All D16 blocks are the same. The OBD thing is just the wiring style. You can swap everything over from the blown up y8 and use all the same wiring/ecu/sensors. Just be sure to pull the knock sensor off the y8 block and swap it over too. It's on the back of the block near the top. y7s don't have them.

Yep, it's just empty on the y7 block. The sensor unscrews.
