    also you are not doing a mini me swap (mini me= vtec head on non vtec block) you have a d16z6 which is vtec already, why would you want to swap heads

    I would personally prefer a z6 head, and that's not a mini me swap. Listen to the guy above me lol.

    Not only is this not pertaining to a 9th gen. Civic but you're not showing anything off either. Please read the section descriptions before posting and select accordingly if you wish to maximize helpful exposure. I also tweaked your title to be more pertinent to your question.

    With all thst said, if you want to swap a head yet dont know something as relatively simplevas where to find used engine parts then I strongly suggest to do plenty of research before purchasing or swapping anything. Our search function is a great start.

    The gains from a y8 head on a z6 if there are any would be negligible. From what I remember, the y8 IM flows differently than the z6 making better power on the lower end and sacrificing top end...that is if IIRC, it's been a while. I might have it reversed. Also, I believe you're supposed to use the hardware from the corresponding head i.e. bolts/gasket. That being said, unless you already have all the parts, you'd just be wasting your time and money for gains that may or may not be there.

    If you're dealing with a shot z6 head then maybe getting a y8 head to replace would be an easier find but if not then I would stick with the z6, it's a good little motor.

    The Z6 is a good 1.6 motor to modify if you have the funds. I'm not sure how much the block and heads can withstand with internal modifications, i.e. higher powered compressions and greater torque output, but as a lightweight factory spec'd NA engine you can go far with your bolt on setup.
