More power for D-series engine

Hey,
Any suggestions for more power on a D-series engine? I dont have money for any kind of swaps or turbo kits.

I was thinking about cams gears, shafts, pulley set, ECUs, etc. to get more out of a D-series engine.

Anyone?

I think most of the parts you mentioned will run over $1000. You could do a D16Y8 swap from an Si for that much and gain 20hp right there. Some of the B-series swaps (B20, B16) can be done for a little over $2000. Save your money and do it right the first time.

its not worth it.. if u want more speed youll mod it and it wont be enough then youll regret not swapping int eh beggining... either boost the **** out of this or do a b series.. then boost that

Depending on what model and options a Hatch has, it can weigh up to 200lbs lighter then an Si and 300lbs lighter then an SIR.

A D16Y8 swap would make a Hatch pretty quick for very little money. I've seen the Y8 motors go for $500. I'm surprised more people don't do it.

well it is so hard to find a good condition D16Y8 motor.

Everything seems to have a lot of mileage on it.

Boostd_ITR is selling a complete b18b ls for only $1500.

That's actually not bad. But non vtec. More torque though.
