Thanks for the info guys! I figured as much but I'm trying to squeeze more power out of this D series motor, any suggestions? aside from the intake and exhaust(Already done), and the Turbo(can't Afford).

save your money and wait until you can afford something like a turbo.

Nope, u can't swap a DOHC head from a b-series onto a D-series.
Really, the only way to get more power is to turbo it. They are pretty quick when turbo'ed, and with all of the money you would waste on worthless upgrades like pulleys for instance, you should just save it and get a turbo kit. For D-series they can get pretty cheap.

Wrong, the ZC head will fit... Get you a cheap nitrous kit and you will be fine, better than a turbo kit in price and all, and pretty easy to install yourself...!!!

My friend has a D Series turbo kit for sale for $400. It aint no turbotechnics, but it will get the job done. Its an internal wastegate which is leaking- not hard to fix.

flaming serves no purpose whatsoever.... the zc is a d-series head and the zc head swap is not exactly trivial and due to limited availability of zc head components, you are actually quite limited in what you can do when running the zc head.

So to the original poster. 2 cams doesn't necessarily mean more power.
