    Ok, here is the speel about what I have currently done engine wise. I have rebuilt my D16a6 block with all new:
    -OEM pistons
    -OEM wrist pins
    -OEM gasket set
    -OEM oil pan, because my old one had a lot of larger pin-holes in it!
    -OEM thrust washers
    -NASCAR true-circle piston rings
    -Clevite main/rod bearings
    -Royal Purple synthetic engine rebuild lube, I will be using synthetic engine oil (I am not sure on which company though), and I know this will be really expensive but I plan to keep this engine top notch for racing.

    FUTURE PLANS FOR D16a6 BLOCK:
    -ARP mixed (D16a6/D16y8) head stud kit
    -OEM 3-ply D16y8 head gasket

    Now, onto the D16y8 cylinder head. I had the head somewhat OEM rebuilt, by myself, with new parts such as:
    -OEM valve stem seals
    -OEM (VTEC) solenoid seal
    -VISION 5-way adjustable cam gear
    LEFT UN-DONE:
    -Valve stems
    -Valve seats
    -Valve spring retainers
    -Camshaft

    *The following information refers to the cylinder head COMPLETELY apart*

    I am going to be doing a racing application. My plans are as follows:
    -Crower "stage 2" camshaft
    -(not sure what brand, please help fill this spot!) "stage 2" valve keepers
    -(not sure what brand, please help fill this spot!) "stage 2" valve retainers
    -(not sure what brand, please help fill this spot!) "stage 2" valve springs
    -(not sure what brand, please help fill this spot!) "stage 2" valve stems, if needed
    -Cast iron turbo, d-series, exhaust manifold
    -Port and polish, then flow benched
    -Skunk2 intake manifold with B-series 70mm throttle body

    That is pretty much it for my speel.
