Default Which motor? A6 , z6 , or minime(both)

Plans are getting drawn and I'm on the fence with options.

I have access to this list

Zc (jdm a6 clone if I'm not mistaken)
D16z6 w full si wire harness
Virgin p28 ecu.

Goals so far.

I'd like to build a street/strip sleeper crx
350-400 hp
As far as track times I'd be very happy to get low 12s to high 11s..
In order to keep this car sleeper I don't want to be forced to install a cage to run the 1/4. I think last I checked it's required for any 11-11.5 sec car.

RELIABILITY. I want to build her strong and be able to hit the track hard all day with her. This car will be driven to the track aswell.

So which motor? And what makes you suggest it?

Considerations from my self almost makes me want to go with a straight z6.

Helpful input is greatly appreciated.

I prefer the A6 to keep things simple, however, I like the Z6 ports and many of the OTS (Off the Shelf) VTEC cams for turbos are very, very good. Ugh, I can't believe I'm going to recommend this, but, something with a Z6 head will be a very good start to making your power goals

Put the a6 in the front and the z6 in the back. Duh silly that way you got more power pushing you instead of pulling you.

Do you like getting made fun of OP?

Do you think were dickheads?

Do you know what your talking about?

Do you even know what your doing?

Do you think im a asshole now?

That little test should keep you occupied.

IMO z6 will do you fine..but its your decision and your money, not ours.

But you got alot of research to do and you might wanna reread your original post..you came off pretty stupid

Be careful noob. I personally dont care to much about my rep as I use this site to SEARCH information, but some on here do care a whole bunch and they will stick both thumbs in your ass if you fuck with theirs. So call this the rule of thumbs and dont give ANY rep until you have proven yourself not to be the average retard that joins this site to ask stupid shit.
