the b series will give you a very noticeable change. if you build a d series (cams, pistons, rods, and all other internals and some other stuff like intake, exhaust, header, all the usual. you can keep up with just the stock b series civics.

Neither kicks in. VTEC isn't supposed to kick in, it is supposed to be a smooth transition. If the engine has work done to it and it kicks in, then it isn't set a at optimal RPM.

 

A SOHC with bolt-ons will keep up with a stock B.

my d16z6 hatch was side by side with b18(ls) hatchback

so itz all about the driver..and the sohc rev's quicker than the B/H series motors

so yes.. a Ls has 142 hp and a d16z6 has 126hp...but...the LS takes longer to rev..therefore..it has 142high rpm hp
