dude bets of luck to you. I still think ZC's are just cool engines all together. Both You and Jason are gonna have clean fun little toys!  :D

lol they're honda's bastard engine.

but if you read up on them, they're supposed to be great engines for boost.

Mine went into the parts washer today and is spick and span, well atleast the block and crank. Ran a hone through the cylinders and I think .020/.5mm over pistons will work great. NPR Vitaras in a few weeks maybe and a block guard soon after.

I dont think I will be in that big of a hurry. I just get caught up in things and focus on it. I should be paying attention to the CRX, lol.

I have no plans as far as numbers. Hell, the car with have air ride on it to. Its not like Im going for speed, its just for fun.

yeah, i'm not looking to build the fastest thing on the streets. i just want to have the power when i want it. building it and seeing good, strong numbers is just rewarding .

if i boost it, i'm shooting for 300whp though  :D

Yeah.

me and pops are wrapping up on his b20vtec build. we have everythin g to re-assemble the block back together, which i think we're going to do over thanksgiv ing break while i'm home.

I just dont think I want to go NA B series. Thats what we're doing now, and I dont think I want to do another almost identical build. It wouldn't make as much power as pops motor, and i'm tired of him always shittin on me.

lol it's time i pass his ass  8)

Alan, after doing some researchi ng today there is no way we can run Vitara pistons in the ZC. If we did, our CR would be 6.5:1, lol

ZC DOHC Block and Head
Stock A6 pistons w/ A6 HG = 8.2:1
Stock A6 pistons w/ Y8 HG = 8.4:1
9.8:1 A6 pistons w/ A6 HG = 8.3:1
9.8:1 A6 pistons w/ Y8 HG = 8.5:1
10.3 Z6 pistons w/ A6 HG = 8.6:1
10.3 Z6 pistons w/ Y8 HG = 8.8:1

I think the setup closer to 9:1 would be the best. Faster spool and friendlie r to drive when not in boost.
There goes a budget friendly build, lol.

You can get away w/ a forged standard 9:1 Z6 piston that would net a DOHC ZC around the 8.3-8.5 range. A High c/r piston would actually put it around the 9:1 range. you could go with a 9.8:1 piston, which should get your ZC around 9:1.

^^^^ that was all from go-autoworks through pm's.

and yeah, budget build = :(

Those c/r's would have to be adjusted. The DOHC ZC doesn't share the same HG as the A6/Z6/Y8. It shares the same gasket as the D16A1. HKS Beaded gaskets or a Cometic would be what is needed for the motor.

You could bump the compressi on up in the ZC using  FJT Distribut or Connectin g rods (but it will still be relativel y low).
