so i was wondering could it be done or well it run like s**t because i am taking his d16 block and putting my y7 head on it.

I would definately use the complete d16z6 engine, it has more hp and is better for boost (if you plan to). But I would also look for a z6 tranny or y8 tranny because the y7 has long gears.
