will it fit, yes
Will it run, not unless you throw it off a cliff, it will acclerate at 9.81 m/s^2

The zc is obd0 your car is obd1. It is illegal for starters (cant put an older engine in the car) and you would have a wiring nightmare. Instead looks at the b16asirII or any other bseries of that generation. If you are on the cheaper route, look at the d16z6 (very poor mans swap) or the LS (much much much much much much much much better than the z6 swap)

Or, if you have the d15 bottom end in good condition. Do a mini-me. Look in the article section, Chet did a nice write up on one for a crx, its basically the same. Also, see search at the top? Type in Mini-Me and see if anything comes up (might not b/c a lot of the posts were lost during upgrading).

Everything these guys said. It's not worth the hassle of downgrading from OBD1 to OBD0, and for the price spent, you could make more power with a mini-me or a Z6 swap with VTEC and boltons.

you didnt disagree :) nah.. i was saying if he has a d15, just go mini-me instead of trying to get a zc into his car. i was telling him to search for it b/c it has been explained a million times, but then i also said nothing might show up b/c of all the lost posts lately.
