    Hi, I have a pretty phantom problem appearing with my turbo'd D16. Let's start from the setup: - Fully build D16 block (eagle rods, wiseco pistons, block guard, headstuds, etc.) - stock Z6 head (not from D16Z6, but from european D15Z6 VTEC-E). This has the same casting as D16Y8 head, but...

But now I have purchased a new (to me anyways) 1991 Honda Civic Hatchback. The car shifts great, runs great, minimal rust and I got it for a very cheap price from a guy I...
