i was wondering if you could post up all the prices on everything you've done so far, and if you could post up all the specs? right now im in the process of either buying a D16Z6 or a D16Y8 to build for fe. i don't know if i want to go with the 1.6 or 1.5 as of yet. my Z6 is starting to knock now so i need a replacement soon and start to build it or another soon. thanks!
Cool Thread- I have just finished putting a y5 head and all the rest on a y7 in a 96 hatch. It turned out to be much more complicated that I had hoped but the car is running solid on its first first full tank of gas. I did a mild port job on the head and matched the y5 intake manifold to the head as well. I bumped the compression ratio to 10.3/1 and have the 96-00 ex headers with a 2.5" cat. no pinging on regular anf I do not feel any timing being pulled by the ecu so i think 10.3 is safe. the car is on eibach sportline springs with koni yellows and suspension techniques anti sway bars. i am running hx wheels with toyo t1r 195-55-14 tires. I'll post the whole project later but I like what you are doing. My car is quicker that it was as a y7 and it is getting better millage. I'll document how much better soon. Good luck! I learned allot and might be able to answer a few questions. I will tell you that if you get a good tune going ob1 solves lots of headaches i have experienced getting rid of CELs.
Civicdx94: I have been spread so thin lately that this has been put on the back burner. Don't worry I just recieced my modded oil pump back from ENDYN so now things should start falling back into place. By the way ENDYN does amazing work.
Suspendedhatch: Thank you for being so willing to share information with others. It's hard sometimes to obatin information and sometimes when others ask for it those who have earned may not feel inclined to share it so sharing is commendable. I just noticed that in your first post in my thread you said I would be your hero if I used Rollerwave's in my block. I have thought this many times but, right now I'm a poor college student who is paying out of pocket to complete my schooling so I can't really afford it right now. Although Rollerwaves would be sweet for now it's out of the question.
93dasgr: I have no problem sharing and I hope this helps you.

As you can see I have plenty of money wrapped up into this build about $3,632.34 to be exact. If I were to do this again(remember I wanted power and FE) I would have just swapped a y5 head onto a good block and went with a cheap turbo set-up. But you live and learn and I hope others can learn from this build as well.
mini-e: Yea complication will ensue esspecially if you have never done anything like this before but, if one has the focus then it will get done. I'm glad you got your car running that is awsome. I'm hopping that sometime soon I'll have mine back on the road. As of right now I can't think of any questions I have but, I won't be shy if I do have a question.
