    so within the next month or so I'm getting an 89 acura integra with a zc motor and at the same time im getting an 89 4dr EF and i was wondering what kind of problems i might encounter during this swap. do i have to use the ecu from the zc? and should it be a direct drop in? if so im gonna be fuckin stoked! just a little project to make me a little bit of money or just drive around.

    You sure it's a ZC and not a D16A1 that's in the Integra?

    In that case, it should just drop in fine. What trim is your Civic?

    ZC in your 4door should pull low 10's in the 1/8 mile..... convert it to obd1 and run a chipped P06 and it might do better

    I have a Z6(about the same HP) in my 4 door and it's pretty snappy, and still pulls 40mpg on the highway^_^.

    the ZC should sound alot nicer though with the 2 cams, growly.
