    Phil, you are going to love your ZX Turbo they can be rocket ships. You said that you were not sure if it was a factory engine or not. Look at the numbers cast in the head. If is a P-90 or P-90A it is a turbo head P-79 it is a NA head. Sounds like you are on the right track. I am not a ZX guy I drive a 240 but like all these cars , when they age they need some care. If it was my car , I would replace all the rubber fuel hoses. Make sure you buy the correct rated hoses. Also replace all the vacuum hoses as well. Then if you have a problem in these areas in the future you have already eliminated this as a possibility. They likely all need replacing anyway. P-90A head has hydraulic lifters.
    I'd rather die while I am living than live while I am dieing. CZC 1887 IZCC 12602 Member of NorthWest Z Car Club
