    A little help, I'm a quite rusty with my Honda knowledge. I cannot seem to find a replacement Y8 block for my car locally, but have found a Y7. Can I put my Y8 head on the Y7 short block? Compression differences are no problem, I can tune. Just concerned about oil passages for VTEC engagement.... Thanks!

    Word, the only differences between a Y8 block and a Y7 are the oil pan and the pistons. Everything else is the same.
