    I have a VX with bent valves, my friend is giving me his DX head. Can i run the DX head on my D15Z motor? Keep in mind that the D15Z HX civic is a VTEC-E motor and the DX is not.

    Here are the specs on both motors......

    D15B7 92-95 CIVIC DX/LX 1493CC 102HP@5900 95FTLB@5000
    4CYL, 16 VALVE REDLINE:6800
    SOHC

    D15Z1 92-95 CIVIC VX 1493CC 92HP@5500 97FTLB@4500
    4CYL, 16 VALVE REDLINE:7000
    SOHC VTEC-E

    yea you can do it, I think you'll need a new ecu though, and if the dx head is obd1 you gotta swap the distributor

    I think i'm a give it a shot and keep ya'll updated. The only thing i will use is the DX head and keep everything else as is, i will reuse the VX manifold. This way, all sensors will remain the same, except the "minus" vtec selenoid on the head.
