YES.

Vtec isn't all its made out to be. Get some good high compression pistons, good rods, a wild cam, valvesprings and retainers, a good P&P, i/h/e and you'll be putting down some good numbers, especially after you tune...

:D

I think the d15 is a better engine than the d16....

they will work, but with wrong pin location barely change the compression.

Swapping a headgasket provide more of a change.

For example, D15B7, changing from the stock graphite HG to the Y8/Z6

9.28 to 9.51

Swapping the P29 pistons in yet retaining the graphite HG

9.28 to 9.48

Doing both

9.28 - 9.72

Without touching the bottom end, mill the head .030" and Z6/Y8 HG

9.28 - 10.22, the most cost effective way.

All three, P29's, Y8/Z6 HG, mill .030"

9.28 - 10.47

Now my setup with the longer rods, P29's, Y8 HG

9.28 - 13.72 and I have clearance issues along with a big tuning headache, it will not be a street motor.

As far as tuning, get it chipped by a reputable person (ie Xenocron)

And then get it tuned with Crome (Free) or hondata or something. You can tune any car and get more power out of it.. Even a stock one i believe.

Why not zero the deck height? (with short rods)

mill the block? Why?

for the OP that requires removal from the car.

Start milling alot and your looking at other headaches, besides, zero decking is for wimps :) let them hang out!

Perhaps not removing the block is for wimps. Block decking is for increased resistance to detonation through improved quench, as I understand it.

Liveforphysics: "It is NEVER ideal, even for radical boost applications to have a piston sit below deck."

You know all this, so what headaches are you speaking of. Are the gains not worth the costs?
