    Z6 head will make no difference (not to mention the VX has some things the Z6 didn't like an oil cooler that make swapping it a pain), the VX motor is hopeless, don't waste a dime on it.

    well when i got the motor it didnt have the manifold but i already have one cool
    so theres nothing to do to this crap of engine then?
    what about the hf swap with the 16v head how would that work ive been reading about it but im confussed i thought the exhaust valves wont clear the pistons so would it work
    any info would help
