i have a d16z6 and i am looking to get a little higher compression.
i know the pistons for the 90 crx si are a direct fit into the y8 but is it also a direct fit into the z6?
another question, i have bad rings so i am having new rings installed and i though well might as well throw some better pistons in there. what else will i need to upgrade when i have this done, bearings? anything else on the bottom end? how long will i be able to go b4 i have to do anything to the valve train?
thanks in advance.

They should fit, same pin and bore.

Unless you've got a uprated cam the Valvetrain isn't an issue. And the rods are good for 200bhp.

I would never push the limit on stuff like that....I mean....don't we want reliability AS WELL AS performance!?

I know I do.

if your car idles smoothly,,, you don't really want to make Hp.;)
that or you haven't really modified your car... hell even a turbo motor should idle shitty. power and poor idles just go together. it's why i don't like vtec... takes all of the fun out of first gear.

lol man infinate and i are just doing a little post whoring.
on a car that is equiped with vtec you will have a hard time getting a mild cam to idle poorly. it's one of the benefits to vtec... you can have a good idle with a crazy profile.
