i would use the Y8 2 layer if youre going all motor. That would make it around 10.4:1

It won't matter to much, jsut use a stock Z6 gasket and keep the power down. You won't be able to go over 200 anyway with stock rods.

Theoretically, with an OEM MLS gasket, it will be 10.22:1 (if I remember correctly). Obviously a lot of factors can affect this.

10.22:1 is fine for a turbo if you have a good tune and don't get too greedy for power.

How much power you plan on making ...I think you would be better off getting a 1.6 block if you want 200+...

10.22:1 compression I heard this might be a bit too high for turbo? Or am I wrong? cause I heard between 9-9.5 is the preferable compression for turbo?

9-9.5:1 is "preferable" because it's "easier" to tune. You can boost an 11:1 engine if you wanted to. Keep in mind that it's cylinder pressure that's making power, so with a higher compression engine, you won't need to run as much boost.

I would to get at least in around 220-250 ish range. Is this unreachable with a mini-me then?
yes - your rods will not hold that much power

I have a b2/z6 mini me with high compression, currently maybe 120-125hp, I only want maybe 170-180 hp. Is that ok with my current compression? Would I just go for a smaller turbo and tune it well and it would be ok?

don't remove any layer from an OEM head gasket. they're designed the way they are for proper sealing. buy a cometic/aftermarket thinner one or have the head milled or install higher compression pistons, but don't run a "2 layer" gasket.

That should be fine... However, when you say "high compression", how high are we talking?
