    It's 02:40 AM, I don't need to read something like this this late. :( do some reading on this site, and no, you can't swap a LS head onto your D series block.

    no sohc (d-series) head can be converted to dohc. look into maybe a motor out of an integra or any b-series motor.

    Not true, you can turn SOHC D's to DOHC using the DOHC D series heads.

    And it is raise, not raze, punctuation and capitalization are your buddies, and don't be lazy.

    Yes, you can swap some of the older DOHC D series heads onto some of the older SOHC D series blocks., It isn't a perfect match but takes very little modding.

    Im curious as to which older d-series DOHC heads you think it is possible to swap on to which older d-series blocks if you are talking about the D16a1 that is not true, the head bolt pattern is different unless you are talking about drilling and tapping new head bolt holes, which if you are, i hardly consider that little mods

    I don't think, I know, a guy did it here, along with some people here, here, and this guy., I didn't say it "just bolts on", but it is not a complicated process. I tell you what, when the guy down the street that has both sitting in his garage gets off his lazy ass, and puts it together, I'll take a pic or two, so if I am wrong, you can gloat, if I am right, well, one less "fact" dispelled.

    I am sorry if i mouth offed some good members and sorry if i pissed some of you people off but i did read alot through the FAQ's. It took me about two hours to find something not worth even looking at. and sorry about my punctuation and capitalization but i tried my best. I live in US only two years and i dont think thats enought to learn to speak (in this case write) perfect english, please forgive me :unsure: i will try my best next time and HUGE thanks to all who replied. this was really helpful. Thanks... :D

    all those sites lead to one site showing them do it on an old EW block,technically that is a DOHC ZC head on a sohc D series block, but that doesnt matter because of the fact that EW motor goes in with the D16A1,A8,A9,ZC it shares the different head bolt pattern and mount pattern,all d-series from 88 and up do not share those characteristics. This would be helpfull for this guy if he had a first gen CRX, but since hes talking about modding his 93 DX motor he doesnt have an EW, nor will an EW swap in there.

    Like I said, when he ( former Honda mechanic/parts guy) gets off his ass and does his, I'll take some pics of the result, failure or not, but till then, you shouldn't spout off a small list of motors and expect your "facts" to be complete. Ever heard of the D16Z5, D13b, D15Z8, D14A2 D15Z3 D16Y3, these are all variation of D series, and since you didn't list them off, I can only assume you don't really know everything there is to know on the subject. I don't.

    It can be done, but its not a direct bolt on. I have seen pictures of it. One of the moderators, who was well respected, posted pics of his buddy that did it. I can't remember who the mod was because it was about 2 years ago. The conclusion was that it wasn't worth it.
