    Ok heres the scoop... i got a complete z6 head from my brother for free but heres the catch... its completely disassembled except the valves and springs can any one give me a write up or something on assembling a head. my brother told me all parts are there to build it including brand new vtec solenoid i just cannot figure out how to put it together. my all data account will not give me a walk through this sux:(

    just take it to a machine shop, you don't have a spring compressor. plus you can get it ported and hot tanked.

    I think what he's saying is that the rocker assembly is in pieces also.. A haynes manual shows you a diagram of how to put the rocker assembly together..

    my plans for my sedan are to gut it due to interior being garbage anyway paint it electron blue pearl (99-00 SI blue if u didnt know)"thank god i have a rust free body", doing a FULL skunk2 suspension set up, rota wheels, do DA brake system work on EF? if so Are the rotors any bigger? oh yea another thing im ordering next paycheck is a rebuilt L3 SI trans with limited slip that should make things fun hehe. i will start posting pics of the whole build as soon as i get my digital camera back from getting fixed. i cant wait till i get it all.

    if your using a z6 head then you get the z6 timing belt..and a z6 head gasket kit..
    yes the rear disk from the da will work..you NEED to get the ebrake cable with the setup though..and you should get the 40/40 prop valve from it..
    as for a cam you can use stock or go aftermarket..
    zex,crower.etc...
    also if you can get ur hands on one use an auto y8 intake mani..it is the best flowing mani and the auto will plug right in.
