    Hey guys...

    I just snapped a D16Z6 head bolt, do you think I can use a D16Y7 head bolt instead, maybe if I put it on the last spot I tighten? It would only be 1 head bolt..

    Are you reusing the head bolts or replacing them with new pieces? Honda recommends new head bolts everytime, basically once they are torqued then untorqued you should junk them. Of course the higher end brands such as ARP you can reuse a couple of times, but stockers should be trashed.
