Default Any advice for someone about to but a jdm d15d in?

Well i just bought a 94 civic si, and 2 days later it throws a rod... so i do not have a lot of money to spend and it is going to be a DD, so I am going with a jdm d15b vtech, I know i need to replace all the belts and the water pump, plugs, cap, rotor, and wires, but what else should i do?
I will also be putting in a stage 1 clutch with 10lbs flywheel, 200hp axles, and a cold air intake, but what do you guys think about the obx intake and 65mm throttle body?
And any other suggestions you might have would be great, I might think about turbo or something later but out of the question now.
Thanks for the info
Chris

obx is crap
get an edelbrock performer x intake manifold
for the throttle body, a stock b-series throttle body will work. just get one off a junked car.
here's a list of stock throttle body sizes: https://www.hondacivicforum.com/foru...ead.php?t=3659

So by crap you mean cheaply made, or does not work well and runs rich and or lean? I am not going for best parts, just want to add a little to it, I am thinking about picking up a b16, or b18 later and building it up on a motor stand till I swap it in, but i am sure that will be a year down the road before I am ready to drop in another motor.

Are you sure that throttle body isn't too big?

i meant the OBX is cheaply made. i've heard the sensor fittings are crap and you will probably need to modify the sensor fittings on the IM to fit your sensors on.
