I am going to build and boost my 2nd owner civic vx. What I would like to do is keep the d15z1 bottom end and put a d16z6 head on it. I will want to do a mild boost for fun but something reliable for a dd. I love this old car and all its character. I am going to go for a mild engine build. I don`t mind to do forged parts. I understand the rods are the weak link.

Should I buy forged 137mm rods for a d15b? What should I use for pistons with the z6 head?
Also I have a lot of miles. What parts of the engine should I rebuild and replace other than water pump, timing belt, etc.

Does it need a cam....valves....etc? Just looking for good advice on my project.
