Default D16Z6 Rebuild Thread + snoob's Bay Tuck

So a little while ago, my friend snoob and I swapped a d15b vtec into his car, and the z6 that was in the way of that had to come out. After pulling the rod and bearing (w/piston) that was causing it to knock, we let it sit, and then busted the head off a month or two later, then the block, etc.

The process avalanched and completely became a full-scale rebuild and we have everything figured out save the crank and the pistons/rods. The crank is somewhat scored from the knocking rod/bearing, and may need to be machined along with acquiring an oversized bearing, and probably y8 pistons/rods or perhaps some tuner toy rods. Pictures of the crank are coming, along with pictures of the DIY port & polish job we did.

Hopefully I can put this in a 5g hatch soon, as long as the world's supply doesn't run dry.

may i suggest the Vitara Pistons and Tuner Toys rods set up?

the vitaras have been known to hold 425 so far. which is pretty awesome since you can pick them up for under 150 shipped for pistons and rings.

good luck and have fun with the build!

Ehh if I have the money I'll go with the Tuner Toy / Vitara setup; it's most definitely what i want. I'll probably be limited to getting rods and some y8 pistons for the moment, which is fine. Though boost is the goal, I'll probably run it high-comp NA for a good long while, that is, when it gets dropped in something.

The paint on the valve cover is Cast Iron - it's just the 500 degree-rated engine enamel from advance auto, but it looks real beast. The block and head are painted some 1200 degree aluminum color...I believe it's just called Aluminum haha.

Seeing this thing in the garage makes me think we're a little ricier than I'd like to admit...I mean jesus...we painted it billet

tell me about it i bought it 190k and drove that motor to 210k. its safe to say that the thing has been pushed hard its whole life

we took the crank into the machine shop today, when we walked in the smell of domestic vehicles just filled the air, as we cradled our baby d series crank to a man named chad, who said he'd take a look at it and call us back on a price later in the day.

aww you were in our hearts most of the time... well actually we imagined you standing there shaking your head at the sloppy job we're doing

oh yeah and we used my brother and a wrench to push down the valve springs... lol at least it worked, gotta mod a valve spring compressor eventually.

right now we're attempting a wire tuck on the passenger side of my engine bay, however we don't know how long it will be until we give up, and i doubt its going to look amazing. there will also be some painting, because the previous owner thought he'd up the value of the car by touching up the look of the engine bay with a fresh coat of black spray paint.
