Gotta love the ole EGs! The Z6 is a solid engine to work with but Im partial to my twin cams. H22 swap it and eat some Camaros!

Good luck with the body work. It looks like you have a lot of work ahead of you.

PMed.

But seriously for the price youre probably going to pay for a junk B16 or GSR block you can get a nicely worked LS bottom end. At least last time I looked around here. Definitely do your homework and do what you wanna do but you cant beat a turbo LS for bang for the buck. Look into the P8R head from a B20Z. Almost identical flow as a B16A VTEC head without all of the VTEC nonsense.

If you cant tell, I love ma Hondas.

It all depends on your power goal. Don't let that little single cammer slammer fool you. The vitara rods and eagle piston combo with some boost will make some good power. I've actually got a 99 dx with a z6 swap im building and boosting.
