I love the A1's because they are DOHC. as far as the getting parts for them, its 50/50. There are always 2-3 older integras at pull a part, but i'm sure finding new parts might be an issue. If I was going to do one of these swaps, it would be A1.

With that said, there is a guy who races a Z6 with PM7 pistons and a cam in a EG 4 door and his cars DISTROYED mine when I had my Z6. His car is also an auto. Ever sense then I've been a huge fan of that motor. I'm sure the A6 with the same pistons is no slouch.

You could could run LS rods with Natural Gas pistons, but that may be too much for you to handle Robert lol

GX pistons are lower comp than ZCs, .1 less. And why bother with LS rods when they are the same length as D rods? You wont need the extra strength with an NA setup.

Robert, Ill send you a PM in a bit, gotta figure out a price.

It's not about a length, it's about the strength. LS rods are stronger than those paper thin d16/d15 rods, and with ARPs would be able to withstand higher revs. But we are talking about an NA d-series motor so that wouldn't matter much anyways hahaha.

Exactly. Turbo, Id consider it. NA, nope. ARP rod bolts are all Im running in the ZC.

Remember to use Dohc zc pistons not sohc's. I am about to do a z6 head on my sohc zc swap and new trans/clutch. I need a few lil things like hg, header,exhaust and to figure out how to get a CEL for park off when I use an auto p28...
Lovin the EF life, low and slow for now!!
