Default water pump for mini-me

well, hopefully someone can give me some of their experienced knowledge..

i have an a6 motor and am going to do a mini-me swap with the z6 head. my question is:

which water pump do i buy? do i buy the z6 or a6 water pump?, also will the z6 pump fit the a6 block? the reason is, i went to the autozone and asked to compare the two waterpumps. one of them had a few minor differences. one of the holes were bigger than the other.

and, should i ask for a water pump from a civic ex or a del sol. i believe the del sol also had the z6 engine.

PLEASE HELP me on this.

thanks everyone.

timing belt is the only thing you need to change, either the z6 or y8 timing belt will be fine. but if im not mistaken the a6 and z6 water pumps are the same. the y8 water pump is different.
