    i just picked up a 91 crx dx about a month ago for $400. and i just bought a sohc zc froman japanese engine dist. in va. for $400 i know how to work on cars so thatsnot a problem. I just wanted to find a lil info on this motor. I see all types of threads about the dual cam zc just not alot about the sohc zc. I'm in need of a parts list for it so i can get it on the road asap. Any help from you guys would be greatly appreciated. Also this is my first honda so im a lil new to this. i usually drive american cars. But i need reliability......

    The SOHC ZC is basically a D16A6 bottom end with a slighty more aggressive cam in the head. That's about it. Sometimes you'll get lucky and have the higher compression DOHC ZC pistons in it, but I doubt you'll find any in yours. Go hit my web page if you want to see what my SOHC ZC looked like inside.

    For parts, you can pretty much use anything that works on the D16A6.

    If this is a SOHC ZC VTEC (which is really a D16Z, not ZC unless it's stamped ZC, then I want you to SHOW me), then you will share parts with the D16Z6.

    You can replace the TPS on the throttle body. The rivet-type tops can be cut or ground off, then bring the throttle body to the hardware store and find replacement screws or allen-head bolts. I'm sure someone on this forum knows the best size. You'll have to mess with the adjustment for the car to idle and run right too, so be prepared to take a little time with it.

    friend go with the DC header you'll love it. I have that engine in my civic 4dr and I'm having all sorts of fun with it. Remeber that no one with a d16 engine (unless they have like a shit load of modifications) is going to beat you B) , so that will be fun believe me. If you get the engine some good mods hey you'll be kicking ass all over the place... watch out for those CRX with b16 engines in them :worthy: if you know what's good for you... you'll have fun believe me my friend

    That's a subject for another thread... but real quick:

    1. Search. I've answered questions like these on the board a million times.
    2. The B20B/VTEC (not "vtech" dammit) is dead.
    3. Read my page- you might find the answers to some of your questions there.

    Lastly...

    :emofo:

    Proper grammar and spelling are good.

    Why do people constantly use the words VTEC with such disregard. At least give VTEC enough damn respect to spell it right. It is an acronym, there is no H in it. Please from now on spell it right. If you are lucky enough to be graced with VTEC spell it properly. When will people learn?
