the ZC will fit in that hatchy you have, i believe the tranny is the same (s20) just make sure if your car is cable, that the tranny is cable, which it should be, or if you got a hydralic, find a hydraulic one.

any d series tranny will bolt up to the zc ...
92-95 are obd1 and i think they are all hydro trannys
88-91 are obd0 and the trannys are cable

so to put the obd0 zc in an obd1 civic youll need to use your hydro tranny, your motor mounts and then you will have to convert the wiring over.(there are lots of write-ups about converting obds so just search)
