    hi everybody. i just had a quick question and i hope you guys could help me out.

    i am going to buy a sohc zc motor. is this motor good. what is the spec's on it.

    i am going to throw it into my 91 civic hb. does this motor just bolt right in. couldi us my d15 tranny, ecu and wiring harness?.

    -SEARCH for specs on the motor to see how much hp it has and dertime ur self if its enough for u.. id go with a DOHC zc if i was gona go with a zc
    -D series bolts right up to D series, you might need to exchange mounts but not sure... do some searches

    i did a sohc zc swap im my old 91 civic 4 door its all the same just drop in the new motor its a 1.6 sohc rated at around 135 hp and i think 120ftlbs of torque but im not sure of that it runs like a fuckin champ but you might want to put in like a stage 1 or 2 clutch cuz the stock clutch sucks the original motor had like 94 hp i went through two clutches before i realized that also d16 parts work on a zc

    Nope. SOHC ZC = D16A6 with a different cam. It's rated at 120ps, which would put it around 115-116hp. The torque is something more like 100lbft. 120lbft is more than the B16, and there's no way it's anywhere near that.

    By the way, a "stage 1" or "stage 2" clutch means absolutely nothing. Maybe if you write "stage 2" on the clutch with a permanent marker it'll hold up to abuse better.
