well as of right now, all motor, and maybe boosting later down the road, but as for now just all motor, im just scared that the fact that i might get a slow motor haha, like mine is right now, super slow, lost to a dx with test pipe... sigh my z6 isnt as strong or theres just something messed up with it, so i just wanna get me a good strong motor, so yeah i dont mind getting a z6 again, just finding 1 is pretty hard haha, most of the ones i seen has been kinda old, so looking for recent ones that i can get, but this shop offers d15bvtecs and i hear the d15b vtec 96-00 has 3 stage vtec, but im not sure

well yeah, im not sure if theres no diff at all, they just say the 96-00 is better than the 92-95, again i dont mind getting the d15b but then when i thought about it, it might be a bit harder to find parts for the car, but iunno with all these stuff that is comming out i might be able to find some, but again stil undecided

Go w/ the z6/sohc zc. The 1.6 block has alot more/cheaper aftermarket support.

^Exactly what I said. Since you'll have to go pick it up, take a close look at everything...even pull the vc and pan if they'll let you. Will it come with a warranty?

Just a thought, if you plan to build the Z6 anyway wouldn't it be more cost effective to put the 500$ for a new engine towards parts to build your current one. Hell if you shop around, you can build the Z6 bottom end for the 500$ you'll spend on the second Z6 and then you'd only need to spend another 1500 to put together a turbo kit.
