Can you take the rocker arms out of a y8 head and put them in a y5 head to make it work like a y8 head?

I have a z6 head and i can get a y8 head. I want to convert my hx to a 5 spd because it needs a tranny and if i contvert the y5 to a y8 head i can use a p2p

Your gonna need more then just a y8 rocker assmbly and a p2p to make your car run like a y8. The y8 uses a 4 wire o2 sensor the y5 uses a wideband 5 wire o2 sensor so you hav to get the ex harness unless you figure out how to splice the proper connector on. You need a y8 intake manifold 96-98 5spd preferably. The y5 has a egr on the intake the y8 doesnt.
so basically to start you off you need to be on the lookout for a y8 intake mani,p2p,ex harness theres more down the road but baby steps.

why go through all the trouble if you could just do a motor swap? a Y8 swap should not cost any more than 300.00 with a trans
i should be able to do the whole 5 spd swap and make it run like a y8 for around $250 instead of spending $300 on a y8 swap, then i still need pedals, master cylinder and clutch line.
