I've searched for a mini me swaps and found great info but ive run into a problem. All the mini me swaps I read are about just 96-98 y8's onto 96-98 y7's. The problem im having is looking for information about putting a 99 ex head on a 96 y7 bottom end. I know the mini me will work but i need to know if i can re-use my y7 distributor. I dont have a y8 dizzy thats from 96-98 and i hear the 96 is 9 wire and the 99 is 8 wire or something like that

so to sum it up..

can a 1996 y7 distributor work on a 99 y8 head?

I Found this, Hope it Helps:

All 88-00 D-Series distributors are interchangeable with the exception of the Z6, Z1, and D15B

yes it will work. the Z6 was kind of the "bastard" child with a totally different bolt pattern, just use the distributor that was for your year model car on the newer head and everything should be good.

thanks bro, i was reading and all i could find was on the 1.5s and some 1.6s like the b7 or something that the z6 wouldnt fit. but i couldnt find any y7/y8 info.
