    I'm working on rebuilding a d16y8 and need some advice on cylinder specs. I think I already have the answer to this, but looking for confirmation or opinions. I'm using a 2mm head gasket and 9.0:1 CP Carillo pistons, which together should bring the compression down to around 8.3:1 based on...

    I'm fairly new to the Honda game and I'm working on my boosted ZC right now I plan on doing the mini swap and putting in a Vtec head.
