    If I just want to put in the same D16Y8 motor back into my civic, can I buy a D16Y7 engine and do the mini me swap ? Will this make it about the same engine ? What is all needed to be done to do a mini me swap ? I can buy a D16Y7 for $400 and a D16Y8 for $1000. any help will be appreciated.

    a complete mini Me set up should cost you under 500, that is with head, water pump, ecu, head gasket, timing belt and.... i am missing something, someone help me out. Afipunk bought the parts for this and i think he said he could of had all the parts for 488 (some how that # comes to mind) but ended up buying some other perfromance stuff and totaled like 900.

    The local junk yards are selling the D16Y8 engines for a grand, don't ask me but thats what they are going for. I have all the parts from my D16Y8 for the mini me swap so my question is will the Y7 with the mini me swap be the same engine ? And I think I have all the parts, can I do the mini me swap with the parts from my Y8 ?
