ok so i have already posted some questions in the noob forum here:
http://www.d-series.org/forums/n00b-forum/175545-zc-twin-carb-sohc-motor.html

but now im wanting some help/advice/opinion on which way to go with this motor

Background:
the VIN plateing on the car had the engine listed as the factory engine released with that car in australia with all of the matching dates etc
another strange thing is that the car was a 'GL' but had all of the features and trim of a 'GLi'
(the 'GL' is a low end EG in australia with no power options ie mirrors and door locks are all manaul, very basic trim, only a cassette tape player with only small front speakers and had no tachometer)
the only mechanical problems with it is that it needs a new water pump and a tune-up
the gearbox is the same as the one on my D15b7 and does not have LSD
the original owner is doing a full tear down to chassis restoration and ground up build using an 0bd1 B16a2 from an australian Del Sol so i offered to take this engine off his hands for a carton of coronas and he accepted

the engine was pulled out of an Australian EG4 'Gl' Hatch
quick run down on what we have in Australia:
Low Trim
'91-93 EG3 'Breeze' D13b2 (hatch only)
'94-95 EG4 'Breeze' D15z2 (hatch only)
'91-93 EG4 'GL' D15b4 (hatch and sedan)
High Trim
'93-95 EG4/EG8 'GLi' D15b7 (hatch and sedan)
'93-95 EG8 'VEi' D15z1
'93-94 EG5/EH9 'VTi' D16y1-same as D16z6 (hatch and sedan)
'91-93 EG5/EH9 'Si' D16a8 (hatch and sedan)

Intentions:
my original plans were to use a D16y1/D16z6 head to convert it to vtec and find some nice twin/quad carbs to put on there and put it into a classy hotrod/ratrod kind of EG hatch build
but now im worried that if the engine is so rare i may be ruining it by converting to vtec

does anyone have any experience or thoughts on where to go from here with it?

im in no hurry and have a shed full of parts and other projects to work on - i want to do this right and not rush anything :santa:
thanks in advance :chinese:

p.s. ill take some photos 2moro of the engine and post them up =)

well it did say 'ZC' and the only stamp on the engine is 'ZC' so maybe there should be some clarification there?

where would this belong? - engine building?
