    I am just looking for some very very very nice setups for an all d16z6 motor. Something very performanced and yet not hard on the engine. Just looking for some really good idea's because I have an si motor just sitting around and now I decided to rebuild it. Im talking about the whole 9 yards.

    All motor? Turbo? OEM components? Budget?

    I want it to be All Motor, No Turbo, I would only use OEM Components if needed, Budget is whatever needed. Could I get a rough estimate of how much I could be spending.

    Anywhere from $1000 to $10000.

    Use the girdle from the D16A6, it's OEM and the strongest from the factory.

    If you want more compression, use the pistons from the A6 as well, or ones from the A1\DOHC ZC. For even more compression and a better top end, you can sell your head and use the money to procure a Y8 head\intake manifold\dizzy. The combustion chambers are better, the manifold is the best D-Series piece available and the head's the most capable SOHC VTEC around (at least non-3-stage VTEC-wise, if you wanted to go that route instead).

    The A1\ZC rods are also pretty good from what I hear.

    I believe the Z6 has one of the better cranks, so maybe keep it and balance the bottom end once you've put the block together components-choice-wise. Use the Z6 OEM dampener, rework the piston heads and oil galleries of the block like so:

    This stuff should help you kick off your research. Stick with your P28 ECU, that'll be great for tuning your car. I'm gonna recommend turbocharging as you commented on wanting to go all out. The cost of a turbo kit for the power you want to make can be done affordably and cleanly, without using any jank parts etc.. But this is a whole other subject and the engine build would have to accommodate boost.

    "Just looking for some really good idea's" - thread starter

    Just answering the call ;)

    I wouldn't build it for him though, that's something a person should do for themselves, unless it's a rush circumstance like the shit needs to run tomorrow and I'm the only one in the room that can do it, or am being paid or something similar. I was just guiding him towards some different ideas\concepts\opinions\parts to consider throughout the design aspect of his build, I hardly posted any spoilers or anything he couldn't have found on his own, merely some starting points and considerations.

    I think im gonna stick with all z6 block and head and just get a lot of internal parts and external parts. What 1/4 times could I get with a built z6 motor?????

    I trying to look for something over 200whp and im willing to spend around $4,000 or more.
    Could you think of any good setups to reach something over 200whp and with around $4k for a budget????

    But I hear that forced induction is pretty hard on an engine and couldn't last 3 years. If I just get an all n/a motor, I could last way much longer then forced induction.

    Dont you guys get it, when you add performance parts onto your motor or upgrade it it reduces the lifespan of the motor.

    Listen to what Blanco is saying to you guys.
    Holy crap!!!

    Well its like you ask a stupid question your gonna get a stupid answer kind of thing.

    People make it so much more complicated than it has to be. Take the simplest of approaches to the problem. And if that doesnt work than progress to the next step. And most of the time you dont even have to go to the next step!!!

I just heard different answers from different people. So if you guys want, could you give me some good setups???
