    If all you want is HP, you'd be better off building the internals and turboing the D. Take a look at the turbo D site, they have a thread of dyno charts, some of them are making 400+ whp.

    Oh, and for info, just go into the FAQ posts for here, honda-tech, d-series, turbo-d, etc etc, and read. keep reading. when you get to the point where you can answer 75% of the questions you see on the board, then you're ready to do your own swap. (I'm still a ways off from that ;) )
