Default D16y7

Ok i have a D16y7 sohc (about 106 stock)there is alot of talk about people doing swaps and boosting and just boosting their d-series engines...I was wondering if it would be better for me to either stick with the d16y7 and boost it, or for me to do a swap like a b16 or b18 and thenboost??

you can boost it but i had a friend boost his and it blew when tuning it. He got it fixed and it goes fine now.
Either swapping or boosting will both give you what you want. But if i was you go with the b18c

I boosted a Y7 for a good while, it did blow but because I was at the track and upped my boost to 18psi butdid not put my 18psi tune on my ecu. It's a ok engine but I suggest a Y8 intake manifold and a 96-00 ex transmission for starters

^ What Marty said.

D series are no more suseptable to "blowing" than any other motor. Most people will tell you to mini me, but your head is fine with a port. The only head worth using unported is a Z6.

first mod should be a 96-00 ex transmission, then intake manifold and intake.

Will an intake manifold from a Y8 bolt up to my Y7 Head. I don't want to do the Mini swap, I would prefer to just do the intake manifold and work from there. What do I do for a throttle cable?

yes

a mini-me swap can be quite rewarding... bolt-on 25hp.

I have decided to do the mini me. I am going to start collecting parts for the build. I have found stock intake manifolds but what do I do about the sensors. I found a complete wiring harness for a d16y8 from a 99 ex manual, would this solve the sensor connector problem, I would prefer not to cut wires to make it fit.
