    D series motor take turbo very well stock singles can boost 8lbs safe on stock internals all day long but if your gonna boost and rebuild motor mite as well do some upgrades while you have it torn down

    well honestly if your going to put some money into the d series your better off just buy a b series and get more hp for the buck but if your intent on your d series id just do the basics like cams intake mani TB maybe pistons and arp head studs eagle rods maybe upgrade the valves, but again if your gonna spend that kind of money then just buy a GSR boost 8lbs and that would be cheaper than building a d series and you would get alot more HP
