if you had the warranty just remove the turbo kit and if they havent seen it before they may fix it! just try!

go wit a b series swap, gonna cost you less and you'll get more whp in the end. i dont wanna hear that the k series will get you more HP stock, its just that the k series engines havent been as finely tuned as b series ones.

Yet another engine gone due to an oil problem. So did you spin a bearing or what?

Hook up with LKQ.com, they have a good stock of d17s with low milage. Good luck with the repair!!

Unless you have an 01 the only legle b swap you can do is a B18 out of 2001 integra. :-) but if you were smart save the dough sell your turbo, and save a little bit, get a k20, and hook it up. But thats my 2 cents. if you want to get anouther D seiries, you can find them pretty cheep, if you were hear i got my old block, dont know what kind of shape its in, cause it was knocking when i hydrolocked it, probably a bent vavle or something, but ehh just a tought.

No, they've been more finely tuned. Not to mention the fact that mounts for a B-series swap are still, to the best of my knowledge, unavailable. Stick with K, B-series engines are getting harder and harder to find.

thanks guy, what happened was i was running about 10psi the other night with about 1 quart of oil in the motor. i had no idea, i thought i had fixed my oil leak at the turbo drain line, but i guess it sprung again. oh well. i ordered a new rod bearing for #4 cylinder today, ho[pefully it will fix it.

makes sense tho, 4th cylinder is farthest from the oil pump, im willing to guess it had no oil in the guides, and spun.

I have the same problem with my return line.....i can't keep the line clamped and it keeps slipping and leaking. I keep checking the oil constantly.

If i blow my motor, i will swap the motor with the spare d17 sitting in my garage and but it back to stock.

^^I'm a fan of both motors, but several experts such as hytech and hasport have already said there so much more potential in the k-series. But since they are a newer motor they are so much more expensive.

I've got a better question about the k-series and b -series debate that's going on......who the f*ck cares, and if there is someone that does care, start ur own damn thread about it, don't highjack another thread to argue about it.

hey man i totally agree with you, if you guys want to argue over k and b series take it somewhere else, cause i already said that aint the route im goin, and basically i can care less. im stickin with the d series, id rather have forced induction then all motor, i just like the idea of it. so the turbo d17 is where ill stay. i want to build myself a nice one tho, so thats what im gonna work on.

and my luck latley freekin sucks, yeah first the hood and now my motor. oh well. **** happens. thanks for lookin out guys.

well my man. im with you on the b-series swap. i would rather pay mm 2500 for s b16, or 3500 for a GSR. and through the 6k left over into the motor. what is it 10k for the swap and everything you need for a k20. 10K in a b-series will get you alot more.

I wish i came across a good deal on a b16 or b18. Id pick it up in a heart beat.

And to the person that said they are getting harder and harder to find. MM where is that at cause i can find them pretty dam easy.
