Default HOLE IN Piston

I have had a problem with blown head gaskets in the race car this weekend really did it. The #2 sparkplug broke/lost the center electrode and put a hole in the top of the piston. What i think happened was the head gasket let loose and the water exploded the hot plug causing it to break which in turn put the hole in piston. Any other thoughts?? Also what heads will fit the 90 civic 1.6?

Nah. It'd be kind of a bitch to do a 5G VTEC head on a 4G non- block.
