    Hey, I got a 97 cx and i was planning on making a mini me since d16y7 engine isnt fast enough for me. there's a guy near my area that has a complete y8 head for sale with a d15b intake manifold with throttle body, injectors and fuel rail, the whole thing for only 250$. should i trust a used d16y8 head or i should buy a rebuild one ? also, is a d15b intake manifold as good as a d16y8 ? that sounds like a good deal to me, what do you guys think ?

    Nope. You can buy one already rebuilt for a little more than that. New valves, valve seals, retainers. I'll sell you my z6 head for $150 plus shipping. I have no need for it. I just did a B16 swap.

    Which D15 manifold is it, there are several. As far as the deal goes, full non rebuilt heads can be had for around 100 and complete Y8 manifolds can be had for 70. Just remember that you need the IACV, throttle body, injectors, and fuel rail.
