Re: D16y5 head on a d16y8 block????
You'll need a Y5 ECU and wire up VTEC, EGR, 5 wire 02, etc. Not worth it in my opinion but if you're looking for a challenge then go for it. It would be better to look for a Y8 head, ECU and wire up the proper sensors but even that isn't going to net you much especially with the transmission you have.
