Hey all, I'm new to the boosting scene. I have a 97 hatch with a d16y7 stock motor (105k miles). So in the past month(s) I've been reading up on turbo d's, and can see the power potential for them. My question is, is the y7 worth boosting, or should I swap to a z6 or y8 motor instead? I know the y7 is the weakest of the d's, so I was hoping some of the y7 boosters could chime in and gimmie their 2 cents on boosting y7's and what they're running. But ANY input would be greatly appreciated. thanks everyone!

I'm boosting my y7, just to see what it can do.
I'd suggest, getting the y8 Intake manifold first, then boost it.
Also, you're going to need bigger injector, because the y7s are 190CC.

I agree, the Y7 is a fun motor to boost or so Ive heard....
Had really didn't have a choice, it was the only 4dr civic i could get quickly.
The y7 has it draw backs, the gay ass intake manifold, no v-tec(i like it better without Vtec)

You will be raping the shit out of B-series motors. A GSR isnt shit compared to a boosted single cam :thehump:
