    There was no USDM ZC. The ZC is just that- the ZC. REAL ZC blocks have "ZC" stamped on them. Go look at my page. Any engine that's not stamped "ZC" is not really a ZC. Ignore anyone who tells you otherwise.

    If you do get the DOHC ZC pistons and toss them in your Y8, you'll get approximately 12.6:1 compression. Run a standard head gasket.

    :eek: When I said the USDM ZC, I was slacking.... I'm meant what I believe is the D16a1?(DOHC D-series?) and now I don't have the D16 block any more... just a D15b. So what American D-series pistons are the best for a D15by8? swap.(D15 mini me that is) Thanks.
