if u switch your heads with the old si one, u will not have VTEC. To use the old wiring with the new dizzy i think u will need to cut the old dizzys connector off and solder that onto the new dizzy off the Z6. Not too sure about the other sensors though

Search it on google or Honda Tech man, but I believe to do it you do use your existing intake manifold and sensors if you wanna stay OBD-0.

You can use the whole motor including the z6 intake.

Use your old injectors

Extend the harness wires for the fan switch to the new postion on the thermostat

You can use your old distributor but you have to slot the mounting ears...you can do that or I can do that for you if you want.

Z6 manifold is a better manifold, do you have a digi cam? Then take pics of the plugs and post em up and we can see if we can match everything up.
