IM really glad i found this!... ive been wanting to get my car going on the track and in autocross... and every one has been telling me to get a DOHC!!! but i really want to keep the SOHC just so i can show the DOHC's up lol. and i just found thru a friend, budget auto wrecking i might be able to get a d16 and tranny out of an Si for 500 bucks, and a greddy turbo kit from him... he has it on a d16z6 motor, and is running 13.45's at 5pounds...
Im really stunned to hear that the d15 and d16 is a good motor.. i have heard nothing but BS from the DOHC boys, its good to hear my lil d15 is built like a tank, it explains why i havent blown her yet lol...
Fantastic info thanks so much for this. Now i have seen that chiping the ECU and fuel pump, and injectors are good to change as well. I have a 98 civic HB what can i do and is this right or a good idea. Thanks in advance
As far as the right idea or not..is up to you.
Do you know your way around engines well? Can you provide almost constant maintenance ? There are a lot of questions you have to ask before you know if this is really something you want to step into.
well i geuss I worded it wrong. do you have to mod or change the ECU. Sorry. I know that injectors and fuel pump would be recomendeddue to the change in A/F ratio but i was more concerned in the computer.
definately get a new ECU. You won't get much out of the turbo on the stock one, and you're more likely to lean out on the stock computer. Go with a fully programable ECU that you can tune on the road or on a dyno
damn lol dats tight bro! i might be getting the top mount and manifold by a gu that works in afi (arizona forced induction) i want to very badly. but ey i juss went wit da ebay kit and upgraded the wastegate and b.o.v it workd great but now i upgraded alot of other things but alot of ppl dnt recomend it but it workd for me kinda cheap build unless u got the cash 2 buy a savage turbonetics or something lol
