Default Wanting to do a mini me swap on my '89 Crx Si?

I have a '89 Crx SI with a 1.6L. wanting to do a mini me swap because its pretty cheap. I've looked and there's 2 different 1.6 Vtec engines. the D16Z6 and the D16Y8. Whats the difference and which one would i be better off using?

I would generally suggest the D16z6 head. This of course will depend on the block you are using but if it is the stock block then the z6 is the best. Its important that you have the Multi Port injection so if you have the stock motor you should be fine. Make sure to review some tech threads on the process and get some ideas to maximize the life of the modified motor. Let me know if you need any additional help.

Good Luck

I have done this swap before. The z6 head has better ports and generally flows a tad better than the y8. The y8 head has square combustion chambers and a different cam profile, so it creates more compression. I used the y8 head and could shrug off LS swapped civics. It was nice. Just make sure you have the correct timing belt and distributor for either head you use. Your intake mani and exh mani will fit both heads.
