Default ZC swap?

If a car has a ZC engine swap, and I wanted to do more beefing up to the engine, what would the engine code be when looking for parts?

Well be more specific...I am gunna asume you are talking about DOHC because thats the tricky one.

ZC takes parts from like 4 different engines...


88-89 integra engine

88-91 civic/crx engine

and 90 prelude 2.0 engine..


take a look at this

If it has 2 cams and it says ZC...its dohc ZC...

the picture in my avitar is a DOHC ZC..it has a weird looking valve cover. If its a SOHC ZC it looks like any other honda D engine.
