Default D16 head on D15 Block

The title is pretty much the question at hand

will a d16 vrec head fit on a d15 block with no modification or do i need to run the vtec oil lines like on the B series dohc motors?

any and all info about this will help greatly.

Thanks for helping out.

it fits. its called a minime. no oil lines. take out the oiler in the block when you put the head on and you need to use the d16 timing belt, dizzy and all its atachments. you should get a z6 or y8 intake mani for it. iv never heard of vrec....

700 can get you a gsr block or ls motor and tranny in some places.
but on the block in the dowel pin areas there is a thingy pressed in a hole. take it out, it gets oil to the top now that you need more oil up there, no need to switch timing belts then. just put it on and wire vtec

just get the D16 Block and the head. There is no such thing as a non-vtec block. No Blocks have vtec. vtec is all in the head. So yes it will completely bolt up with no problems, and make a D16 VTEC motor. Now depending on the D16 Block it will yeild different amounts of power. And have a different compression ratio. What is the code on the D16 Block?
