    hi,

    I have a d15B vtec engine on my 1999 hatch
    I was trying to get a performanced camsahft , I cant find it for a d15B just for d16Z6,

    So Im thinking to replace the d15b vtec head for a d16z6 Head.
    So I can buy a d16z6 crower camsahft stage 2 , springs ..
    Im thinking in a p28 ecu also

    So Im asking for your advise, what Do you think about it, can be Done?:huh:
    1.- Do I have to make some modifications, like oil lines?
    2.- Can I use the D16y8 head gasket in this swap?
    3.- what timing belt Do I have to Use?
    4.- Do I have to put the d16z6 Distributor?

    Thanks for readind this post.

    Do I need adjustable cams

    I have heard that I have to put some adjustable cam gear if I use the z6 camshaft, is this correct?

    thanks

    if its the 96+ OBDII D15B VTEC, forget about it. That engine is 3-stage VTEC and there's no other engine that uses that or an ECU that can control it. If its the 92-95 D15B VTEC, then yea the Z6 parts is correct(same head casting, etc.)
