    A buddy of mine said that I can put a DOHC ZC head on my D16Y8 block.
    Anyone done this before? Can it be done or is he just a retard?

    why not just get a DOHC ZC engine? - if you were to put a DOHC ZC head on a D16Y8 without changing pistons, you would end up with compression ratio of 7.95:1 which is not much good for anything - DOHC ZC heads have been swapped onto SOHC D-series blocks, but not without a lot of machining - a ton of work to get the same thing as you would (provided you changed pistons) if you just used a DOHC ZC
