Default D16y7 hp and tq.

What would be a rough estimate of what kind of hp and tq a D16y7 with a y8 intake manifold, AEM shortram intake, a header, and veilside exaust system? What other mods would you recomend to bring the hp up to around 160-170?

[email protected]/[email protected]? not sure on the RPM for teh tq.

turbo would be your best and cheapest way to up your hp that much.

I would recomend putting a y8 head on there. You'll be gaining 21HP and VTEC! Search Mini Me for more info man. But with a y8 head and a good port n polish job, I'm sure you could hit your HP goals. Afterwards you could then slap on a turbo and with a good dyno produce even more hp.. or you could just turbo it right away like Nail said.

Looked at info on the mini me swap I decided to go it and get it ported and polished like you said. Then add boost later on. Thanks for the help.

before you do the mini-me get the y8 transmission. its one of the best things you can do for a y7 powered car.

ps with 'all those mods' hed be lucky if he was hitting stock chp at teh wheels.
