    hows it going ok here it is

    my ride is a 1992 Hatch back DX from what i know my DX tranny now has its input bearing going on it, soo time for some change

    I'm pretty new to the whole honda thing soo B series D series K and all that dosent really tell me much well dont get me wong i'm not stupid
    B is intergra, D is civic, K is RSX

    but here it gos i found a 1991 ZC HB


    Car was in accident, it is running but not drivable however can be towed easily. broken axle

    full drive train/ suspension. $600


    DOHC ZC Motor ~80k
    Lightened Flywheel

    Chikara Headers
    Short Ram Intake w/ filter
    Hollow Cat
    SI Transmission x 2 one installed on the car one 1988 SI with 6 months use on it (was new)

    from what i know no AC no POWER STEERING

    here it goes how and what do i need to do to swap it to my EG

    from what i know he has a interga ECU for it so i'm guessing its runing of the integra harness

    I called a shop they said that i'm going to have trouble with the motor and set up saying, that i would need a diffrent dist.

    is that true ? what do i realy need,
    and will my Power,steering work with it or no?

    the best advice you will get on this is from me.

    what i would do if i were you-
    sell all that stuff and buy a b or d series for your hatch.

    or

    sell the hatch and buy an 88-91 civic/crx that all of those items will work with.

    its too hard and a waste to put that motor in your hatch when it makes the same power as a d series vtec motor.

    I did the exact same swap that you are doing except my DOHC ZC motor was and 89 model and I was putting it in my 93 hatchback SI. Pretty much dropped right in and plugged right up. I had to use my original distributor and that was it. I threw a code for vtec but that was because I was using a vtec ecu. But a very easy swap non-the-less. Just use your distributor and the integra ecu. DONE!

    Personally, I would just look around for a 92-95 D16Z6 and drop the whole thing in. To use the OBD 0 motor in your OBD I car you're going to have to swap a lot of stuff from your motor to that one, includiong the tranny. Good thing is it all works together, bad thing is it isn't really worth the time, money and effort.

    I'm actually planning on putting a D16Z6 into Katie's 88 LX at some point- it's cheaper than trying to get another D block rebuilt for her car.
