yes. differences? well you would make more power, and you'd have vtakkkk!!!

it's called a mini-me swap.

you will also want to swap that crappy intake manifold out as well

ok this is getting old. it asterisks out the one cam only part if i leave it in there. so just add the y after "onecamonl".

You bumped an 8 year old thread. Furthermore, your question could easily be solved by a Google search.

Farthestmore, **** D series swaps of any sort. DOHC or bust.
