Just recently bought a cheap EJ9, d14a4, to use as a quiet dd, but this thing is ridiculously slow(ok currently with a 30-35mm restriction on the TB, being the carb style lpg, but that is to go away). I have a bunch of parts collecting dust in my basement, such as JRSC, z6 & y8 heads, colt cam tri-flow 2, 4-2-1 ex, mani, 4.43fd gearbox/st4 pp and a few more. The plan is to go obd1/p28 and then take it from there. I was wondering if any of you gents know the limit of the d14 conrods, as I know they will be the weak link. Afaik, they share thickness similar to d13 rods. Any input on the rod limits, is highly appreciated. Ta

Thanks for the pointer. Looks like the R/S ratio of the d14 is 1.75 - I am very surprised. It is even better than the r/s of the b16. That probably explains why Sebastix's d14 itb turbo, got away with more than 200hp. I guess I will be sending it then.
