    You could swap a larger displacment block in like the d16a6 block. I'm not sure about with the d15 but with the d16 you can get better rods and pistons. If you plan on staying all motor the extra displacment will deffinatly help. Another thing you could do after swaping the block is get some higher compression pistons.

    Some cheap bolt ons would be a B series throttle body, d16y8 intake, larger cam with upgraded springs/retainers etc. Although I would suggest you save up and put in a turbo or save for a B series swap.

    Do a cheap custom/junkyard turbo kit. All motor d-series will be slow no matter what you do.
