Default D15A1 block with D16Z6 head?

Will a D16Z6 ( ZC sohc) v-tec head fit on a D15A1 block? If so what modifications will need to be done to make it work? Machining, deleting a head stud, head gasket line up, ect ..

Yes it is doable.(The z6 head is on my d15a2 block) The stock head gasket oil passages line up but will have to punch some water passage holes over a tad. One head stud hole will have to be machined over (about 3 mm.)and a guide pin will have to be machined over(about 2mm.).The head stud hole will cut through an exhaust heat passage hole but since i will be deleting that (not needed for carb) i will just plug it. The stock d15a3 timing belt fits exactly the same as the stock setup.(Cam sprocket height does not change.)Besides from the machine work, everything else is stock d15a2 or 3 for carburation.(Except for electric fuel pump)

I am running a carb so i have no idea what wiring is needed for FI .(No extra wiring needed for carb except v-tec solenoid switch)

Hope this helps.

It would be much esier to swap a complete engine instead.
