im thinkin of doin a swap and a few other things with my car..
the swap is totally my idea but the rest me and my boss have worked out on doin
our thoughts are to shave the door handles. lambo doors. and possibly some kinda low key body kit or a lip or somethin.. most likely a lip. and were gonna paint it.. he wants to do lime green and i dont really dislike it but im still not sure..
as for the swap i wanna buy a z6 and replace cam crank pistons and rods then boost..
havent really researched and looked into it too much but its just a plan for now
any suggestions tips or ideas?

I think you need to do some research...I'm building a z6 right now and it's quite an undertaking. If you are building for boost then prepare to spend 1k+ on the block (not including cam and headwork) and around 2-3k for turbo kit (not including fuel management, injectors, and tuning).

I'm going by the prives on go-autoworks.com

they make some excellent are are perfect if you don't want to fuck with building your own kit. Judging from the noobie tone in his post (not insulting you) I assumed that you wanted a kit....here is a bottom line kit with a log manifold and a t3/4 57 trim:

The GO-AUTOWORKS Tuner kit will
Include:
-Stainless Log Manifold
-3" Stainless downpipe w/ flex and
02 bung
-38mm flanged dumptube
-Bullseye Power T3/T4 57 trim
-Tial 38mm Wastegate (silver)
-Tial 50mm Blow Off Valve ,(silver)
-Complete Oil Feed and Return Kit
-Intercooler
-Aluminum Charge Pipe Kit
-T bolt clamps
-silicone reinforced couplers
(this kit is also available in an A/C
version for $100 more w/ 2.5"
Downpipe!!
Complete bolt on,
-FREE set of NGK spark plugs!
$2,295


I suppose you could build one for cheaper if you are willing to be thrify and adventurous but that is a very fair price for what it is.

*EDIT* you will also want a good clutch, good tires and maybe even LSD if you are going to be running 300hp or else you will be just spinning the tired.....traction upgrades are very underrated these days for some reason...
