there is no dohc vtec d16 im aware of. both are 16 valve motors though. some people love the dohc zc. parts are a little hard to find but can be sourced. there is much more interchangeability and availability for parts with the non dohc motors. its up to you. personally id go the vtec route. it will be more efficient when you arent mashing the gas and "popping" vtec. lol

B series motor+tranny weighs much more than d series vtec+si tranny
since you have the lightest model Honda on the market, i wouldnt add weight. just my $.02. you can build a d series to get the same HP as a stock B series and it will still weigh a lot less.
b series are a pretty penny, and im really just interested in the D series, so srry if theres some confusion on the thread.
i will most likely do the z6; it very light weight, less expensive, not looking to do to many mods, and i just really want to have a good time with it, thnx guys
