Smile New Member from SA!

hey guys! just joined the site about 2 days ago. Already read alot of threads and some very good info. Im from south africa and civics here are soooo rare!! i drive a 97' civic hatch D15Z4.... motor still completely stock. Only modification is a SRI induction kit. Thinking of forced induction, and ive read up on some previous threads, wheter to do n B-series swap or just boost the current D15Z4 ive got in at the moment. I want to get about 160kw on the wheels, or 215whp in your terms. I read that thats more or less the limit on the stock rods and internals on the D15 motors. But dont know if i want to take a chance. Would rather go forged and spend the money and know my motor is reliable. My question actually is: Would it be possible to get so much power out of the little 150i motor and still use it as a day to day driving car?? Would appreciate any info alot! cause its hard to find good info and people who really know civics well in South Africa!

Hi Ryan, welcome to the site!

Check out the tech section and more specifically, the forced induction section. There are lots of threads about this very topic that should help answer most of your questions. If you still have more questions, feel free to post a new thread in that section and we'll do our best to help you out.
