    You'll more than likely be working with the Y8 head. Nice and clean install. You'll find everything you need in the reference section.

    Post up your questions in the forums dedicated to your Chassis code, and you will get answers. Those forums don't move as quickly as the General forums, but they still move quickly.

    Welcome aboard !

    D17s are different I believe(oil/coolant holes don't line up). Go for a straight Y8 or Z6 swap.

    head from a D17A2 and the rest should be pretty much the same as an older D series mini-me setup
