i don't know much about the 4 spd, but i am pretty sure your could swap it out with the 5 spd with minimal work. you might need the 5 spd linkage and shifter assemblies which wouldn't be expensive

if you intend on using the zc tranny(dohc zc) you will be required to swap out your hubs as the zc axle splines are larger than the std model. id personally recomend an si tranny and if your good with your hands build a zc/si hybrid and this will still allow you to use your std model axles. your 4spd linkages are the same as the 5spd linkages so no worries about that. also(still assuming your talking dohc zc) you will need to do a mpfi conversion. your dpfi intake manifold will not bolt up to the dohc zc head.

If you are going to get the zc combo with zc tranny you will need 90-93 integra axles.
