D series VTEC headisn't going to net you a whole bunch of power, it's designed for gas mileage. Neither will a cam gear.

Your best bet to keep up with B16s and eclipses is to put a b16 in the car. The D15b's are designed for gas mileage, not racing.

wrong

Mini-me swaps have been proven to net fairly decent gains. You won't be breaking sound barriers, but you'll feel a considerable increase in power

Oh, and the b16 is the most over rated Honda engine ever produced.

Ok I should have specified "a whole bunch of power" I meant. "You're not going to be keeping up with b16's and eclipses with it".

The fact that a D series isn't going to be a huge gain is not 'wrong'.
