yes, its called a Mini-Me swap and its a VERY common thing to do. Not necesarrily easy, but common. Search Google or use the Search feature up there ^ to find more info. Just search "Mini-Me".

I'll start ya off:d16z6 or d16y8 heads are the most common heads to swap on.

yes, the z6 head will fit onto a d15, z6 flows better than my y8
