    I'm planning to swap a ex vtec head with my 96' D16Y7 head and was wondering what difference it would make and would it be worth it?

    its worth doing, its an inexpensive way to get some additional horsepower out of a d-series motor.

    just make sure you wire vtec correctly and use the correct ecu.

    do it- <$400 for 30 horse is worth it in my book.
    search this site- we have a few threads about mini me's already

    I just got a couple offers for the vtec head... one of them is off a 95 civic. The guy says it should work, but I heard you should only swap with the same year or higher?... :huh:

    the y8 head offers a better queche area and thus mroe compression. if you can pick up a 96+ ex head, i say get that instead

    Actually, the reply he got was much like yours. The rest was just an offshoot discussion.

    i thought most of that was from the Y8 gasket being half as thick as the Z6 one ????

    the Y8 has a square combustion chamber, as opposed to the z6 (and 99% of the other honda motors) which gives it more queche area which = .2 CR and stuff :)
