ok i have a 1990 CRX that i bought with a ZC swap but all the information that i'm finding about the ZC says its a 1.6 ....well what's getting me is that my motor has a 1.5 head on it cuz the plugs are on the top...so i'm curious now if ZC makes a 1.5? or if its just a 1.5 head on the 1.6 block...an if it is that, what would be the purpose of that? is it better compression or sumthing? i can't find any information about this anywhere so hopefully sumone here can help me out...thanx



ps- 1.5 head on 1.6 block......ugh i don't get it but the car moves...
 
there are zc's that are 1.5...its the equivalent to the d16a6 with a lil more hp...there is also a 1.5 zc with vtec as well..now...this is what you cannot do...use a DOHC bottom end and an sohc head with out modification...and vise versa....thezcr.com ownes all

its sohc 1.5 head... the block says ZC..so i figured it was a 1.6...sorry imma honda beginner

so they make a 1.5 vtec? if it was a vtec would it say it on the valve cover? or what would defanitely tell me that it is? when i rev it up past 4 it kinda sounds like it could be...but its also got that destinctive crx sound too so i'm not fur sure
