    A REAL ZC has "ZC" stamped on the block. Go look at my web site to see what it looks like on the block. If it has "A1" on the block tag, it's most likely a D16A1 from an 86-89 Integra. Those blocks are similar to the JDM DOHC ZC, but they don't put out as much power, the mounts don't line up quite like the DOHC ZC's do- but the pistons are identical.

    If you have an 87 Integra for the US market, then you have a D16A1 and not a ZC.

    88-89 integra D16A1 has a different distributor than the 86-87 (which had a round cap and vacuum advance) - the 88-89 distributor is the same as the DOHC ZC - you more than likely have 88-89 D16A1 in the car - is your car a 3rd gen hatch?

    check out the cam sensor on the end by the distributor, compare it to your parts car. the zc is noticably smaller.

    If it has a electronic advance distibuter i would say it is a d16a3 out of an 88-89 teg, a d16a1 is out of a 86-87 teg it has the vacume advance, i think it is american d16a3 because who would scratch of the i.d. tag of a j-spec motor? i think it makes a lil more sense that someone would scratch it off to hide its not a j-spec ZC

    no such USDM engine as D16A3 - all 86-89 USDM Integras are D16A1
