This is what I plan to do to my Civic in the near future.

MINI ME SWAP
- D16Y8 Cylinder head from 96-98 SOHC Vtec EX Manual
- Port-matched D16Y8 Intake manifold
- ECU (P28 or P2P)
- OEM Y8 Head Gasket
- Gates Blue timing belt
- New water pump
- Intake manifold gasket
- Wire O2 sensor for EX O2

I don't have all the specifics on this yet. Will have to talk to the transmission gods on this one.

MORE AFTER I FIGURE OUT WHERE TO GO WITH THE WHOLE BUILD.

I plan to purchase a D16Z6 engine and rebuild it. My buddy Corey knows quite a bit about Hondas and he will be assisting me on this. These are my thoughts so far-

D16Z6 block cleaned, degreased and bored to 75.5mm
Vitara 75.5mm coated pistons and Custom length rods
King race bearings
Ported Y8 head, 3 angle VJ, .5mm oversize valves.
ZEX cam
ARP studs and fasteners
AEM adjustable cam gear

Deck the block while it is out. Make sure the shop mills the block and head and not bounce them on a belt surfacer.

Also ask how they install the OS valves, if the seats are just cut then you will get little to no gain on air flow

Skip the oversized valves they are not needed. Look into back cutting valves.

The shop will cut the heads and valves to match. They also are going to mill the block and head on a CNC machine. I forgot to add that they will also deck/hone/align as well as hot tank the block at no additional cost over the cost to bore it.

Back-cutting the valves? I am not familiar with this process?

Do you really need multiple threads for all your plans? Start a build thread.
