Can i buy an engine rebuild master kit for a d16a1 (88-89 integra) and install it all in my z6? Would be kinda convenient cause i wanna get some pm6 pistons to up the compression, but my z6 has got 245,000 miles and should probably be rebuilt soon.

It'll work fine, personally I'd go with a Z6 gasket and run ~12:1

i might be missing something but why do you want to up the compression witht he pistons and then lower the compression back down with the headgaskets. and arent you going to be pushing the timing belt length with the two hg?

Well it's my daily driver and it would be nice to have a little extra power and throttle response, but i still have to put pump gas in it and i don't want to worry about reliability. 11.5 has got to be more streetable overall than 12.0.

With my calculator, with a stock Z6 and the exception of the pistons, exchanging them for PM3's would put you around the static compression of 11.26. (http://www.knology.net/~jediklc/D.htm) That way, you could use the stock headgasket.

I just checked on that site an it says with p29 pistons in an all Z6 motor it'd yield 13.6!!!!!

I was searching around and found that pm3 pistons wont work cause of the wrist pin placement. I couldn't find a rebuild kit that included them anyway. I still think if i use 2 headgaskets i'll be in streetable form with the p29's.
