    i am desperately looking for a z6.. but i have found a good deal on a jdm d15 vtec, i think i might settle for it just because i have been waiting for sooo damn long... would they both make the same power at the same boost level, say 7psi on the same turbo and all that crap? im thinkin the z6 would make more, but then again i always seem to find exceptions to my rulings

    the problem with d15b's is that there's 3 variety's of them....

    87 hp, 100hp, and the 130hp model.

    theres a good chance you can get a bad one from a shitty dealer.

    if you can't find a z6, you're not looking very hard.

    there's like 5 for sale in the classifieds right now here, hundred on honda-tech, and 1000s more in junkyards everywhere.

    be that as it may, the d15b vtec and the 6 are very close. it won't make the SAME power, as the d15 has a mid-stage vtec-e lobe, but it will be pretty damn close, and pretty petty to say one is better than the other.

    the d15 will have more compression though, so keep that in mind when it comes to fueling and tuning it.

    as for the statement above about vtec and boost....
    you're simply wrong, and slow.

    I say do the d16, I'd get the jdm d15b only if I were to make a great daily driver that gets awsome gas milage. Plus d16 are plenty.

    i have been looking everywhere for an affordable z6. the only ones i come up with are on the other side of the country, then i have to pay boatttloads for shipping.. i might have a deal on some stuff right now, but i have been to every junkyard in the surrounding towns.. only one had a z6, wtf, and the only one that did wanted 600 for only the engine, no 'accessories' or whatever, no ecu, no tranny, no alternator, no dizzy, i offered him 300, guess that wasnt enough for him tho

    I think we were calling you slow in an area not relating to the transfer of horsepower. It probably has to do with an archaic statement that spoke against using new technology simply for the fact that the speaker believes it is too complex.

    that, and VTEC heads will always outflow a non-vtec head.

    port the non-vtec head all you want... but jsut remember, i can do the same to a vtec head....

    .... additional injector setup + dumb fuel management = only for the name brand concious. Or the people who wish their CRXs were Festivas, or whatever the domestic equivalent is.

    Don't dog on the festiva. A b6t swapped festiva would smoke your si, with zero modifications to the motor.

    Just find a Z6(which there are plenty) and do a custom kit yourself, you will be happy in the long run

    Far from it. I'm just comparing it to the CRX. They have the same good qualities, just nobody has caught on to the festiva yet (and nobody makes the 50+ horsepower widebody kit. Damn).
