i'm a newbie when it comes to zc motors, but not a complete n00b to hondas..i've been lookin around for a crx or 92-95 eh2/3, but turns out my friend is selling a 1989 crx SI with a dohc zc swap from a 91 prelude in it, i'm not sure what tranny he's using, but i think it's d series tranny since i heard it bolts up to the zc motor, i know this motor puts about 130ish to the crank, and that's fine with me, i'm gonna use this as daily driver, and no need to hit 11's..reliability is more of a factor for me, since i need this to get to school and back every day now down the important stuff -does this motor have same/more potential than a b series? i was eventually gonna go lsvtec on any crx/civic i found -i heard b20 blocks/gsr head make good numbers, but then again, b20's have thin cylinder walls..would this be ok for daily? i dont want a piston flying out the side of my fender..=P -he has 70k on engine, should i rebuild it? i'm sure he hits redline once in a while.. he's the "let's race" type of guy.. -he's selling it to me for $1100, primered black 89 crx SI, sunroof works, body is rust/dent free except a small dent in the rear wheel well, barely noticeable until he pointed it out..GSR leather seats with a bit of cracking in it, GSR fat five's on 70% tire left, dropped on no-name coilovers, and he's giving me (2) ITR cam/camshafts for free..but i'm gonna just sell these.. WHAT IS THIS MOTOR CAPABLE OF? edit: this is a JDM dohc zc, and i'm in Cali, the mac daddy state of civic hating..he said this car will not pass smog, anything i can do to pass it or even stay away from gettin caught?
