    no. You have to use the DOHC zc block too, because as far as I know, thats the only DOHC d-series block out there.

    you can almost NEVER put a DOHC head on an SOHC block, or visa versa.

    The USDM D16A1 "Brown Top" was also a DOHC but you cannot as far as i know use the ZC head on the D16A1 USDM block. The bolts don't line up i don't think. Also the motor mounts are in a diffrent place on the integra than the civic if you are putting it in the civic.

    you should have started a new thread - but, 88 and up JDM DOHC ZC head will fit on the JDM DOHC ZC block, but will not work on the SOHC D-series block without a lot of special and time consuming machining - it will also fit on the 86-89 Integra D16A1 block, however, the D16A1 block will not bolt into the 88-91 CRX/Civic chassis without fabricating a custom driver's side engine mount - the D16A1 block also has a slightly different transmission attaching bolt pattern and has a different starter mounting

    essentially, for use in the 88-91 CRX/Civic, the JDM DOHC ZC head only works with the 88 and up JDM DOHC ZC block
