I wouldn't say that, my SOHC ZC kicks ass. I was very suprised at the amount of torque it has. When I got my SOHC ZC I was just looking to put a replacement motor in the car. it is a really nice motor and the parts are easy to find as well. I was able to keep up with a B16 CIVIC untill we got to his VTEC, and my revlimiter kicked in.
your choice, just my opinion.
