Hi guys I'm trying to swap a k20z3 head onto my 9th gen k24z7 block. What timing cover do I use and what valve cover do I use? I was told about there being oil leaks if I use the k20z3 valve cover with the k24z7 timing cover. Also wondering what headers can I run with perfect fitment or what fabrication needs to be done to fit an 8th gen civic (06-11) k20z3 header

you'd have to use the k24 timing cover for sure as the block is taller. Older style valve cover is not compatible with newer k-series engine so you'd have to use the k24z as well if you dont want any oil leaks

Have k24z timing cover and valve cover but the k24z valve cover does not seal properly with the k20 head
