Default RT4WD Z6 turbo build.

I've been lurking on this site for a while but I'm starting to piece together a Z6 build for my RT and I know I'll be needing to ask questions on the forum so I need to start posting!

Basic idea is about 350hp, overbuild the motor, and use it as my around town/weekend/autox car.

I'm planning on a manual swap and Z6 build this winter. Suspension and braking just got done last month.

I've got a blog going currently if you want to check it out.

You have to modify the z6 block to accept the half shaft correct?

Yes, most have one hole tapped but the other two just started, like guides.

I would use the bottom of the a6 and z6 head that bitch if I had half a chance at saving mine.

I'm running a Z6 in my RT4WD right now. Well, I was until I let it overheat to get me home.

The holes were already tapped when I got the engine from the PO. I'm building a DOHC ZC right now to accomplish the same goal as the OP.

This, I agree. When I had my 91 rt I ended up buying a ZC because I purchased the car without an engine and couldnt find another a6. I chose the ZC over modifying a z6 just because of the situation I was in. I'm sure its not difficult.

luck of the draw. my current z6 just had the started holes on all 3. my last D16A had all 3 done, i think all A6s ive seen do though. My SOHC non vtec ZC also had them done.

It's sketchy but if you're careful, use a big center punch, drill straight, and tap smoothly you'll be fine.
