    If you stick with the SOHC ZC non-VTEC, you can basically just drop it in and run without any wiring changes.. if you want to. The transmission, mounts and pretty much everything else will bolt right up. The fuel map may be wrong, but it'll be close- and if you have the time and cash, you can use Crome or Uberdata (or Hondata) to flash the ECU to something more suitable to that engine.

    SOHC ZC VTEC (basically a D16Z6) can work too, just add VTEC wiring and an ECU that's built for it.

    DOHC ZC will take a little more work.

    Yeah- it's not worth your time if you're thinking of dropping it into an OBD1 car. The D16Z6 will be just as good, cheaper to find and install, and has much better aftermarket support.
