    So the title is from a website, nippon-motors.

    probably going to shoot down there tom an pic up a motor..

    .the only problem is i have no idea if that motor exists or not lol .

    i did some quick searches and came up with nothing.

    i was under the impression that the a6 was usdm/90-91 only.

    i was also under the impression that a "ZC" was DOHC only?

    if anyone would like to clarify that would be amazing

    Thanks in advance.

    There was many "ZC"s, and the A6 was from 88-91(at least in the US).
    There's the DOHC ZC(similar to D16A/A1), SOHC ZC(similar to D16A6), and SOHC ZC VTEC(similar to D16Z6)

    So what would the equivalent of the sohc non v-tec a6 be for 92-96? im guessing jdm, because this place doesn't deal in usdm motors.im just confused haha i know all D series will fit in my EF im just trying to get away with a clean daily driver that doesnt require a new harness and or a crap top of wiring.If i wanted the headache i would drop an h22a in it lol.

    Also thanks for the quick reply.

    having purchased over 50 ZCs in the last 10-12 years, that title would indicate to me that the engine is a JDM SOHC ZC, non_VTEC, OBD0 and they are just indicating that it is the same as the D16A6, which it basically is - it has a better camshaft and is around 118hp

    Use whatever IM you want. Only difference is the injectors, use your OBD0 ones w/resistor box or convert to OBD1 injectors and delete the resistor box.

    to run OBD1, you need OBD1 distributor - 92-95 D15B7 distributors will bolt right onto the SOHC ZC non-VTEC

    I am currently trying to drop a dohc zc into my 90 honda civic dx, there was a non vtec sohc zc in the car before. I'v run into a couple small issues, and currently a lil stuck, I'm not gettin any power to my plugs, have new wires and plugs, so i kno my issue is in the dizzy, not entirely sure which dizzy i have, is there a certain one i should be using? or is the problem back in the ecu? Im usin the same ecu as the sohc with a converted plug to adapt to the extra cam, Im not much of a gear head, so I could use any help i can get.

    OBD0 DOHC ZC uses a TD03U distributor - do you have the spark plug wires in the correct locations on the distributor? - the DOHC ZC is different from SOHC - #1 plug wire is at top - #3 at front of engine toward radiator - #4 at bottom - #2 at back toward firewall
