    grab a D16Y8 intake manifold
    PnP all that
    get a cam / gear
    and high compression pistons
    also a D16Y8 head gasket is 1/2 the thickness of the Z6 one so that can get you some more compression
    and it might be a good time to look into something to tune with

    For pistons you can use a set of D16a6 (the crx si) pistons to up your compression, or even ZCs fit if I am correct, but you guys can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    Oh and forget the pullies, they're a wast of 200$.

    The flow in a Y8 manifold is superior to that of a Z6.

    i second that. the y8 i/m is like the type-r i/m for the d motors.

    the t/b doesn't have to be from a GSR... the ones from the b18b is also 60mm which i'm using.

    fyi i have: d16a6 bottom end, y8 head, y8 i/m port-matched to a b18b t/b and other stuff...

    well i thought i needed a t/b that was vtec - would it be worth getting the y8 intake instead of the skunk2 - will the flow rate be worth the $ im paying for the skunk2 ??

    there is nothing on the throttle body that makes it "VTEC" ... get an integra LS one 60mm and cheap yO.

    i'd get a skunk2 one if they ever come out... better than OEM.
