Default ZC into 96 civic LX

Hi everyone, my names John. Im new to the site but not new to hondas but i need some help here
My daily driver, a 96 civic lx (d16y7) was ran without oil and spun a bearing to say the least.
The best deal i could find was a ZC motor from a local engine shop.
After doing some research i havent found a swap like this
i hope i didnt waste my time with this motor, i can still bring it back at this point
But if anyone has a thread or some insight on what will make this work, is greatly appreciated.
This is my daily, and still has an Auto trans

what generation of zc is it? if you do not know, check the dohc zc specs mods parts list thread in this subforum here.

for it to drop in to your 96, it will have to be the 4th gen zc as the 3rd gen mounts are different.

did the motor come with the distributor and wiring harness?

your auto trans will bolt up, but it will feel sluggish, i doubt you will find an auto ecu for it if it is obd1. chip an auto p06

Just checked the motor, the engine block says ZC
But it doesnt match any of the motors in the parts/mods thread because it the valve cover looks like a normal single cam cover

you will need to swap out the dizzy on the zc motor or wire the zc dizzy to your engine harness....im not sure what dizzy will fit/work on the zc motor...

if the alt plug is different on the zc motor then your stock motor you can just swap the alt from the old motor to the zc motor...

if the zc motor doesnt have a crank sensor you will need to do the crank sensor trick to bypass it...

the only other thing as far as wiring goes is the o2 sensors...you should be able to use your old exhaust manifold on the zc motor and that will take care of that..

all other wiring should be plug and play..

You may want to swap over your stock injectors also. Your ecu wants 190cc and there's no telling what's on that motor, they could be 240's.

Reuse you stock mounts.
