    My new ZC motor came with Longblock, Intake Manifold, Exhaust Manifold, Injectors, Fuel Rail, Throttle body, Alternator and Distributor. I'll be dropin it into my '91 Civic DX. My question is what should I do for an ECU? My options seem to be hondata or a rechip. Is it possible to go about it this way, or do I need the ZC computer?
    thanx~

    You can use a PM6(89-90 Civic/crx si), PM7(ZC), PG7(integra Has to be 90-91) ECU all three of these will work the best one is the Pm7(Zc), Then the PG7 is the next best thing better air and fuel curve and higher rev limiter then the PM6 but it does work

    1990 Civic Hb
    1990 DOHC ZC
    PM6
    AEM cold air intake
    full cat back exhaust.
    3 Inch drop
    16s for race and 17s show

    More like 88-89 Integra pg7, 88-91 pm6, preferably the 90-91 if you want to chip it.

    Is the PG7 'plug and play' or are mods. necessary?

    As long as you do the mpfi fuel injection swap, the pg7 will be a direct swap. You will have to do the mpfi swap to run 4 fuel injectors, no matter which ecu you use (unless you keep the dx fuel injection which you would use the pm5 and it would be totally usless to use this fuel injection)

    Allright, Hmotors let me buy the ZC ecu seperately. 150 bucks, probably the same a junkyard would charge for a high miles teg ECU. Thanx alot guys, you really helped.
    ZC longblock: 525
    ZC ECU: 150
    SIR Gauge Face: 150
    Shipping: 250
    I still need to buy water pump, timing belt, head gasket, wiring, etc.
    Who knew a damn ZC swap would cost $1500?

    P.S. : Im sure I'll be back on the board when I cant figure out whats wrong
