    Doing a Z6 Mini-Me swap on my friends car. We were just wondering what torque specs we should use on the head bolts. The ones for the 5th gen? or the ones for the 4th gen si? does anybody know what these specs are?

    to be total honest if you have access to someone who has a bolt stretch gauge, it is more accurate than by torque settings. and since the cyl. press. is greater with the higher C/R you would also be better off spending the extra few bucks and picking up the Z6 arp head studs. its beneficial for the new pressures the block will endure and will help in keeping those headgaskets intact as well. + its cheap insurance for the amount of work your doing. good luck.....
