    Im from canada, my friend has a 98 DX hatch with a JR supercharger

    he was doing about 200kms ~120mph and the car just died, i pulled the head off for him, and 2 valves were bent

    so i picked up a cdn SI head vtec, i modified the distributor to work from the old head

    wired up a rpm activated switch with a 4500rpm

    what else should i know??

    does this head have smaller combustion chambers?

    what model D16 has the thickest headgaskets????

    Thanks in advance :)

    did you take the piece out of the block to let oil flow to the head for vtec
    and also you should consider geting a ecu for a d16y8. you will run lean when you go in vtec and with a sc you will make the problem worse.
