    I bought a z6 head from someone and upon disassembly there are cracks around the bolt holes for 2 of 5 valve cover bolts. The cracks are less than 1cm long. My question is would the rocker assembly still be safe to use in a high comp mini me build. Cheers Zingle

    Since high school I’ve always wanted a little Honda since most my friends had 90s era Hondas growing up. I’ve driven quite a few from ef with sohc vtec to a GSR dohc vtec. I had some extra cash and decided I wanted a little project car and found something for a great price. I picked up a 98...

    I have a ongoing issue I hope someone can help with. Built Vitara Z6. I'm having a timing issue. So I line up the crank with the white single slash and the corresponding marks on the cam gear. So in theory this should be correct. But I'm still only at 11* of timing. Even with the dizzy maxed I...

    Hi guys, I'm a new member to D-series and I need help with suggestions or recommendations on parts I've already picked out for a future D16Z6 build. I have never built a car before and plan to build my first Honda very soon. Of course all of my parts are from eBay and I need people who build...

    Hello everyone, I have done my rebuild of the d16z6 engine that sits in my civic wagon. I did the proper break-in period. But, what I thought is that I had CEL1 code of o2 sensor, and that my tuner will just turn that off. I got to the dyno yesterday, did the pulls, and the car would just...

    I have a turbo honda that I am currently working on, D16Z6. I recently put a 255 fuel pump. Loaded hondata with a basemap. The car was running well for a couple min, then I began revving it to see it was making any boost. Then it started exploding, no boost though. After a few revs, the car...

    Ok guys, so I am in a predicament. I'm swapping a d16z6 into my 74 Mini Cooper, and its just about time to put the engine in the car. However, once the engine is in the car, I don't want to have to take it out again for a long time. That being said, when I had the car running before, the engine...
