    there are three basic zc motors.

    1. SOHC Non-Vtec ZC
    2. DOHC Non-Vtec ZC
    3. SOHC Vtec ZC

    basically you it sounds like you are talking about a "mini-me"

    try searching for mini-me.....

    The "number" stamped on a real ZC will actually be "ZC". If a block doesn't have the letters "ZC" on it, it's not a real ZC. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    A "mini-me" setup is a D series combo. It's a combination of the short block from a non-VTEC D series engine and a SOHC VTEC D series head. If you take a D16A6 from a 88-91 Si and bolt a D16Z6 VTEC head on it, you have a mini-me engine.

    The SOHC ZC non-VTEC was available from 88-91 and was identical to the D16A6 that was available in the US except for the cam profile. The SOHC ZC VTEC is functionally the same as the USDM D16Z6. The DOHC ZC was a dual cam engine (never available with VTEC) in the D series configuration- it made between 130-140hp at the crank.

    Never heard of a ZC16, and Honda doesn't list it as existing. Only numbered ZC's I have seen are ZC 1, and ZC 5. If you can, take a pic of the block code and post it.

    And no, it isn't a vtech, unless you have it plugged into a wall.

    Yes, please take pictures of your engine and post them up here- make sure to get the block code. That will help us help you.

    That's a really good price.

    I don't remember the gearing on the DOHC ZC transmission... and I can't find my file that had all the gear ratios in it. Damn.

    Just FYI- all D series transmissions from 88-91 were L3 transmissions. You have to look for a little 4 character code on the transmission housing close to the drain plug- that's where you'll find the code that tells you what type of gears are inside.

    I don't think those are the codes... look for "Mista Bone's tranny page" or something like that. He has information on his site about D series transmission identification. Maybe it's TJ... not sure. Google it up and you'll find it pretty quick.
