mintygood's NA D series build

Hey all! Some of you know what my build plans for this little z6 are but for those of you who don't here's the deal. I picked up a z6 engine from Ransom a week or so ago with a spun bearing. Plan to completely rebuild with eagle rods and vitara pistons among other misc things. I'm still researching the different types of turbos so that is still up in the air. After the block is built and the turbo is pieced together I will swap it into my EG hatch and HOPEFULLY get 300 whp once it's all said and done.

While all of that is in the works, I'm working on a Si tranny for a A->M conversion in my hatch.

I don't have any pics of the engine but I do have some pics of the car, A->M swap parts, and the tranny teardown.

Here is the specimen for the project:



All of the A->M parts:


Tranny:


Innovative A->M tranny mount:




Back seats I traded to Ransom for the z6...Hope you like them!


Tonight I *tried* to open up the tranny but gave up after I wasn't able to get the 32mm sealing bolt unscrewed...Also found this when I drained the tranny fluid...






Hope you guys keep checking back...hopefully will start engine tear down on monday. I'll keep ya'll posted.

That's what I'm thinking too but we'll see.

Worse comes to worse I replace some gears and do a Si/ZC hybrid tranny.

I'm about to take some more pics before work. Check back.

Hell yeah! Sounds like a friends build, hes using Tuner Toys rods and Vitaras. Hes hoping for mid 300s or better... SOHC_Mshue on Honda-Tech if you're ever in the forced induction forum over there.

He'll be using a T04e 57 trim I believe.

H-T people scare me :p

I know the concept behind turbos but I still have A LOT to learn about the different sizes and all of that shit. D-series.org has been pretty helpful...some dude pushing 741 hp i think on a z6 :thumbup:

I'm sure hes there, too. When we were both kids I was a dumbass trying to make my hatch clean... meanwhile he spent all his money on turbo parts. Still has the same car and its been through more than a few motors and setups, all SOHC though.

Haha true Dseries fan.

I'm just looking forward to taking it to the track and having people ask me to pop the hood only to see a tiny SOHC D series :)

Ready to see this build get rolling, once my Talon's motor is done, I plan on building a z6 for my hatch so I will definitely be looking for perspective on your build.. Let me know if you ever need a second hand or anything, I would love to help.

Pretty much have all of the parts for the engine itself picked out already...Just did some research for Tuner Toy rods and they looked like the better choice. But I will defiantly check it out for some turbo setups....still need to do A LOT of research turbo-wise.

I'll post up a detailed list of the changes and parts I will be installing tomorrow if I remember lol.


Thanks for checking out the thread!
