    D16A1 is from 86-89 USDM Integra - 113hp for 86-87 - 118hp for 88-89 - will not bolt into 2nd gen CRX - mounts different and will not bolt to the L3 transmission

    The D16A1 will bolt to the L3 transmission. The only problem is that not ALL the bolts will bolt up, however you can still use this combination but can only bolt 4 bolts to the tranny. This is usually fine though, unless you're pushin a lot of power

    the sohc zc has the same hp as the 88-89 teg motor (d16a1), so keep the sohc zc.....not worth ur problems

    Thanks again for all the info people.
    well ill keep the zc for now and use the d16a1 for a back up. I heard with up graded rods and zc dohc pistons and cams the engine will scream a lil!
    If i turbo my zc and it blows will the set up swap to the d16a1?

    well 91dxSiR the reason i got the sohc is i got a good deal on it and the engine distributor by my house was outta the dohc zc. as for the d16a1 i practically got it for free. yeah it would have been easier to buy the dohc. but hey oppertunities dont always come along ya know. hell ive been looking for a si trans for ever now still have yet to find 1. so until the oppertunity for that comes along ill just have to wait and deal with what i got
    thanks alot guys for all your input
