but take into consideration how much your willing to spend in comparison to getting a v tec d16 and boosting it...cause if your wantin to turbo the 15 it sounds like you want some power and you can have more potential with a d16y7 or z6

i dont know if i want to swap the whole engine, i was thinking about getting a z6 head, however, if i do decide to drop a d16 in, besides the ecu, will i have to change other stuff such as axles and tranny?

you wont have to change anything but the ecu. if you change just the head, you might run into more problems. because the head wasnt made for that block. but if you swap a d series vtec motor, and mess with some simple wireing, youll have much more reliability and power. the axles are the same, the tranny will work, and the mounts are the same.
