    I have a '91 CRX Si and I have the chance to buy a ZC for $300 from a local guy, but it has a blown head gasket in it right now. I found that I can use the Head Gasket 89 Integra 12251-PM7-003. Does anyone know if this will raise my compression ratio or what it will do compared to the stock ZC head gasket.

    I have no big plans to turbo this car...If I were to turbo I'd change engines and go with a b16 or something with a bit more power. But I will be running a 50 shot dry on this engine.

    If anyone can help, that'd be great..

    thanks.

    make sure its a ZC, and not an integra motor...

    just wanna make sure you don't get skrewed...

    and it should have no effect on compression

    It is a ZC, But according to a site, the integra gasket will fit, makes sense, they are almost the same engine. ;)

    300 for a smoked up ZC seems like a lot to me

    and yea, i would think the headgasket owuld be the same...
    i think its just diffrent internals
    they say you can use the ZC internals in the teg block to make a ZC...

    From what I understand the Integra gasket is a replacement for the ZC so the compresition ratio shouldnt change. But if you plan on keeping your ZC and wana learn more about it visit: www.thezcr.com There is alot of information there. Have a good day and good luck.
