Its all up to you man. If ya dont mind building it and then end up pulling it out again if it blows up then id say go for it. Just get it tuned VERY well and hopefully that bottom end will hold together well for ya. If youve got the z6 head, you should be able to yank that off it if the bottom end goes and use it on another short block.

before you put the z6 head on it.. make sure it has the 4 valve relief pistons and not the 2 valve relief pistons.. chances of bending valves with the 2 valve relief..

cheaper to get the Z6 bottom end.

To beef up the D15B1/2/7/8 bottom end is $1300 for rods and pistons.

Any way of knowing if it has 2 or 4 valve reliefs on the pistons? Such as a serial number break?
