alright this has been gone over many of times so try the search

but ill give you my opinion on the whole deal

i had a d series motor with v tech and was not happy with it, i found someone who would do the swap for cheap. i got the lsd tranny as well and it all came out to 3200 bucks i believe. this is with everything, the axels, edu, mounts, etc. i think this was def the best thing i could have done because i dont know how much longer my engine would have lasted. if i would have boosted the d series, i would have rebuilt my motor and sleeved it and then i would have boosted it. its just a preference, do you want dohc or sohc? do you want the turbo now or later?

yesh, i know its been gone over but still confusing.
id like a dohc but i think it would be pretty awesome to beat dohc's with my single... i just want to beat some of the comp around my town. so if i mini me with turbo what all would i be able to beat? im not realy ready to spend s h i t loads of money. and if i f u c k up the d16. its only 300 for a hole new one.

i would just by a d16y8 and drop that in there for about 600 bucks or convert to obd1 and drop in the d16z6 for 600 bucks and then use the rest for a bitchen turbo set up... then you will walk all over so many cars
