    I see a carb so my best guess would have to be it's a 1985-1987 CRX Si ZC... JDM of course.

    specs are in the engine list in the reference section.

    ZC 1590 137@6800 108@5700 9.5:1 75 90 dohc no 0 1990-1993 CRX (JDM)

    If it's a carbureted ZC it's going to have less power than that...

    Except the 85-87 Si had a PMGFI DOHC ZC, not a carb.

    You also can't discount the fact that it may not have even been a carbed model. More than a couple people have swapped from injection to carbs, and the motor is definitely not stock. The CRX I found in a junkyard with that motor was, if memory serves me right, a 5XXXXX serial number, and it was a 85 Si, but it was PMGFI.

    Anyway, if someone has the time and patience, they can go through here and find a model with a like motor....http://www.honda.co.jp/HOT/ModelData/index.html

    I think you right, it's 87 since I saw '87' stamped on the head. But I still confuse about what it was originally come from, Integra or Civic/CRX ? I found info from
    ZC page
    told that eng no starting with a 5 is 2nd Gen Integra. If I'm not wrong 2nd Gen Integra is 90-93 ??

    Possiblily, the Japanese had ZCs in the 90-93 Tegs. Check out teh link I post, it is Hondas model data page. You might have to explore to find the info, but it's a great page.
