I'm going to turbo my D16Y8, their quick and cheaper to get parts for, but if you do it wrong you will be out of an engine really fast. there's hundreds of threads on both a swap and turbo D16's just do the research and you will be flying down the road in no time!
^ For the cost to go NA on a d series and make anypower you could swap in another motor or rebuild it and boost it and make alot more hp NA on d series engines are very expensive and you get hardly no return hp wise.
Wells there's tons of threads out there with this question but just for s**ts and giggles:
Go turbo. You'll have fun boosting it and when you blow up your engine from not doing it right you can get a B series.
If you do it right and don't blow your engine, then you'll have that much more fun.
Hmmmm. yeah both sounds like the best idea.
After having a a d16y8 and going to a b16 i really felt like i wanted to boost the b16. Not because it wasn't enough, but for the fun in having a boosted car.
I think i would have been sufficiently happy with a D16 boosted.
I feel like my next challenge will be to boost my b16(if i don't get rid of it) or supercharge my S.
1. Youre an idiot.
2. Dont ever give advice again.
OP, boost gives you massive torque, more torque than you could ever gain with an intake and a header. Honestly if you want to boost, ride in a boosted Civic/Integra. Everyone and their mothers wants to boost but no one ever does, till they ride in a boosted Civic/Integra.
I made 207whp/190tq with an eBay turbo kit. It actually made 230 but I had it detuned. Good luck maknig this much torque with a B16A2.
