    use the same bottom end components. I think the number of teeth are different though. i did a mini me, keep the bottom ends water pump, i forget the belt off hand but search in our FAQ section here.

    im pretty sure you use the belt for the head so you dont mess with the timing.

    yeah but if i remember correctly you'll still be off by a like half a tooth or something. most people just get an adjustable cam gear to fix that though, or just run it how it is.

    i thought that it was better to use the water pump that matches the head so that the belt would ride it properly, asfar as i know they are the same except for the sprocket and the correct belt for the head

    googling it helps. "mini me swap"

    most swaps tend to run the water pump that came with the bottom end. Unless your revving beyond 10,000 rpm i wouldn't worry.

    make sure to take out the oil control jet on the block as well.

    timing belt would be the one for the head z6

    check out some threads people post up to double check things and to get familiar with the swap.
