if you really searched you would have noticed that there is like 7 parts that most every mini me uses.

you will need the same parts for any mini me setup. so both of these right ups will work for you
FAQ: D15 SOHC VTEC Mini-Me : Massive Write-Up (56k Goodbye) - Honda-Tech
[FAQ] D16Y7 / Y8 MINI-ME WRITE-UP.... WITH PICS (56k, maybe not) - Honda-Tech

vtec- Head
non vtec- Block
Ecu- for the head your using
Distributor- for the head your using
Intake Manifold- for the head your using
Headgasket and timing belt- for which ever head you choose to use
OBD1 Injectors, if converting...

i think so, you would have to use a dpfi ecu and get it chipped and converted into a vtec ecu(not to sure about this i just heard of it) and once it was chipped you could get it tuned because the stock maps will probably be no good for the motor you just built.

way easier to just use a D16Z6 Head, Dizzy, Ecu, Intake manifold, throtel body and fuel rail

just find a complete z6 head

use this^^ to figure some things out about comp and what head would be the best for you and if your going to rebuild the bottom end this will help with your piston choise

yeah it should be a few wires for MPFI and then 2 for vtec to work.(1 for vtec solenoid and 1 for oil pressure sensor)

if your unsure of what your doing you can just convert your car to MPFI befor you do the head swap so its just one thing at a time and if you run in to problems it will be easier to figure out where yoou went wrong. once you get MPFI working then do the head swap you seem pretty new at this its probably your best way of doing it

Intake Manifold- for the head your using
Headgasket and timing belt- for which ever head you choose to use
OBD1 Injectors, if converting...
Head studs for the head you use is also nessasary. Contact arp , describe what you are doing, and order your studs. Studs are better than bolts any fay of the week.

Im sure, but why would you want to do that if the other intake and fuel delivery system is superior?

Yes, but using the factory harness for that particular head is not only easier, but more reliable. Unless your a wiring wizard.

The bolt patterns are the same. So yes.

I would assume not. The factory ecu is set up for two injectors. You could add two more, by splicing the wires.. but your injector output would be half of what it should be. So your injectors will be flowing half of what they should. This is in no way fact, because I haven't searched it. Im just using my own personal knowledge of ohm's and electrical resistance to form a non-factual conclusion.

My personal opinion..
Get a complete z6 head including throttle body, injectors, all sensors and intake manifold.
Get the complete z6 wiring harness.
z6 stock ecu (p28. ), chip it. Load up a stock basemap. Crome comes with a stock z6 map, so downloading the program and uploading the bin file is all you have to do.
Arp headstuds for better reliability.
headgasket. Preferably a mls one.
Get an adjustable cam gear, so you can set the mechanical timing perfectly.
Cool air intake.
Take car to a tuner, or tune it yourself after you do some research.

This isn't nessasary, but I recommend it..
have your head completely cleaned, and have all seals replaced.
deck it for flatness.
Have the intake ports worked over so all casting bumps and marks are removed.
Do the same to exhaust, but polish it.
Polish combustion chambers.
Call up delta, and get a 272 regrind on your cam.

That all must be done before head is installed for the first time. So you only have to tune it once.

Personal opinions, nothing more.
goodluck on your build buddy.

no you cant use the DPFI ecu when converted to MPFI. You need the PM6 ECU and a Si (A6) distributor as well
