Edit: Holy damn I misread that. I thought you said someone told you that you can get a turbo manifold for it. Who said you couldn't get one? As far as I know any D series turbo manifold will work as a mere bolt-on. In fact, all D series intake and exhaust manifolds are interchangeable, and with that said, most throttle bodies from D or B series motors are interchangeable as well.
A DOHC ZC is more or less a D16A1, and aftermarket support for that is plentiful. Don't let the availability of the ZC motor fool you. It can scoot with the best of them with a proper build.
For a reference, my friends near stock ZC with matching tranny does 130 in third gear with RPMs to spare. And I can vouch for that. :eek
my friend has that engine and hes happy with it, he used to have a sohc vtec and he went to that and he likes it way more. they say those have 135-145 hp stock so after you do some work you will probly caught up with the gs-r
