    It can be done. Is it worth it on that setup no. But it only requires two holes to be opend up slightly, one alignment pin and one of the head stud holes has to be opend up. Any machiene shop can do this for about 30 bucks or even you could with a drill press if your careful. You will have to add a oil jet.

    The reason its worthless is because of the large combustion chamber of the zc, your compression will drop to about 7.7 to 1. Thats a little low even for boost. Now if you put pm7 pistons in there from your zc yull be lookin at about 10.5 to one with the zc head

    i dont know too much about the D series, but I don't think thats a correct procedure...I could be completely wrong.

    That is the correct procedure, but almost nobody does it. Just buy the entire ZC.

    exactly...sounds like a complete waste of time and money.

    yeah, but the reverse is true also. z6 head on zc block = 12.0 to 1 compression with the z6 head gasket. a little more worth the effort imo

    I'd rather swap the ZC pistons into the Z6 than try to move the head over.
