    20? 30 at the crank? Who knows... you'd be raising your compresion from the low 9s to the mid 12s, so you'd gain quite a bit right there. Add the ZEX cam, make sure you have good quality intake/header/exhaust and you should be sitting pretty nice. I'd hazard a guess at 160hp (crank) with good tuning, maybe more.

    The setup would run great. I run ZC pistons in my d16y8 and I love it. You just have to warm your car for 10 mins before you drive it. My engine knocks something terrible. I'm running 92 octane with a octane booster and it still knocks. But I love it.

    For 1) Jason wasnt putting you down. 2) "Im with stupid" is just saying.. "I agree with him". 3) I am not sure your age, but imports are dominated by teens and "slang". "Werd" basically means, "hell yea" and sorts. :)

    nah dont trip everyone, i can stick up for myself... thanks to everyone who stuck up for me... :worthy:

    HOOKUPSPROCRX, nah i was not putting you down in anyway, i was completely agreeing with what you said in your previous post... dont take it the wrong way.... thank you for the compliment of me being Knowledgeable, but i KNOW that you are 100x smarter than me when it comes to imports, i KNOW you've been doing this longer than me... so dont take me the wrong way
