    I have heard about putting vitara pistons and stuff into a d16 turbo and it lowers the comp ratio and is alot stronger and can run safely 12-15 pounds, is this true?what other parts do i need for the bottom end rebuild.

    its true
    the only reason you can run more boost is because of the low ass CR.

    in HT you can search for panda motor..

    you can use b16 rods or you can buy the cheaper tuner toys rods [they are forged] but youll have to notch the block with the TT rods

    Not 100% correct...

    The pistons that people like to use are aftermarket pistons made FOR the Vitara that are actually stronger than factory. Pair them with B16 rods and you have a cheap combo that can handle a od bit of boost.

    Clutch/flywheel prices are good for brand new parts, especially considering you're talking about CAN dollars.

    The piston/rod combo can be found by searching for "TurboPanda" on Honda-Tech. He sold them.

    look up the user FJT on honda-tech he sells them for pretty cheap. i'm actually planning on building another D series to run while my all motor gsr is getting sleved this winter.
    there are a few people runnign nothign more then vitara pistons, eagle rods, with ARP headstuds and running crazy boost. i'll look and see if i can find the post of one that comes to mind and post it up.

    I have a couple of ?s.
    What octain fuel are you running for the 400hp,and how well was it tuned?
    At the strip what type of tires did you use?
    Did you have to bore out the block for the vitara pistons?
    And what piston rings did you use?

    you should always run 91 octane when driving a boosted car, and the numbers show it was tuned well, probly runs 24" slicks or slightly smaller, the pistons drop right in a stock d series and come with rings normally if you get them from FJT or ebay.
