no, the zc does NOT have a direct USDM counterpart. yes, you may get some things to fit and work properly like pistons and rods from another d16 but there is no exact counterpart for these motors here in the states.

The ZC comes in some/all of the pre 90 teg's. There are so many different versions of the zc, its not even funny. From what i read, the Teg ZC wont bolt to a civic/crx, you need a JDM civic/crx ZC. I might be wrong, someon who really knows correct me.

Although this is correct, the pre 90 D series will not bolt into the CRX. You have to use the JDM ZC

Yeah the pre-90 teg motor has a different mount mounting place on the motor itself. The jap zc is in the normal spot to bolt into the crx/civic.. :spin:
