Use a Y8 head gasket, timing belt or head studs I'm not sure but you will have to add the A6 oil restrictor to the block, you can use any D16 rod you like.

The rods are a matter of personal preference and opinion. For the headgasket use the metal Y8. As for the timing belt, you should be able to use the y7 timing belt since the deck height of the a6 and y7 is the same. As for the head studs, I'm pretty sure you'll need to use the A6 studs.

Ya, IIRC all the 1.6 rods are pretty much the same specs so any TT rods should work. As for the oil restrictor, since you're using a notec block and notec head, I don't think it's necessary.

The Y7 is more like a VTEC motor without VTEC than a traditional noTEC motor. The Y7 has the restrictor built in like a VTEC head, you'll end up with too much oil in the head without one.
