What oil pan and crank pulley does the DOHC ZC use? I'm guessing since it's a D block, any D series oil pan would work, but I'd like to get confirmation.

Also, I've got a question on axles. There seems to be a lot of mixed info on axles to use with a ZC swap. Some say 90-93 Teg axles, some say 88-91 Teg axles, etc... Does the USDM Si transmission bolt up to the DOHC ZC block? (for some reason I doubt it does) If so, can't I just use USDM stock Si axles?

If your going to use the stock ZC header you need the ZC pan, the hump area is wider for the 2 pipe downpipe section. If your going aftermarket header Si pan should be fine.

Pulley I'm not completly sure on but there deffinetly are 2 different ones, snout size wise.

Any D-series trans bolts up using whatever axles it had. Now if your using the ZC trans you need 90-93 teg axles.
Personally I suggest the Si trans before a stock Zc trans. The final drive in the ZC is the same as the DX
Best one is the Zc with Si final drive if you have the means.

If using the ZC transmission, you will need 90-93 Integra axles and a ZC Civic/Crx intermediate shaft.

The Zc WILL bolt up to your USDM Si transmission, you will be able to use your stock Si axles, making that combo a drop in and bolt up swap.

That right there sounds like the intelligent (read as easy for a noob) thing to do.

Now I jsut need to know what crank pulley to use and I should be good to go... I think. :rolleyes1:

Use any crank pulley you got for a D series. Don't forget the little key or you won't be spinning anything :p .

I have a few oil pans around... one is off my ZC, I can't tell which is which though. I think the pans are the same.

I asked on d-series too, and they said the ZC oil pan holds 1/2 quart more oil, but both will work. So I imagine there's a slieght difference in either shape or depth.

Drop me a PM if U want to sell one, I just want to make sure there's a whole motor if I decide to install it.

I can definitely let one go... I think I have a crank pulley too... I'm just not sure what size it is
If I'm not mistaken, any D-series crank pulley will work, a stock one would be fine. I'm not looking to boost it or gain a ton of HP. The rated 130hp is more than enough for me. (for now)

There are 2 sizes of crank pulleys. The overall diameter is the same, but where it connects to the crankshaft is different.

Ah... I'll have to hold up on the pulley till I have it here and can measure the shaft diameter, and see how it connects.

Shoot me a PM about teh oil pan... :)

I'll keep that in mind as I get further into this.

I know I'm going to need a oil pan and a pulley for sure. From there, I'm not sure what else I need. I have an ecu from an 89 teg, but I'm not sure if that'll work. I've got a lot of reading ahead of me before I dive into this.

Nope, I saw it. It's very understandable.
There weren't any points to debate, so I didnt think it needed a quote. :wink:

I think I'm going to go ahead and use the Si transmission, so I dont have to mess with axles.
Will the ZC gears drop into an Si trans housing?

The engine doesn't have a header on it, so I'm most likely going with an aftermarket Si header. Either oil pan will work fine from all the reading I've been doing.
