    I got a D16Y8 block and im going to buy a D16Z6 head so that I don't have to convert to obd2 and get the conversion harness because I have a Obd1 Harness.

    But anyways I want to get high compression with this build so here's what im getting.
    D16Z6 Head off ebay fully rebuilt
    D16Y8 Intake Manifold
    Full ebay gasket set (Including a MLS Head gasket)
    ACL Bearing
    NPR Piston rings

    Okay so here's my questions
    1) Will I have to convert anything if I put a D16Y8 Intake Manifold on a D16Z6 Head?

    2)Whats good pistons to buy if I want high compression in my D16Y8 Block?

    3)Is the MLS Head gasket, the one that comes with the gasket kits, Is this an okay gasket to use?

    Please somebody answer these questions asap because I'm about to buy this stuff and I dont wana buy something wrong! Thanks so much in advance :)

    Pryor, Ok
    I have seen as high as 13:1 in a D Series but all I could find on Ebay was 10:1 standard bore.
