the body is a 89-90 crx hf with special mods, for all i know it could be the original block with a vtec swap. the bottom is a sohc zc nonvtec. with a 93 vtec head.

Ok that helped, theres no good tranny to go with just the head tho lol. But the one you want is a 88-91 Si tranny. Thats the best D series cable tranny.

alrite, i just figured that since the configuration was LEGOED together that maybe there was a tranny other than the obvious one that could add some quicker gear shifting, i was hoping maybe you would say an acura or something. guess not. that'll work i guess 'preciate it.

the special modifications are on the cars BODY as previously stated, as in body work? wtf is up with the pink unicorns anyways? the question is about the tranny not a trannie. if you want to see pics got to either my profile or v gallery if you need "visual" clarification. smart guys can figure it out, it would be the car with the obvious "mods" done to the body.

An actual zc tranny? that IS gonna be tough to find, the one i have now im assuming is an a6 but i didnt buy the car from the guy who built it, just the guy he built it for. so for right now my best choice would be an si tranny. alrite thnx

REALLY? I didn't know this... cuz I'm about to get a car with a zc swap in it... would you suggest switching to a different head like a z6 or d15b? Or keep it as is... keep in mind I'm going to boost it also...

Yea man, you just gotta ignore the jerks and prove your not here to bs anyone or something... your questions seem to be legit to me, you just gotta lighten up some dude.

a full ZC is fine

its the ZC head itself that required honda to throw terribly designed dome pistons to make decent compression.

if you want high compression in a ZC you will be running any D series head.

a head off a d15b2/7 or d16a6 is the closest thing to the sohc non-vtec ehad and its a nice compression increase

But if you are going boost, I think a Z6 or Y8 head will serve you best. If you go the cheap route of Vitara pistons, I would go with the d16y8 head since it has the smallest combustion chamber (makes up for the vitara super big dish)

but if you actually get real turbo aftermarket pistons, the Z6 head flows the best, and without any machinging, tehcnically should grab best POTENTIAL power.

Im no genius, so I might not be accurate. research will show youmuch better then I ever can!

Yea, I haven't actually done any research on it yet because I haven't even driven this car yet and don't know how strong the motor is if I'll actually go through with boosting it. I just saw your comment and thought I would ask lol

I'm not planning on building the block/head either if I do, just a 57 trim on low boost and a good tune will be good since it'll still be my daily. That setup SHOULD spool at high rpm's leaving me not going into boost a lot daily driving it... correct me if my theory is wrong but that's the plan so far.

Thanks a lot for all the info and help man!

Sorry to thread jack ninja, proceed
