    I have a D16Z6 head that I want to put on a D16Y8 motor I just purchased. I figured it would be a direct fit but it's not. Apparently, the head bolts are different though. Has anyone performed this swap, and if so any help would be greatly appreciated!! Any other things I may run into would be helpful as well!

    Thanks much and I do really do appreciate it!

    The headbolts are different lengths. I put a z6 head on a y7 block. A few of the bolts needed for a z6 are 140mm whereas a y7 uses a 120mm in that location. Arp makes a headstud kit for my application, check to see if they make one for you.
