    ok so i got an si cam shaft/ gear from a junker. i want to swap it into my 90 dx(d15b2 i belive?) i need to know what other things i may need to make it work, like do i need the d16 timing belt? will i have to reset the lash on my valves? i got the gear and the shaft, so what things will i have to re set and how do i adjust the timing, do i move the gear on the shaft, the belt on the teeth, or what? and, will the bearings fit into the stock races without binding?

    actually, believe it or not, I've pulled 2 motors out of junker cars to help my buddies, and its usually 3 of us using brute force to carry it, granted it was just a z6 and then an b18a1. can you find a different a6? if you can, then go get that one if your worried about the valve cover being off. Does it still have a hood? even if the valve cover's been gone a while, if it has a hood and the hood's been down it should be fine.

    thanks for the suggestions i appreciate them. im just kind of excited about building up my crappy little d15b2 using d16a6 parts. itll probably end up dying a gruesome death anyways, and ill decide what to drop in then.

    No!
    D-series.org

    The guys there put a6 cams in all kinds of 1.5L engines. Look in the engine building and N/A forums. Works like a charm
