    87 Integra D16A1 is not a ZC - it is similar to the JDM "browntop" ZC, but not the same - the ZC is a JDM engine with around 130hp - the 87 D16A1 is 113hp, 99lbf torque - the D16A1 does not bolt right into the 2d gen CRX or 4th gen Civic - it will bolt into the 1g CRX and 3g Civic

    there is no usdm zc only jdm 88-91 has a black top and the bolts on the valve cover are around the out side and it will go right in all you need is a 88-89 integra dizzy and a dohc zc intake you can use a 88-89 teg you can use a zc,d16a6,88-89 teg throttle body they are all the same and you can use a zc ex manfold or D16a6
    you can use a 88-89 teg pg7,dohc zc pm7, sohc zc ?, d16a6 ecu pm6 (jdm have speed limiters at 115) the 88-89 red lines at 7600 rpms best thing to do is chip a pm6

    on your d16a1 you have to use a 86-89 teg or 86-89 zc tranny if you had a 88-95 black top zc you could use any d tranny 88-95 or the shorter geared 88-95 zc trannys. if you have 86-87 d16a1 brown top motor 113 hp you are going to have a lot of problems it is vacuum advacened timing so you would need a 86-87 pg7 ecu and you would have to depin and move wires so it will run the motor plus custom motor mounts and a 86-89 teg tranny with linkage, 88-91 civic linkage wont work. you need to sell that motor to some one with a 84-87 crx. you can buy a 88-91 dohc zc 136 hp with 30K for 550 osaka jdm motor inc it will bolt up to civic tranny and bolt right in the car. good luck with whatever you do
