Default would it be worth the effort

i have the '91 body (si hatch) and i have the engine still from my '88 hatch, and from the si. the si has a crack in the number one cylinder. so, would there be any benefit in taking the d15 block and d16 head, i may do it just because all the parts are there, no cost. but if it would run as strong as the si did, pre-crack, then i would most deffinately do it. or how would that setup respond to turbo? it may just be time to start my first turbo!!!

im tired of waiting on this b16, im getting sick of hearing myself ta;lk about it, haha. but it is progressing again. i pick up the head tommorow, just had sk2 valves, retainers, springs, and new seals installed, and had it milled just a little bit to ensure a good gasket seal. with that, the thin head gasket, and stage 2 cams, im hoping to get some good compression and hp...

it had a couple scratches across the surface, so just enough to remove those and make certain it was nice and flat

usually they go about .010", so that would put you to about 10.7, or slightly higher.
