k my 2000 civic lx jumped time and warped my valves. So i got a 96 vtec head distributor from a 2000 vtec and ecu from 2000 vtec automatic. what i need to know is will my stock intake manifold work? will it fit and will it do right? also i am gonna use my wiring harness just gonna wire the vtec solonoid. what kind of gaskets and what not will i need?

IMHO, I dont think that they flow the same... If you want a vtec mani, then just pm me.. You will have more power if you use the vtec mani...

Imy car i have d16y7 it jumped time. i am gettin a y8 head from a 96 civic. hopefully payin 409.50 for head automatic vtec ecu and vtec distributor.shipped from north carolina to south carolina. Then i am gettin a place to do a valve job on the head for 180 bucks. I really dont have money for another intake manifold yet I am hoping like hell the one i have will work good for a while. any helpful hints or tips would be appreciated.

I think you can find a better deal than that. I paid 180 for my y8 head.

u can use the y7 intake manifold but youll be missing out on the potential of the "vtec head"

oh and make sure u get the EX y8 transmission for the same reasons.
the DX gearbox is counter productive if your really concerned with performance. (as i said aboce, its the same with the y7 updraft intake manifold) .. counter productive to performance.

great for 40mpg tho.

yes.

check to make sure you have 16v releif pistons in that thing. if you are part of the unlucky few that honda gave the 8 valve relief slugs to then nope you cant without changing those.

theres a few other issues as well but it is possible.

Well I don't want to make you feel bad, but you got ripped on that distributor for sure, since your Y7 distributor is the same as a Y8. I'd try to return that sucker if I were you.

As stated, your manifold will bolt up and work OK, but will not provide good flow for top end power. Soon I will be making an ITB setup and selling my Y8 manifold, let me know if interested. It doesn't have the air injection holes but I don't think those really matter anyhow.

As for the Y7 head, you can repair it with Y7/Y8/Z6 valves, it will be a good head on your B8 motor, I'd try picking up a P06 ecu to run with it though, or else chip your P05.

wow I just spent 137 damn dollars on a head gasket SET. I had to buy it so the machine shop could get the valve seals out of it. I feel like a whole string of curse words. :bh I've been butting my head alot. So do I have to buy new head bolts now also, if so how much is that gonna rape me for. And god what the hell else am I gonna have to buy for this. I wish I hadnt changed my own timing belt. Then my car wouldnt have jumped time. And I wouldnt have to pay all this cash. Im gonna have to start doing brake jobs and shit on the side of school and my job.Ha Ha 2000cvclilbolls=2000cvc no balls for now.

Once again, hate to break it to you, but...you CAN buy valve seals individually also for about $15 for the set. For stock application you can reuse your headbolts.

Bottom line: research every component locally and online before buying, knowledge prevents you from being ripped off. Try not to be in too big a hurry, if you're desperate that's when you get ripped off too.
