    Turbo, supercharger, nitrous, all motor... it's really too broad of a question. Hit me up on AIM (House of Boost) if you want to get into the nitty gritty.

    With the D series (your motor is a JDM d16 basically) you can't go swapping around pistons and intake manifolds and cams from other D series motors and see big gains in power because quite frankly most of them suck. The dohc pistons from the ZC motor will raise your compression to 12.6:1. The y8 manifold is the best. The z6 head is rumored to flow the best. as for stock cams, I guess the Y8 is the best, but for $600 you can get the crower cam, valve springs and retainers. Throw in a $100 set of Dohc ZC pistons and you'll be like :driver:

    SOHC ZC= JDM D series. It's nothing to get excited about.

    I'm not getting pissy. Don't get your panties in a bunch. If I were pissy, I would have flamed you to tears.

    its not the 130 hp version, thats the DOHC ZC, the SOHC ZC is like a d16a6 with a little better head and valvetrain.

    Wrong. Maybe 10.7:1, not 12.6:1. Wrong head.
