    which one of these motors are better for turbo? Or are there a difference? Someone told me that the y8 is better for NA and the z6 is better for turbo. :eek:

    they are both pretty much the same damn thing.

    if you have a 92-95, use a z6
    if you have a 96-00, use a y8

    that way, your swap will be slightly easier.


    the y8 has a slightly better head and intake manifold, but IMO, its not worth the swap hassel-- esp. if you are going to boost it.

    were talking about a 3 hp difference here people....

    the y8 IM is better flowing than the z6... but bolts right on the z6.
    the y8 has slightly more compression, and a different head design (kinda like a b16 vs a gsr)

    the point is minute. do the easier swap.
