You get almost equivalent gains for the same price by doing a swap to a B16A2 or similar. If you want to go forced induction on top of that, then go from there, but its generally recommended that you swap first from a price/performance perspective.
Vortech doesn't make a kit for the D series, so if you're set on supercharging, JRSC is the only option..OshkyCiv said:Is there is reason you are so stuck on the JRSC??
I didnt mean that, I know vortech doesn't make one, but the supercharger doesn't have me sold anymore. Y greddy turbo is more afforadable, and convienent. Deff a beter choice then the JRSC Kit.97CIVICoupe said:Vortech doesn't make a kit for the D series, so if you're set on supercharging, JRSC is the only option..
Two points...dingusjt said:well i know that a turbo timer is made for a turbo...i was wondering if there was an equivalent unit for a sc.
Now do turbos give you more than the supercharger? and reason why i'm going the JRSC route is because i know a good deal of people slanging the JRSC for around $1000-1300.
There are a lot of reasons. I don't want to get into a pissing contest with you, but I'll mention a few.bdc why do you say that the z6 is superior to the rest of the sohc?
BDC - if you swap a Y8 head onto a D16z6 bolck, would you have to switch ECU as well? What about engine wire harness, or the OBDII factor?BlackDeuceCoupe said:In anticipation of the next question?

Sounds like you have a nice setup. I can understand you wanting to defend your choice of engines. Nobody wants to be wrong, but I was simply stating a well known fact and, yes, my opinion. I didn't mean to step on anybody's dreams...
You are correct in saying, a Z6 block with a Y8 head is better than a Z6 block with a Z6 head. Why? A Y8 head has a slightly smaller combustion chamber volume - and I mean slight. It will give you .5:1 [dot-5] more compression. Y8 blocks, on the other hand, are prone to main/rod bearing failure. Why? I don't know, but it's common knowledge. So, the hot setup is a Z6 block with a Y8 head, or just forget the Y8 head and the .5 higher compression ratio.
You've already mentioned the OBD1 vs OBD2 situation. The advantage should be obvious to anyone except a newbie; so, no explanation necessary. Also, with a Z6 engine you don't have to deal with a crank fluctuation sensor, knock sensor, dual heated filament broadband oxygen sensors and all that happy horsesh!t.
I would say there are more bolt-ons and internal parts available for Z6's than any other SOHC Honda engine, but I don't feel like playing Perry Mason, so don't bother asking.
Z6's will bolt into ALL post-'84 CiViCs'. With a Y8 you'll have to fart around with wiring harnesses and so forth.
Anyway, these are a few reasons. I'm not alone in this view, so it shouldn't have come as any surprise to you. Is this really the first time you've ever heard someone say this?
The best way to go is with a chipped P28 ECU using your stock harness...imported said:BDC - if you swap a Y8 head onto a D16z6 bolck, would you have to switch ECU as well? What about engine wire harness, or the OBDII factor?
what does "BDC" Mean???BlackEG_Si said:BDC posts are so refreshing. I wish he was the typical member.
