    They are similar to the Zc motor.
    Why not just rebuild/build up the teg motor?
    Do you want an OBD0 or OBD1 DOHC Zc?

    NO ONE in their right mind would trade you a ZC for a D16A1...

    And yes you are more than likely correct on that one.With that being said,he may as well save his beans for a Zc or build up his teg motor.Him not knowing what OBD is and he wants to do a swap kind of worries me.

    because the d16a1 cannot be bolted into a 4g civic or 2g crx. they are only bolt ins to the 3g civic/2g crx


    but if you can find somebody crazy enough to make that trade, send them my way also. i have a d16a1 i need to get rid of also B)

    alright
    sorry for being "rude"

    OBD refers to emissions and electronics...

    OBD0 is up to 91 civic hatch...
    OBD1 is your 92-95 civics...
    i'm pretty sure OBD2 started in the 96-00 civics...

    now if you;re doing a swap you want to either stay in your OBD range, or go to a previous...
    with enough money you can make anything work... but the idea is that you have plugs inside your car for your ECU, OBD plugs match likewise OBD plugs...

    so if you want to do a sohc vtec swap in a 91 civic hatch, you need to either run an OBD0 vtec ecu, or get a P28...
    92-95 sohc vtec is OBD1, P28 is OBD1, but your chassis has plugs for OBD0, so you need a OBD1->OBD0 conversion harness...
    or a vafc but that a whole diffrent story...

    look in the refrence section on this site for some great articles on this...

    and a bit of advice...

    sell the D16A1, 500 if you find someone who needs a stock replacement and get lucky, or 200, even 100, whatever
    then buy a ZC from a good dealer for 400 or 500...

    That makes no sense...Typo??
    I thought that the 1st gen Teg motor would bolt up to a 4g Civic/2g Crx.
    Parts from the Teg motor are interchangable with the 1st gen Zc correct?

    yea, that was a type

    d16a1 bolts into first gen crx, 84 or 85-87, and it should also bolt into the same years civic...

    crx si has 90 horse, brown top d16a1 has about 115, so its a 25 horsepower gain from a basic bolt in swap... and its fun to drive too...

    i have heard of people trying to put a D16a1 into a 88-91 civic, but civic has the drivers motor mount off the side of the block and the integra motor has the motor mount off the front going to the driver saide frame rail... so not sure how you would mount it into the 88-91's...

    and yes, it is said you can swap out D16a1 internals with dohc ZC internals to make a ZC...




    i completely understand... best of luck on your swap man...

    WOW had to relearn some things...

    Now i remember,motor parts are interchangable but motors do not bolt into the same generation. :D got it now!
