care to explain why?

im running a stage 3 cammed zc vtec (jdm z6) and it isnt fast enough.. i have 99.9% of the turbo parts here and they will be goign on asap.. imo turbo is the way to go with a sohc..
ill have under 2k with my whole setup, all namebrand quality parts.. and throw down around 230 whp.... thats about 100 more than im at now na.....

Like I have always said, IMO an N/A D powered car is more fun than a boosted one. (I have had a few boosted motors).. Yeah they are cool. But coming up to a light and having some "dipstick" thinking he is so fast. Then when he gets smoked, he comes up with all kinds of reasons why he lost or got beat by a naturally aspirated D motor.. Thats more fun than anything.

i figure right now i probably run 14s... with the turbo low low 13s are definitely doable at 10-12 psi for me...
modding you car 1 way or the other just so you can say "you got beat by an na sohc" is stupid imo... i just want to be fast.. 99% of the people i race dont know my setup and never will....

Thats true. Most people dont know all I have either. Or they may think they know. Everyone has their own opinion. Like I said that is just mine... My DD with the new Bisi head will be in the low 12's respectively according to Bisi himself.. But mine is carbed not injected also.

I personally think that force feeding these damn poorly flowing heads is the way to go... but I've had fun with a few NA builds. Just depends on what you want out of it. And as far as reliability goes, I've actually lost more d-series to NA than I have boost.

Out of all the D motors I have built, the only ones I grenade are the ones I put too much nitrous to.

But if i was to go N/A could i be beating stock b-series or would a turbo set-up be better for taking down b-series motors.
Well what chassis is your motor going into? What trans are you using? What b-series motors do you have in mind? If you want something that is going to be faster, it's probably easier to go the boost route.

From stoplight to stoplight, turbo lag isnt any fun. For a DD like I said IMO N/A with some serious bolt on's you would be hard to beat.

unless you have some serious predisposition to wanting to stay NA, and far more capitol to commit to such a build, go turbo.
