    96 was a D16Y8
    the D16Z6 was only from 92-95

    but anyway you can use either the D16Z6 head gasket or the D16Y8 one
    the D16Y8 one is about half as thick and will yeild a higher compression ratio

    the y8 gasket will raise your compression to 10.1:1 but for some reason they are more likely to blow then the z6 gasket, so its a question of compression or reliability. i heard numorous complaints of y8 gaskets starting to leak on the swap.
