ZC in 88 HB


Junior Member
Hey everyone,
I bought an 88 hb about 3 months ago and i have been saving up to go ls/vtec but my friend just purchased a 94 hb with a zc motor in it.... He is swapping this motor for a b16 and offered to sell me the zc with the tranny ecu axles and help me do the swap for $300.
I have 2 questions for you guys. Will it work? and is it worth it? Also its not my main car and i have all the time in the world.

First thing, 94 Civic = OBD-1, 89 HB = OBD-0... this is your first problem you have to convert OBD's.

Second thing, 94 Civic = Hydro clutch 89 = Cable, you eithe rhave to find a 88-91 Dx-LX-EX transmission or convert to Hydrolic.

Will it work, Yes, is it worth it, Yes. So there ya go.
