    I've searched this site and got lots of information......but still need some help with this swap. Went to couple of shops and can't afford to have them swap it.

    Check out www.thezcr.com for most of your torque specs and there is also a breakdown on how to adjust the valves on there. I had to replace my dizzy last year and got mine through ebay. hope this helps!

    If you cant find it i belive you could use the torque specs for the d16a6 or d16a9 block, i am not 100% sure on this though.

    Forgot to get cam seals so I have to wait till monday and order them. My package with the rest of the engine should be here tomorrow. Then I can start putin that together.

    Would it be a little easyer to leave the intake and exhaust mani off then plant the engine.

    When installing the motor i would say definitely leave the intake on and as for the exhaust, its up to you.

    Thanks that is what I needed got the cams and gears on. Now I'm just tryin to get an OBD 1 dizzy for the DOHC ZC.

    Found an ZC pm 7 ecu can I just put that in the car instead of swapin the dizzy and keep the OBD 0 injectors in the engine?

    If yall didn't see I have ZC cable tranny, 93 civic coupe interior parts, and subs fs.
