D15B7 Frankestein with D16Z6 Head What do I need??


Recommended Posts

Hi, I own a 94 Civic DX 4-Door with the D15B7 I recently blew the Head Gasket and i think i warped the Head. It lost alot of coolant and runs like crap because my Thermostat Housing is damaged.

Im buyin a D16Z6 Head and i want to know what do i need to complete the Head Swap??

Do i need the D16Z6 Head Gasket Kit ??

D16Z6 Water Pump or can i use a D15B7 Water pump??

Do i have to use the D16Z6 Vtec Distributor ??

Or anything i need to have it running well?? !!!

you need a P28(Si) ecu. the Z6 head and intake manny , distributor , Z6 head gasket , new timing belt. once you get the head off , youl see an oil jet in a hole in the middle of the block. use a bolt or screw to pull it out of the block. place your Z6 head gasket on , than head on , bolt it down. set your timing. throw your Z6 dizzy on. plug your P28 in. now youl need to wire vtec , heres the pinout:

the D06 spot needs to be pinned. run it through the firewall , goes to the vtec pressure switch , the second wire coming out of the pressure switch simply needs to go to ground.


the A04 spot needs to be pinned , run it through the firewall , goes to the vtec solenoid , one wire only.


thats about it dude , lol.
