    i was lookin on the internet and found a jackson racing supercharger on some website and it is 8psi at 140hp. would it be better to get that supercharger rather than a turbo????

    and when lookin for parts for my zc what motor do i look for the d16a6 or zc????

    well the + of a supercharger is that it is instant power the down side is it takes away power to make power a turbo will be better because you can go as much psi as you wont and its free hp

    i'm pretty sure i read somewhere that the DOHC ZC (non-vtec) was originally a turbo project by honda which was eventually cancelled don't mark my word tho. plus from the results i've seen as far as SC or turbo on the ZC i would say turbo all the way.

    Bumping it up to 140hp isn't even worth it. The zc motors are rated between 130-140hp anyway. Are you sure those numbers are right? If your looking for more than 210-220hp plan on buying a new bottom end, the rods are toothpicks.

    Nah. The D blocks can handle 200whp all day long with the right tuning.
