if you have a d16z6 engine your in good shape all ready.
a mini me would be like swapping a better head onto the d16 block but you already have the head that people would swap with. comprende? :)

i thought you said you already have a d16z6 with a d16y8 head?
you have a perfectly good engine. a mini me wuold be like having a non v-tec d-series and then swapping on a v-tec head to increase your power. You have a v-tec head and a good one at that. Build on what you have right now. it's perfect

the y8 head has a smaller combustion chamber which would increase your compression slighty but ultimately the z6 has a better design for making power whereas the y8 head is more geared towards economy

after heavy modification your z6 head will take you farther than the y8 one. It has a higher power ceiling.

Yipes!! damn you are lucky not any of the regulars on here got to this thread. They would have ripped into this like wolves. Do a search for "mini me" and then you will understand why a mini-me is done. You already have the vtec head so you are all good. "Mini-me" is when you have a non-vtec bottom end and put a vtec head on it. The vtec head is either off the d16z6 (which you already have) or off the d16y8 (very similiar sohc head as the d16z6) Hope this helps dude.
