no the zc is obd0 your car is obd1. in english, it would be a wiring nightmare

Look at either a mini me swap, a d16z6 head on your block, (cheap, worthless but it will give you an extra little something)

Or look at any of the b series engines, b18b, b16asirII, b18c (3 or 5) must be obd 1 or obd 2, other wise it will be a pain.

its always fun to see how many smileys you can add to the end of your post :axe:

oh yeah, to answer your question. Sometimes, swaps arent worth the time you will put into swapping them. The ZC is one of them, IMO, in a sol anyways. D16z6 if youre cheap and dont mind being slow, but a little faster than you are now. B series is a good choice. H22 would be nice in a sol. F22=worthless

dont bother with the ZC in your car ... if you want an inexpensive engine that is good for turbo then get an LS engine (B18B) it will drop right in and be a hell of a lot better than a ZC


ps: stop with the smilies

you will need a del sol VTEC rear mount (i think) or aftermarket (hasport etc)
you will need a del sol VTEC shift linkage
everything else you need will come with the swap



ddr????


and its annoying as fuck to see a shit load of smilies on every post... if you continue to do it your posts will be edited or deleted

NOOOO... you need a b-series hydro tranny. the b18b will not work with your stock tranny.

b-series parts wont go on a d-series and vice versa. :)

Since i dont see you finding a del sol vtec shifter linkage, you have to modify the one you have.

I said i dont see you finding one from a Del Sol VTEC (they came with the b16a3 factory). They are not a common find. So to stick a b-series into your car, you have to modify the shift linkage you have now to make it work. They also stopped making them (del sol vtec shift linkages) so you can't goto Honda or a parts store and get one.

I just finished (finally!) doing my swap. I went to Honda in Galveston and they ordered, even overnighted the shift linkages to me. They still make them, you just have to ask for the '94 del sol Vtec.

Learn something everyday, Did they just use that in Europe or was that used in other countries?

The other thing if it was just a EDM, finding a EDM in america is kinda rare.

No zc's here after 91.And during the 88-91 they had switched from the zc stamp to D series.

well i have a good job and i figure that i would rather spend the money and get something factory that will do the job right rather then rig it up and have something wrong later. I live down near Galveston, and it was around 150 overnight shipped to the dealer.
