    hi, welcome to HS :wave:

    if you want my opinion, scrap the y8, go for the D16z6. it wont cost too much more, and you will have alot more fun with it.

    but out of your 2 choices, the y8.

    maybe he doesnt have enough $$$ to buy a bseries swap and do what he wants to do with the engine..... like me, i want a turbo-ed car.. i can get a d16 and build my own turbo kit for less $$$ that it would be to buy a stock b series swap, hence the reason why im not going B... if i had an extra 2 grand lying around, sure id buy a b16 and turbo that.. but im broke and out of a job until school ends so d series is fine for me..

    dohc does have much more potential though, maybe look into getting a dohc zc.. close power rating as sohc but can hande a little more power... around the same price too, if u shop around...

    but if ur sticking to sohc, def. get the y8 or a z6... id prefer z6.. you will be happier in the long run

    turboB20hatch. you are not aloud to speak.




    definitly go with the y8. or mix it up with d15 block and y8 head, ecu.
    but definitly support you with wanting to go d series... its more honda like. ;)
