How little sense it makes, for one. Do you just not want Vtech or is something wrong with the current engine?

If you go with the D16y7, they have a habit of spinning rod bearings.

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

theres really no point in swapping in a non vtec engine. besides as ling as youre not reving the engine up past 5500, vtec wont even engage
