    Well it is a Honda, so nothing will be missed.

    Easily achievable with the correct crank. Custom pistons are preferred because the lighter the better, but you don't have to bore it out to achieve the larger displacement; it just helps if you do decide. I don't have the answer as to which OEM pistons are the correct ones though.
    For the most part, no matter what, this will be an interference engine (as it was designed from the factory), so don't be frightened by that aspect; you'll have to either trust your research or physically assemble the motor and spin it over by hand (with putty inside) to confirm clearance.
    Don't lower the C:R. Don't. The engine is fine the way it is, you'll make it much worse off-boost and it won't be worth it. Build the engine around that.

    ~Aiming for 300-350hp range with the ability to turn up if ever needed. This will be my DD though
    Since this is a DD, I wouldn't even consider 350whp. The M20 is pretty tough but there's no need to stress the thing out and compromise driveability. I agree with the KA Motors turbo kit recommendation. Read up on his site.

    ~Is there a way to maintain the 6500 redline despite an increased displacement?
    Upgrade the rocker arms, use an oil cooler, keep up the maintenance.

    Build something small, learn it inside and out, get used to it, and then upgrade later. Depends how long you want to keep the car though. The simpler it is, the easier it is to fix when it inevitably breaks.
    +1 this guy hit it right on the money.

      I know the immediate response is gonna be along the lines of "use the search", but it's not that I can't find any info. It's moreso that there's way too much information. There are so many variations and versions of this build that I'm just overwhelmed when trying to figure out the best approach

      Hoping someone can provide some guidance here.

      Goals / Notes:

      ~m20 block ( I know 24v swaps are much easier etc but would like to keep the stock core in the car for sentiment's sake. My build direction has always been OEM+)

      ~Would like to bump up the displacement slightly (2.7-2.8 range) for lower CR but have seen several build versions where there was contact interference depending on the parts installed

      ~Aiming for 300-350hp range with the ability to turn up if ever needed. This will be my DD though so I'm not trying to do anything to crazy in terms of power

      ~Is there a way to maintain the 6500 redline despite an increased displacement?
      I'd say build a 2.8L. Order custom forged pistons in the compression ratio of your choice. Something like 8.5:1 to 9:1. We can get them for you! 300whp should be doable with 10-12psi depending on setup etc. I would definitely recommend upgrading the cylinder head for more airflow. Porting/polishing is ideal, turbo grind camshaft, HD rocker arms, performance valve springs, etc. You can easily take the engine to 7k. Oh, and don't forget ARP goodies throughout!

      Drop us an email if we can help. M20 engines are kinda our thing. ;)

              Do you guys think an open diff would be worth more as is or welded?

                a little more.for your time and effort^. just my thought.
                was looking at craigslist and some of the ads on there are ridiculous. the ads that get me are the ones that say "if i fix this price will go up" dude f*ck outta here. sorry just wanted to vent.

                  To the right buyer, probably. The drift guys usually spend about $50 to get their diffs welded so thatís something to consider.

                    I picked up a running 97 z3 5 speed for a part out but I just got into a car accident that totaled the daily instantly so if anyone is looking the aluminum motor, pm me please. Only keeping the zf. Everything else must go.

                            Wife was out with her cousin and she got rear ended on the freeway. It was father and son bonding at home. The motor is a aluminum 2.8. Gonna get running video and compression numbers prior to pull. But was a 20 mile drive back and had no issues.
