no 1: it wont fit
2: thats a 12 valve slow a** engine.

any civic D" series engine will fit in your car real easy
or a dohc zc engine from a old school integra.

are you wanting more power?
or something cheap and easy to install?

okay, i was just wondering... so i should just get rid of the a20?
an im just tryin to get more power, without forking out 2 grand..
my 89 civic hatch d15b2 i think... 5 speed, gets ****in smoked by 1.9l escorts...
idk what up with it.. like it wants to go, but as soon as i drop it a gear an it gets around 5500-6500 RPM the check engine light comes on.. but goes right back off after i shut the car off an turn it back on.. any clue what that'd be?
whats a ZC set up?
