    I JUST did my own. I got a D16A motor which is single cam vtec and there are some differences. One you HAVE VTEC now! But, you have to do a conversion. I haven't gotten that far. ALSO, the hose from the front of the block to the radiator is at a different angle. So, I swapped that over. Also, the distributor doesn't fit. I need to get one from a z6 I guess...not sure what to do yet. Also, there are two wires that went into the back of the engine I think for coolant temp? And those are not there, they are now with a different clip on the passenger side of the engine where the 4 coolant hoses go. Other than that, everything fits fine.
