hello, i have a d15b7 engine in a 92 civic lx if that matters, i was thinking about doing a full ls swap, but that takes a lot of time and $ whihc i do not have... then i hear about minime swaps which just involves a head swap i believe. iread around some forums and decided to go with a z6 head. but im not sure as i am fairly new to all of this stuff..... i have a few questions which hopefully u can answer.....

1. would u recommend this head swap for a daily driver?
2. how much would the whole swap cost estimated.
3. do i have to change any major internals?
4. do i have to change any other parts such as timing belt or can i keep the same belt that comes with the head and will it be ocmpatible with the d15b7 block
5. should i go purchase the head near the junkyard near me??? also what should i make sure they include with the head swap?
6. what is the situation with the ecu... witch ecu will i have 2 use??

i would grreatly Appreciate asnwers to these questions.
i thank you in advancee

you will need the ecu for the head that you are using and that compression is not real good for boost. also the z6 mini me swap will be ok for a dd. good luck.

1. if you want to do a mini me then the z6 head is a good one also may think about a y8
2. it all depends on how much you pay for the head
3. never did a mini me but pretty sure you don't have to change the internals unless you plan on going turbo
4. not sure on this one sorry
5. if you can find a descent one at a junk yard if not wait until you post enough to purchase stuff on this forum..when ever your noob status runs out
6.i would recomend a p28 and have someone like lsturbohatch10 chip it for you.http://www.hondaworkshop.com/engines.php?postid=47 here is some of his info
