    i blew my headgasket on my d15 in my civic dx and i ended up throwing a rod through my block. so my question is will a d16z6 block work on the d15 head with no problems cause i found a full block for $75.

    The comression is going to go down or it will stay the same with the dish z6 piston but it will work. What happen to the rod? did you hydrolock the engine?
