should work
But will it gain any power from just the head?

this isn't right
i know for a fact the D15B7 has 102hp at the crank, and the D16A6 has 108hp
i think someone messed with wikipedia

so you'd have a net gain of around 6hp, making it not worth it

why swap out whole heads when you can just take the A6 cam and throw it into the b7, same ports and everything just the a6 has a more aggressive cam. will work %100 fine
