My brother just spent a fortune rebuilding his D16 DOHC non-vtec. Well, he has never done that before, and after a few months, it just threw a rod.

I want to know if he can use his current head and use a B16 or B18 block. It would also need to bolt to his tranny.

it is not a vtec, it is DOHC, and it is in a 89 integra which I believe is a D16.

I just need to know if I can use his old head and ECU with a B16 block.

Hmmm, you either have a D16A1 or D16A3. But, you can not change parts between different engine series.

I am in utah.

I think we are just going to put a JDM B18B, then later slap a vtec head on it.

No such thing as a DOHC D series.

No, B and D heads/blocks do not match.

Oh. Pooey. D16A1 pistons in a D16Y8 = 12.5:1 cr. I'm going to read up on those engines now.
