This is the first time I'm doing a head gasket job on my D16Z6, so apologies in advance for any newb questions. I took off my head and took it to a local machine shop to check for flatness and resurface. Without taking a straightedge to it first, the machinist said that it's definitely warped...
are there any parts of the z6/y8 heads that aren’t interchangeable? cams (with matching gear of course), springs, valves, etc. ik some of this has been covered already but i’ve never found a definitive answer. thanks
I have two d16z6 cylinderheads, at least that is what what i have been told.
But i noticed one difference. One head has hole&canal and one hasn't.
- here's link to images since i cant upload it myself.
Last pic shows that canal.
Can u recognize if these are d16z6 heads...

so i replaced the head unit in an 89 honda. its got power from red (12.0V) and yellow (1.5V) and continuity to ground (black). but the head unit does not show any signs of life. no lights, wont take a CD. i'm pretty sure its defective its a Sony but crap happens.
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.
I'm already running a p28 so that's not a problem, before I put in the head
I'm going to give it all the bells and whistles, no cost spared the only problem is,
I'm in the middle of building a fj custom rods and vitara z6. My goal is for 350 to 400hp. I'm wondering is it worth the extra 100 and 6 bucks a guide to install the new guides or are the stock valve guides good enough to take the heat of my hp goals.
Also the motor I'm rebuilding was from an...
So I was pulling a d16 and noticed a hole in top of the oil pan. I thought, no big deal at least the Rod didn't go through the block.

When I install old head onto machine...

Just figured id get everyones opinion on the topic of whether to port and polish a head or just make everything smooth being a noob to pnp work?
R the gains noticable by just making the ports smooth?
Is it easy to mess up the flow when being a noob to pnp work?
Is it beneficial to just open...

I have a 95 Civic Sedan with a D15B7. I have had some overheating problems and have concluded that it is the head gasket causing it. (exhaust in the radiator, disappearing coolant) So I tore it down over the weekend and sure enough, the head gasket was in bad shape, and looked to be leaking into...
