    I hate to burst your bubble, but the D16Z6 makes more hp, and only a little less tq than the A20 that is currently in his car....and the D16Y8 closes the tq gap even more, while adding to the Hp gap.


    Still a useless swap though....

    yeah like what like a 10 or 20hp difference lol and plus that engine probably be the same as the a20 cause the accord is heavier than the civic lol do the math

    well i thought he had a sedan or coupe lol but hatch is good

    well he could swap it and do some weight reduction and maybe be up there... i went up againt my friend with his civic with a d16z6 with turbo and my car was stock and wouldnt even reach its power so it was like a street drag race from light to light but i admit the d16z6 sounds nice with the turbo

    Re: D Series Swap...

    alright thanks guys the reason i was going to do the D series is because my friend had one and was getting rid of it and my car has 250xxx miles on it =/ but i also have an Ls motor which i think would be the better choice but it seems like it would be kind of spendy??

    Re: D Series Swap...

    there is no replacement for displacement!! 1.6L will never be as strong as lets say 2.0 or 2.2. The fact of the matter is that there is no point in swapping and spend all that time and money on something like Dseries. If you CAN do it, then go and do B18C at least or H22.
    I dont want to burst your bobble here, but if you were serious and had the skil, you'dd cam here and asked some details about wiring or axles, not if its possible to swap. Anything is possible.

    Its prttey fnuny how you can raed tihs eintre snetnece with all tehse ellters out of palce...

    Re: D Series Swap...

    Hmm true on that d series isn't the best motor unless you have the money for the sick tuning and time it will take.... but a turbo d series might beat the h22 but the d16y8 has like what 127hp and the b20 like 130hp? Correct me if I'm wrong cause I'm on my cell

    Re: D Series Swap...

    it depends on what B20 we talking about. the B20z engines make 150Hp, B20a makes 136Hp or JDMv makes 160Hp. B20z with B18c head makes 220Hp aprox.
