yes you can keep the distributor, you will have to run the p28. I'm pretty sure they make obd0-obd1 jumper harnesses for the dizzy to make it plug and play

there are a few dizzy's that bolt up and work but im pretty sure you want a z6 dizzy. alot of obd1 ones will work tho. i made a b16 one work, a y8 work with some wiring.but you cant keep your obd0 one, im 95% can rewire an ob1 or even an obd2 if you have the know how.

no you can not use the obdo distributer with the p28 ecu, and the only way to put the distributer on the z6 is to cut the top bolt hole on the distributer or your timing will be off and for the 2 smart people above go answer the ?'s in the retard sectionNo the a6 does not make 130 i think it get 108. 110 at the most. now im adding you to the list of the first 2 answers get out of here

The problem here is that the car is OBD-0 while the Z6 engine is OBD-1 you need either to convert the car to OBD-0 and use the PM6 and chip it for vtec or Convert the car to OBD-1. I suggest keep the A6, the real kicker here is that the JDM SOHC ZC 1.6L(D16A6 same motor that comes in your Si) makes 130HP vs the Z6 125HP. The differences of the the JDM SOHC ZC and US D16A6 is the cam, Deltacam makes regrinds for under $125 and a chip ecu $ 100 for less then $250 you can have a more aggressive Si.
