    Is there a way to do a head swap as to mount a D16 head on a D15Z6 engine? :worthy:

    I think your confused. You probably mean D16Z6, which has a D16 head, the best d series head, so, yes?

    There is no D15Z6, it's a D16Z6 which already has vtec, or a D15Z1--either case, both of them have vtec, so I'm not sure what you are asking.

    If you have a 5th gen, most likely you have a d15b7. You can get the z6 head and swap it, get the ECU, wire up vtec and have a mini-me.

    BTW.. y8 head/IM is the best d-series head. Smaller Combustion chambers and the IM is called the "itr IM of the d-series".

    Search for mini-me and you will get a LOT of threads on it.

    Yea, almost all d-series heads and blocks are interchangeable.

    he's right, he does have a d15z6. it's not listed in the ref. section, but it does exist. it came in 6th gen edm civic iLS's i believe. as for the question, there should be no problem swapping on a d16 head, although it probably won't yeild too high of results... if any. they're both sohc vtec heads. i don't know much about that engine, but i'm just assuming it's very similar to the d16z6 here in the states, the only difference might be the larger displacement of the d16.

    For sure I'll gain some torque.
    Its also much cheaper than a complete swap.
    also the engine serial numbers are not on the head so its cheaper to find some bargain engine on flee market.
    Remember guys I live in Poland :)

    swapping the head is a waste of time if you ask me.

    consider swapping the cam and the computer. i bet thats most of the difference.
