should i swap it?
« on: April 06, 2011, 07:36:08 am »
Ok guys, this is my first official post here and i wanna make it a good one. So for the past 6 months i have been contempla ting swapping out my d16z6 for a b series. The thing holding me back is how my D is running. The head is built with skunk 2 stage 2 cams, KMC flat face valves, titanium retainers, 10k springs, block guard, has been port and polished and has an organic head gasket. The bottom end has arp rod bolt and head studs along with race bearings and arias pistons. It runs like crazy and keeps up with LS/V's no problem. I know that I could make more power with a B but dont know if I want to spend the money on a B or just put it into the D series. Any opinions?

I say keep the D I have seen more high hp track cars with D then B and have seen upwards of 900 made on D never that high on a B. If you are holding with a ls-v then instead of putting the money into a B put it into a D and have some fun. Save the single cams they are a dying breed now a days  ;D

Lol. I love the single cam. The look on mustang owners faces when they get walked by what they think is a beat up stocker is great. If I could find a jackson racing superchar ger for the D i'd be in heaven. Im right outside orlando BTW. Yall may have seen me on NWP. My name on there is R1rider66 86.
