You can use z6/y8 head casting with vtec-e roller rockers/cam - it will work. It just won't make as much power, as z6/y8.

But on reserch the cam is more curved and more lift i can see at low rvs less as only running on 12v but when on 16v at high revs wont it be better

IIRC vtec-e in. lift is 0.1mm less, than the low z6/y8 lobe, less duration, too. So until 3k, only one intake valve is open (to create swirl and increase air velocity) and it is using a cam lobe with less lift/duration. After 3k, it just hooks up the second set of valves, while with z6/y8, both intake valves are switching to even higher lobe. So the answer is - no, it's not better - not with the current cam. A custom cam can be made, but prior switching from 12 to 16V, said engine will make less power, compared to stock z6/y8. So if yo want all around power and you are not doing high rpm ONLY, race engine, don't bother with the vtec-e.

Race cam, for the vtec-e rocker arm assy. could make more power than z6/y8 ONLY after 5-6-7krpm, depending on how crazy the lobe is. Under 5k, it will be a complete dog.
And it's really not that hard to do vtec-e rocker arm assy/cam, on a z6/y8 head casting. Just swap it, there is no need to remove the head from the engine. I am using the opposite combination - d15z8(vtec-e) head casting, z6 rocker arm assembly/z6 aftermarket cam

I used this cam and rockers on a y8 head with vtec locked and well meh..

less friction on the lobes maybe gain longevity..
not worth the 2 hours it took to swap over unless the cam gets a regrind .

also you are sure its a z6 head .whats the casting ..?
