    It's been some time since i did the a6/y8 swap but i believe i had to advance the gear 4.5 degrees.

    to use the y8 intake you will have to relocated your idle air temp sensor to the intake tract. the y8 mani doesn't have a spot for an iat.

    yes! you will run into major issues if you try and use the 91 distributor. you cannot use an obd0 dizzy with an obd1 ecu. you will need an obd1 distributor.

    the b7 distributor sounds right, but i'm not 100% on that.

    virtually any honda/acura 4 wire o2 sensor will work

    i've never heard of anyone revving the y8 that high so i cant tell you if the head would handle it. if you have a stock y8 cam then theres really no reason to rev beyond the stock limit anyway. so if you want to keep from floating a valve, i would advise not reving past the stock rev limit. also, if your bottom end is stock, you will also have to worry about it flying apart if you rev past the stock redline.

    I would use a D16Z6 dizzy to match the P28 ECU. But it won't match up with the head so you'll have to rig something up.

    Use the stock Y8 cam gear unless you're running a different cam. Then use a D16Y8 timing belt.

    Have you done a MPFI swap?

    You might not be able to use the Y8 injectors, either use A6 injectors with the resistor box or Z6 injectors without the box, but I'm not sure...you might be able to use the Y8 injectors.
