Really I don't recommend it to you. To swap on a 7th gen I just go with a K20. All other engine uses some parts and wires that it don't have or may need hard work to fit.

I know the D17 is a non-loved engine, everybody knows that. But before swap any older d-series I think is better do it with your own engine.

I think I can extract the same hp, or more, of that engine. It is a stroked D16 tuned for econommy.

What I am saying is the dimensions of the d17 are almost the same as the d16 (bore, rod length, deck height, etc.). The major difference is the stroke, the d17 have a stroke of 94.4mm and the d16 is 90.0mm.

For me I don't like the idea of swap older d-series engine because you have to swap some more parts just to have a little d-series. No matter, it is just my opinion, you do with your own car whatever you want.
