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.
