    hey guys, i've been searching online and haven't found a real answer to an easy question......

    ARE ALL D-SERIES EXHAUST MANIFOLD/HEADERS INTERCHANGABLE?

    and.....what will fit a D16y8?

    i'm not sure how but i got a crack that goes all around 1 (far left) of the header...and it's an oem stock header. and i know better than to spray water on a hot motor....any input would be great or if any of you are selling 1...stock or aftermarket but must be street legal; however i don't plan on spending over $60 on it as it is a daily driver and i just need something to stop my car from leaking air from the header...thanks.

    I'm not 100% positive but I think the D16a1 might be different from the others...

    i believe the dohc uses an adaptor plate..but not 100% pos.

    but any d16,d15 header will work

    The ports are slightly offset on the DOHC D's like so:

    Otherwise than that, it will work.

    Why does it matter if the ZC header will fit, he has a y8. Go to ebay and buy a header for your car, that is the only way your going to get one for <$60.
