    Well, if you have the money I would just get an ls and go turbo. I am personally putting on an IHI T3 on my D16 right now and i will run about 8lbs of boost and a 50 shot of spray. I don't see anything wrong with boosting a D15 expept they are not built with very strong internals. I am running just a 50 shot of spray and I need new piston rings already, but I have put probably 12 bottles through my engine.

    If you want to boost the D15, I would say lower your compression, put forged pistons and rods in it and boost the hell out of it. The lower the compression the more boost you can run.

    BTW. I have stock internals but I am still going to boost that. I have a friend with the same engine as I do and he runs 6psi of boost and has had the turbo for a year now. With no real problems.

    Thats just my two cents.

    No offense, but a grammer check, and some periods would be nice.


    It never ceases to amaze me how long some people make their sentences. :blink:

    I agree, it would be cheaper and easier to swap in an LS motor. You would have more Hp and TQ than a turbo d15 (with stock internals anyway)And you could turbo charge that motor down the road and OWN just about every ricer in your town. :woo:

    turboing your d15 is like putting a gas motor on a scooter. No matter how much faster you make it, it's still slow.
