    Any D-series freaks built one of these before? (take D17A7 GX internals and stuff em in a D16A6 block) Thinking about it since I have a lot of old stuff lying around and I have access to even more old stuff.

    Thanks

    Just don't do what they did and use a non-VTEC D15B pulley(shaving it made it worse also).

    I may be wrong but using a y8 cam gear may help too.

    what else would work other than the 15b pulley??...i think I would go with an aftermarket Camgear...AEM's are cheap on eBay and are really good...same with their fuel rails which they also upgraded too in the article. It's a pretty complex but cool swap I think...HT got 171.1 HP at 7600 RPM, ,then dialed it back to 165HP @ 6900RPM so that the torque curve was wider, it peaked at 135.2 lb-ft @ 5400 RPM....personlly I think it's pretty good...especially for an underdog D-series....just not sure where I want to put it...in my EK or my EG :D

    You know that motor blew up, right? I believe they rebuilt it and did some changes, and was doing better, but eventually it was retired.

    Does anyone know the changes they made?? I understand as well that they play it up somewhat...but my whole premise behind doing this is to have something really different that can potentially make decent power with no vtec or power adders and only single cam.....just can't get enough of the D :D

    So in order to get bitches, I have to have power, get over myself, be beautiful like LSVTEC and umm, make more power? GOTCHA! I'm going to go supercharge, turbo and NOS my stock Z6 right now. Then drive it reeeeeeeeeeeally slowly to a light by the college that's near by, find some bitches in the car next to me, grin at them, wink, then go full throttle, smoke my tires and TAKE OFF! I'm sure everything will be fine with that. After all, the engine is stock and built with...ready for this? OEM PARTS ONLY! YEAH BABY! That'll get them swooning to me. I'll make sure the car isn't washed either so it'll have that "rough" look that women are so into nowadays.

    Then again, I don't even feel right joking about that. haha
