Well when a person is asking a properly formated and logical question and you choose to post with a illrelivant comment such as above, how do you expect him to respond? I searched and did not find the answer per say. I found posts on using those blocks but none on which is the best in reference to torque, horsepower or longevity. Futhermore apologies if it insulted you.
boostdeliquent, thank you for the response. Thats the one I felt was a good choice as its a SI model engine and is said to be somewhat torquefull on lower to mid rpm range. I heard of someone using a y7 for rumored improved fuel economy, but that just sounds like it needs to be proven on paper. D17 would have some advantages being a larger displacement, but is referred to as the bastard-child d-series for complexities involved with the motor in general.
i never told you to search, it looked to me as if you made another thread, just ignore what i said if you cant reply with something besides a childish post
oh and if you dont make a poll in a thread pm a mod and they can fix it for you
dont just make another one
with what you have listed i would use an a6 block, if your looking for vtec the y7 head isnt vtec, you would want a z6 or a y8 head
if your going for na or boost let us know, comp calculations are different for each block/head combo and some are high comp and some are lower depending on some other variables
its kind of hard to give you a definite answer unless we know if your going to be boosting or not
I really didn't post twice, I guess I did something wrong when making my original post. N/A motor. I was referring to using the y7 block, not head. I currently have a z6 head. I have been using the compression calculator page for compression ratios. I just wanted to know what block is best to use for torque, horsepower or longevity.
So my motor is built and already in the car with the turbo kit installed my question is can I install the cam without degreeing it and have my tuner advance or retard accordingly? Yes I did search but didn't find a clear answer
I have a 1990 crx si with the original d16a6. I wont to build the original motor. The head has had a value job and has been shaved. Machine shop has stated that the block needs to be bored out at least .10000. What is the best bore to go with being I have to bore it? And what pistons and rods...
Am building a 96 civic coupe to run on dirt track. Have a couple of engines i can build but don't know what to build? Have a d16y7, d16y5, and some parts for a d16y8. Looking for opinions on building a engine for this civic that would help with mid range power? Rules says "stock" but was looking...
Yesterday I talked to Geoff from colt cams and he mentioned that there are actually two d16a6 cams. He said the only way to identify which core I have would be to install it in my engine and check the timing.
Is this true? I’ve never heard of two different a6 cams.
