    the zc's engine code is i believe d16a6zc but i am probably wrong it is dual overhead cam but not vtec like the d16z6 is SOHC VTEC if that tells you what you needed to know

    in your rearview mirror..wait..
    In the US: ZC and D16A1/D16A3 are most similar.

    Elsewhere: ZC and D16A8/D16A9 are *almost* the same motor.

    In the US: The 86-89 Integra engine is basically just a detuned version of the ZC. It features flat-top pistons (ZC has domed), less aggressive cams, different rods, and a smaller intake manifold.

    Elsewhere: The A8/A9 only lacks the cams of the ZC to be the same engine.

    There is no D16A6ZC, there are never more than 5 characters in a Honda block code.

    d16a6 is like the single cam ZC.
    and yes that block is better... but the D16z6 head is better (VTEC)
    a friend of mine works for bullfrog, he has a ZC with a Z6 and stroked it to 1.8L 12.6 all motor all day.

    ZC is japanese version of the d16a6. D16A8 IS A ZC. they are the exact same block. If your asking us this question for a swap, pick one you can find for cheap and do it. but they are all relatively the same. if any, barely any hp/tq difference to notice.
