Still first question that should have been asked. WHICH H6?!
Obvisouly not an ER26, but EG33, EZ30D, EZ30R, EZ36R?

Read my build thread. When it comes do doing the car be ready to drop a little on the EG33, a safe easy amount on the EZ30D, or a LOT on EZ30R/36R
300whp is easy with an H6 but only AFTER you get it running. The getting it running is the hardest part.

EG33 is meh... I'll keep mine in my SVX. And the second to get built up to switch out when ready. My EZ30R will have to go on back burner while I get the rest of my car set since some parts fell through. Need to save anyways.

+1 I was just thinking this. its gonna be a fraeggin pain in the ass to get all the h6 performance parts imo because how many people really have a high performance, or semi upgraded h6 engine....that I do not know, but with the ej257 you'll have 20 pages of uber awesome rs25.com....awesome people setting. you know! Where the scroll bar is like 5mm IRL!

this is usable tq vs big top end.

in both cases, a well built eg33 wins.

personally i am want the twin tubro eg33. i have the eg33 in the 98rs. but it not running yet, later i will be doing a twin tubro install (like years).
i voted h-6 twin tubro.
if you do the eg33 swap get a donor car, don't by piece by piece (it sucks).

I would most likely go for the EG33 because there are a lot of them readily available for not much money.
The power would be sweet but I'm not looking for 600whp, this car is going to be my DD, thats why with the eg33 I was thinking like 350-400 even though thats more than enough but hey. I'm not sure though I think it would be more cost effective and make more sense to go with the ej257. I could always do a 300whp N/A build with the EG lol
