This site has allowed me to increase my knowledge on my build. I have a 1995 Honda civic DX EG. It has a bare d15b7 in it at the moment. I, currently, have a d16y8 head being serviced that I will be installing. I've purchased a orbital oil pump, arp head studs, a d16z6 Gates timing belt, new water pump (d15) all new gaskets, front and rear main seals, a 225lph Walburo fuel pump, and an AEM Tru timing cam gear. I am aiming for a modest 250-300 hp boosted build. Seeing that I cant post to/for looking to buy yet I'll reach out for insight on my aim here. I'm also excited to install the SI trans I got for DIRT CHEAP! My only few issues are finding the correct rods and pistons to upgrade to. I have looked and researched and asked questions on Honda-tech but I've come up empty handed. Are D16a2 rods comparable? Vitara pistons seem to be my go to. Second issue is I have no idea how to get the SINGLE D16Y8 head stud. I have a kit # and I hope that is enough to have one sent directly from ARP. Thank you all for your time and assistance in my journey. Many of you will say, "get a D16Z6 block." Or "Buy a B series." I'm trying to buy as little possible ?. Any insight is appreciated. THANK YOU D SERIES FAMILY!
