Default Blew rod out of engine! Have a 97Ex D16Y8 can I use a D16Y7 Block?

Blew the #3 rod out the block like a Randy Johnson fastball through a pigeon. I was able to pick up a D16Y7 for cheap. I assume that I can swap out all my D16Y8 by stripping the Y7 and just moving the block over.

Is there anything I have to consider when swapping in the Y7 block?

Read the posts on this forum, so I am familiar with the fact that this is common swap for the DX guys to get VTEC.


Thanks in advance

Ferch

It's VTEC, not v-tech. That's a phone.

Yes, you should be able to make a "Mini-Me". Swapping your cylinder head (if you didn't damage anything of it), and your intake manifold with all plugs and such should be fairly simple.

Search under "Mini-Me" and lots of information will come up.
