Hey guys. I have a pretty simple question. Can I replace my head gasket and head bolts on my 1998 d15b 3 stage v-tec with a d16y8 head gasket set? I'd rather not spend $100 shipping a replacement set over seas. From what I understand, the newer obd2 engines have slightly longer head bolts. I need a definitive answer.

Yes you can use the d16y8 head gasket, easiest thing to do would be reuse your headbolts. The other gaskets you'll have to research but I think the only gasket you won't be able to use will be the vtec solenoid gasket if it comes with it.

Look online and see exactly what the difference in length is.

If its only a few millimeters off, you will be fine.
