    I'm plannin on using Vitara pistons in my d16z6 build and was wondering how much boost they could take. Anyone have any first hand experience using them or anything of that nature.. Thanks..

    I think the stock bottom end will hold 220whp, I believe that's crankshaft/rods.

    Yeah around 250 whp for sure to be safe.

    I know that the D15's stock rods are like toothpicks. Not sure if the z6 is the same way, or not.

    I was planning on using some eagle rods. The stock z6 rods are kind of weak from what I understand..

    Depends on the turbo. Never base safety on "psi" alone.
