you can fully build a sohc vtec but then youll be at the same power output as a b16 or b18c with bolt ons.

yup, i just want a fully build D series motor. so when i pop the hood, all you gonna see is the intake and header. sure its going to be a little harder to make the D series faster but, its going to be in a very very light weight car. bye bye interior

I remeber there was a guy on the board that had a NA D16 that ran in the 13's... and I also heard about some pro drag racr that has a D15 that's in the 10-11's.... so it's possible, but it's gonna take some fine tuning and mucho $$$

SOHC's are just as good

You can build a sohc to a point where it will be as good or even better than B series.. If you did some internal work to a D series, it will be much better than a B series with just the bolt ons... There's a guy that's hitting 13's, all motor... and he's hoping (and he probably will) to dip in the 12's soon... just with a D series motor. Check out Wouldn't it feel good when you smoke the DOHC's with your little SOHC? And when you pop your hood for 'em and they just see a single overhead, they'll be looking for the nitros... and they find nothing... Hahahaha...

I have always loved the D series motors. The D16z6 is a great motor to work with. It has a shit load of potential. Good luck

what would it take to hit high 14s on a SOHC VTEC motor in a crx/hatch. lets use the base models, HFand DX with interior weight reduction. im not familar on SOHC im used to the DOHC's as you can see in my sig. BTW i love being the underdog

SOHC rules - that's all I have to say


maybe not

ok... I've wasted so many DOHC civics and CRX's it's funny... I think my proudest accomplishment was wasting an integra with an H22 with bolt ons.. he thought I had a loaded B18 in there and when I popped the hood for him to see my 1.5L SOHC powerplant he freaked and wanted to race again... sadly, I had fried my head gasket and was losing compression.. so we still have yet to schedual the rematch.. but fuck.. I know I'll waste him again..
