How can I give my b16y7 Vtec


Staff member
you can use most of the stuff from the y8 (96-98 or 99-00 ex civic depending on your obd2 version). What year is your car?

If everything is in good condition, using good parts, and good assembly work, putting a y8 head on a y7 block (with all of the accompanying equipment) is generally going to get you in the ballpark of a stock y8.

Short of turboing it you are not going to pull 200hp out of it.

I guess this is the part where the standard qualifying questions need to be asked

What do you want to use this car for
What are your goals
What is your budget
What is your technical ability
What country/state are you in
