    The 88-89 teg has a d16a1. It is very similar to the zc, I belive the differances are lower compression and milder cams. I'm not sure but I think you need a slightly newer one for it to bolt in. I can't remember which years go into which chassis but someone here should be able to answer that better then I can.

    d16a1 comes in the 86-89 teg...it will wire to your si harness and use your stock mounts...d16a1 is considered the zc...if you look on your block, it will be stamped ZC...there werent be any d##a# stamping...just consider it dohc zc or d16a1...you can use most of your stock si parts...mounts, harness, injectors and a few other things that i cant think of now

    no the zc is not the d16a1... the mounts are different... just ante up and get the real deal from japan... oh and you need a std or dx harness to make the swap as easy as possible...

    and alas your answers were only clicks away... from swap articles...

    i do believe the d16a1 is the ZC...d16a1 is dohc non-vtec 130hp correct? well thats what ive got, because on my block, ive got ZC stamped...no d-stamp is there...there is a d16z and also the zc which is the dohc zc...brown valve cover or black...ive never seen a red one from the factory

    ive scoured the net looking for a pic of the a1 in the engine bay... the mount is different... if you have zc stamped on your block that is a different story...

    The d16a1 doesn't have 130hp, it only has 113.

    no...the car had the dohc zc in it when i purchased...i didnt research the motor until after i got into the car...my block has ZC stamped on it, so whatever the difference between the ZC and d16a1 is, doesnt matter
