    Ok, what i was told was a z6 head turned out to be a y7 head, only found this out weeks after collecting it :Frown:

    Well its gonna have to make do and will save me money hopefully not needing extra ancillaries etc!

    My question now is which ancillaries will i need from a d16 if any? Stock d14a4 motor atm, i have the z6 IM which i will swap over the TB and IACV etc!
    Much appreciated!

    The D16Y8 is the same as the D16Z6 isn't it? They both have VTEC whereas the Y7 didn't.

    To be honest I didn't know you could put a D16 head on a D14. The only mini me swap I know about is the Y8 head on a Y7.

    As you say yer, the first recorded swaps were d14 to d16z6! I dunno if id need the samesas if i was adding VTEC obv for future tuning etc?!

    As @Hondalad said, the Y7 is a nontec head, it won't give you VTEC. I'd probably say start looking for a Y8, Z6 or W4 head... I'd reckon your best bet was trying to find a 1.5 or 1.6 VTEC MB3/4 Civic or MB9/MC1 Aerodeck. They're generally the cheapest to find.
