Default Sweet, my Z6 is here

For future references, dotline shipping is awesome. They emailed me quickey, the truck driver called me to let me know he was close, and they unloaded it for me. Here's a couple pics of the beast-to-be

nice, are you going to document the installation or anything like that, I would be very interested in seeing that as I am looking at the same type of swap or the d15b(pretty much similar). Are you gonna use your trans. with it?

Its still in the crate, I'll get some pics later when we get it to the shop. Its going to be built and boosted but for now, I need an intake mani for it and an oil pan. I'm going to use my tax return for rods, pistons, and having the block machined. And yes, I'm going to use my Dx trans with it(longer ratios are good for boost).

I dont know the milage, I'm rebuilding it though so it shouldnt really matter. Plans? where do I start...

Scat rods
YCP Vitara 75.5mm pistons
port/polished head
maybe an aftermarket intake mani/TB
Zex cam
Skunk2 valve springs/retainers
550cc injectors (maybe bigger)
t3/t4 turbo (haven't decided on what trim)
cast iron manifold
some kind of used/cheap front mount and custom IC piping
tial 38mm wastegate
HKS SSQ BOV
Action or ACT clutch
theres other crap I'm forgetting and some misc. stuff that'll be added as I go. In the mean time I have a pretty sweet idea for the valve cover

looks like it will be a strong solid reliable motor if the tune is good
