    well they are a cheap dual cam d series engine that make great tq and hp numbers. they also swap right into 88 to 93 year vehicles with no problems. they are ideal to turbo but they lack support for internal components. they are fun but upgrades are harder to find than with a sohc d-series or any b, h, or f series motor. hope that explained things and answered your questions.

    basically, they're strong d-series motors that can be bolted up to your existing d-series axles,transmission,clutch,mounts,wiring,etc.

    they're 1.6 liters with 75mm bore and 90mm stroke

    they come in SOHC and DOHC versions. most of the time people refer to ZCs as the DOHC versions, which make 125-130hp.

    Honda stopped making them because the d16z6 sohc vtec was cheaper to make, made the same power, and weighs less.
