    I have an 89 dx with a dohc zc and I just bought an 89 si that some guy had and was going to pull the motor apart and keep the rods and pistons but I was wondering if I should keep the valves too but I dont know if theyll fit

    ok lets try this again I have a d16a6 engine that was not running (reason unknown) and was going to keep the rods and pistons cuz I know that they fit my dohc zc but Im not sure if the valves from the d16 fit the zc.

    zc is a good motor thats what i have, but then again i prefer auto x and vtec is kinda useless in my opinion, build whatever motor that is going to benefit your driving style.

    well the guy I got it from had the hood and valve cover off for about a year and I live in florida so it was full of water so it really is a waste of time I guess

    So? the shortblock should be good. And the head casting is Aluminum, so I'm sure it could be saved. New valvetrain/hot tank the head and you're good to roll.

    I have a d15b8 that im putting in the si body and I was thinking of rebuilding the a6 head to put on that block. I know why not keep the a6 its bigger but the a6 has 200000 miles on it and the b8 has 60000 and for some reason I like to beat 2.0 and 1.8 with 1.5 and 1.6

    I think the b8 has an 8 valve head but the one I have I got in my dx when I bought it and it has a 16 valve head on it already 90 si to be exact. also it was running great when I pulled it out so I dont see a reason to waste it and now I have an si tranny to go with it so with a good cam and valve jod ill have a decent single cam
