I know what a dohc is (dual over head cam).........I was just looking to get a crx and putting in a b16 (sir engine) and I saw a crx for cheap with a zc engine but no wiring harness so I needed to know about the harness.........like where to get one.........I might just get it to pull the zc and put in a sir engine.

here is the listing for it

Comment: Good exterior, mint interior, 1.6L DOHC ZC engine, ZC tranny, racing clutch, not running, needs wiring harness, as is. 199,000 km.

The zc was a dohc non vtec 1.6 that honda made for the older integras, 88-89, i think.
Best place to ask for specific honda questions, go to honda-tech.com. They are arses, but the info is good.

if I just went to the junkyard and told them the info would the have one?

It was made for the integra, you would need one from an itegra of that year. But to be certain, honda-tech has ALOT of threads on the zc, they might be able to help.

ZC's are 130hp 1.6L DOHC non-VTEC four cylinders. they were used a lot in japan, and a similar engine was used in US spec integras of the time period.

on the 88-91 civic/crx Si, the ZC will bolt/wire right up with no modifications, but on the DX, HF, and base models you will need Si harness and axles.

i dont know how hard the harness is to come by in a junkyard or something, but the whole engine swap only costs about $500USD.

i would say stick with the ZC if at all possible. i know the B16 guys make more power and have the VTEC thing workin for them, but look at it this way: you can buy a greddy turbo kit for the '92-'95 SOHC cars for about $1500 and retrofit it to the ZC on the cheap.

the same kit for a B16 would cost around $2200, and chances are the VTEC will be disabled anyway. i dunno, just my $0.02

hondas suck sorry=(
to each his own.

you cant argue with the fact that the honda is the new mustang 5.0 tho(ie: cheap to go fast)

HEHEHEHE, uncle jo said hondas suck. Thats funny. I personally think Duratrax sucks since this IS and R/C board. If this was a boating board, I would say personal paddle boats suck, cause they dont go fast for the amount of power put in. If this was a Christmas board, I would say real trees suck, I prefer it to be alive than in a house dead. I could go on, but this IS an R/C board.
to each her own.
