    No I'm not quiting that has nothing to do with it. Well I got some news I just picked up a d16y8 so I have a cluster of parts and not sure best direction to run with. Being I just got the y8 best choice is to scrap b8. I don't want to sound like a noob. I can't seem to find any info really on which head is better z6 or y8. or is it better to just keep the y8 complete? and does anyone know of a good way to get rid of that oil issue?

    the Y8 is a very decent engine as it sits
    being that you have a complete one i would stick with that
    if it needs to be rebuilt then you can do some upgrades while you are at it... but if it is fine then id just drop that in and drive it

    dont let these dickbags beat you up over your posting... it was not that bad... a little punctuation would have gone a long way, but at least you typed it all out and didnt use some form of interweb hood slang garbage like half of the tards on here

    welcome to the site and i hope that you will find it useful... people tend to open up and calm the hell down a bit when you become more of a "regular"

    haha thank you. I was going to tear it down and build it before I put it in. You never know where they have been. am I going to need the axles for it or will the ones on my cx work fine? It's out of a 2000 ex if I remember right. and I'll need the obd1 to obd2 harness also correct?

    IIRC, cx axels are different... I remember bill had issues on his car with the ls axels if i remember correctly. That was almost 10 years ago now, so i may be wrong.

    I understand it would be hard to remember 10 years ago, but do you remember what kind of issues there was
