bolt ons like..........?????
intake, header and exhaust and if you really want to blow the doors away you can get a nice set of cams and cam gears.

next time I´ll take you for a spin so you can see what I´m talking about

I´ve decided to get the swap in the summer (still paying the loan for the supra:mad: ) instead of boosting my SOHC, just got to figure out what motor to get.

i doubt a B16 with just basic addons can beat a SOHC Turbo.

You're trippin G!


If it were me, i'd keep the turbo, save up for & buy a B16. Turbo that thing, along with a MOTEC system and 310cc injectors, intercoled, and you'll be laughing.

Also depends what mods are on the SOHC turbo. :) They also can be made quick.

How much were you thinking of selling it for? $100 and I'll take it off your hands. ;) jk

It all comes down to the driver. I'd say build the D16Z6 and run 20lbs of boost. I'd take that any day. Or save up fro a B16 adn Turbo that.

I disagree.
It all depends on how much boost their running and the mods they have.
If the SOHC VTEC is running 15lbs then hell no.
But I still wouldp ut my $$ on the SOHC VTEC Turbo

20psi of boost is not for an every day ride, I´ve taken out SOHC with 12-15psi of boost so thats why I say a B16 will kill a boosted D16
