I was looking at doing a minime swap before turboing the civic (giving it a little something extra since I have the y7 non-vtec head)

would I be better off getting a y8 or a z6 head? and why?




or... am I being a complete dumbass for asking this question? but I wanna know

z6 has a smaller combustion chamber... but the y8 head flows a bit better. has better "quench areas". i'd get a y8 head.

civicmatt.... the whole reason I'm doing the minime swap is so I can have vtec...

I wanna do the swap so when I put the turbo in hopefully this summer, I won't have to worry about finding an ecu that's non-vtec..

hopefully I can get a little extra power out of the civic by the minime and the turbo..

hahaha. some don't understand the mini me swap i guess. the y8 head has squared combustion chambers, therefore raising the compression and giving you a little more power.
