Default HEY, Will a ZC fit?

I think I have found an engine for my 88 Civic Hatchback DX. The stock engine is the 1.5 litre SOHC the code is D15B2 I think. Anyway I am looking at getting a Japanese engine from a company called Nagasaki? has anyone heard of it? Are they a good company and will I get a good engine? Im looking at a 1.6 litre DOHC ZC. I am also wondering if that engine will be an easy swap, direct bolt in, or if i will need some modifications or extra parts? Thanks alot any help would be awesome

The swap will be easy but I don't recommend the ZC. unless it's brand new they're horrible on upkeep prices and they break easy.

Just get the sohc zc, its the same thing as an A6, but in answer to your question, yes, its a direct bolt in, the only thing you will have to change is the dpfi to mpfi for the injectors...other than that it bolts right in.

weird......mine came used and took abuse from nitrous and a supercharger for some time......and the person i sold the car to is still giving the engine hell. however i have heard but not experienced that the dohc zc ringlands are rather weak.
