I just did this conversion today in my sedan.

I have seen several mis-informed posts about this conversion. i will bust these myths right now.

1: you have to use a d16y8 timing belt.
NO, you do NOT. check the part numbers, they ARE EXACTLY THE SAME BELT.

2: you have to use d16y8 head studs/bolts.
NO you do NOT. again, check the part numbers. SAME.

3: you have to use a d16y8 cam gear.
NO, you do NOT. y7 and y8 cam gears are the same.

I can also tell you, if you are doing an obd1 conversion, you will need an adjustable cam gear to fit your y8 head. The ignition timing is just a little off from obd1 to obd2, and you'll run rich. My car is obd1 using a p28. trust me I know.

If anyone has any questions, PM me or whatever. I did a y7/y8 swap in my sedan AND an auto to manual swap in the same car. I put 90 miles a day on this car... so my work speaks for itself.

I really wonder WTF you have been reading if you think those are common myths . . .

Most of the Y-series stuff interchanges without issue. There ARE issues when you mini-me older D15 and D16 blocks with a Y-series head but . . . holy crap! That stuff has been worked out years ago.

mythical myths are mythical.
it occurs to me that some people believe the world is flat.
maybe we should straighten them out too.
