    I was looking online and I came across this article D16A6 to D16Z6 Conversion..."Mini-Me"
    the one thing that I'm wondering is even though I've got a d15b2 but I'm doing a mpfi swap that would give it the si dizzy and I've already got a z6 intake mani, wouldn't that kind of make it like the a6?

    thanks

    alright, so even if the head bolts up it doesn't mean that it would work because it wouldn't have enough compression?

    seeing that the z6 has a bore and stroke of 75 x 90 and the b2 has one of 75 x 84.5 how much would that change the compression because thats 5.5mm difference

    wow I was just looking on SolBlu's Helpful Del Sol Site and seeing that the d15b7 is pretty much the same as the b2, I used that as the block and it said that it should jack it up to 9.84:1 from 9.1:1 thats pretty good

    If you got a block such as a D16A6 it would go right to 10:1, the D16's have bigger bearing journals than the D15's too theres no downside.

    oh no the d16 defiantly has better support. But I did get some good news. I had to give me friend a ride home today but we stopped at his nephews house and he's get a 91 integra ls just sitting there, he also has an 89 integra that if I go a head gasket, a tune up, and a few little things for him, I can pretty much have the engine and tranny, and probably the axles, the bad news is that it's got a misfire in cylinder #1, but that could be anything

    I still may do a half assed mini me on this engine, but I'll get the 1.8 ls engine, tranny, and maybe the axles. Just for doing a head gasket, a tune up, and maybe a few other things.

    If I were you, I'd fix nephs' car, do a quick rebuild/re-ring to the LS, find some hotter cams and swap that in once you get all the parts together.
    From what's said, you would have enough torque to keep you smiling even after you get to work/school.

    the ls is actually a pretty simple swap..and will give you more hp than doing the minime..get the ls and let us know if you need any help.
