No the A6 isn't VERY slow. It was after all equipped into the Si. It has great build potential if you go that route. AS far as most 4 bangers. The stock A6 without a bunch of weight in the car and assuming you can drive it well. Its really a quick bugger. bAWDRACER6 said:so i am guessing the A6 is VERY slow? Cause my car seems pretty slow to me and its 30hp more then the A6... How do i tell if its VTEC?
Most people here will probably recommend you a Z6 or Y8 head. Its personal preference and what you want out of your build. Goals, etc.AWDRACER6 said:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_D_engine#D16A6 According to this it looks like it should have 130hp?? Right? How do i know which one it is? Which head is best for a mini me swap?
There are both SOHC and DOHC ZC engines.
The non-VTEC SOHC ZC is similar to the D15Z4 and D16A6 engine, but with more aggressive cam timing.
No, most often, people probably want to swap a D16A6, or a D16Z6 and they come across a ZC. Its same engine, same price (basically).AWDRACER6 said:so why would anyone swap in that motor? Is it better built for turbo??
