Acam? I call bs unless you show pics of the build because you would have a cam with that build and you say your just now getting one. The stock cam wiould not allow that engine to run worth a crap

Your saying your running mid 14's with a D16y8? We just did a H22a swap into my buddies 95Ex and it only runs low 14's to high 13's and its still a barely used motor. Lets see some slips to prove this!

^Considering the name of this thread is, "need more out of Y8", I think it's safe to assume that he has a d16y8... lol

No in all reality I see low 14's from what he has listed but I dont see anyone going through with that much work and leaving the stock cam in it. The D15B I had has been put into a eg hatch and has a 92-95 si transmission, S2 manifold, 4-1 header, H22 throttle body, lightened stock flywheel, excedy stg 2 clutch and it pulls a fender on another buddies bold on, clutch/flywheel upgraded ls teg that run 15.2 at Bristol. So I'd say around a low 15.2 maybe a high 15.1 and n2o does wonders for them adding gobs of tq everywhere you spray it. Like I said I dont call bs on the numbers with what he has, it should actually be a tad better but I'd like to see pics of the build.

the H22 throttle body did it do much help b/c i have a h22a (jdm) sit in my back yard... well it is in my accord but will not run b/c of no fire


and i got the dyno on it, some of yall might have already seen it onmy other post, but it had113 to the wheel no spray, and 158 with spray, so i am think about putin the 75 shot on it
