    ok i run a 75wet shot on my d16y7 but i would not advise it if you want your motoe to last more than a year or two a 55 would be just fine. I would recomend a FPR and maby a larger fuel pump. you will be happy with what ever you do just rember that your motor is cheep 3-500 to replace so go big or dont waste your money on the kit. you moght try http://www.d-series.org/ for some good d motor info. there are guys an there runin 100 and 125 shots on all stock interals.

    could probably, your not going to want to increase your engines output by more than 50% is the rule I believe, so your going to be right at that limit with a 65
