    i'm planning on rebuilding a d16a6 engine and was wondering what kind of an engine block I should use. what blocks are compatible with the build someone said they have a d15b7 that they're selling is that a good block or not.

    What's wrong with you current block that a rebuild won't fix?

    If you are gonna rebuild, you might as well squeeze some extra power out using stock D16 parts. For Example, it is said that the D16Y8 (EJ8 - '96 - '00 Civic EX) VTEC head has hotter cams than other different SOHC VTEC heads.

    Also, I do Believe that the Y8 Intake manifold is said to be the best flowing one out of all the D's.

    Basically you wanna get as many Y8 parts as you can lol. I'm not sure if the Exhaust manifolds are any different. however I know the Intake mani's are different on a lot of different D's.

    Also, just a note. if you do run a Y8 head, you'll need an OBDII ECU and Harness.

    I wasnt so sure if it was the cam that made the Y8 head better. I've been told its supposedly hotter. but I wasnt sure.

    heh, D-Series Type-R lol.
