No. THe reluctor wheel inside the distributor is different.

It is not ghetto to use an A6 (OBD0) distributor on your Z6 (OBD1) motor. It doesn't matter, as long as you (with the Z6) you set the ignition timing correctly. This includes hacking the distributors ears so you can get the correct amount of adjustment needed to set proper timing.

Back to the reason why it's not ghetto.. and it's actually quite proper...

Rule #2989293809.7 in the Honda Vault of Knowledge is to use the distributor generation that matches your ECU's generation.

I.E., OBD0 ECU.. use OBD0 distributor. OBD1 ECU, use OBD1 distributor. This is, again, because of the number of splines on the relutor wheel. The ECU uses the signal generated by the spinning of the reluctor wheel (and the count of the number of times the signal is activated) to dictate firing time. Wrong number of spines for the ECU, wrong firing times. Simple as that..

I'm not sure if it's quite _that_ easy, but, yes, I have heard of people rebuilding distributors.

I have tried swapping the internals from an a6 dizzy to a z6 one...trust me, it's not worth the hassle. The biggest main problem is the bearing...they are 2 different sizes between both dizzys, and when u try to press them apart, usually the reluctor splines get broken off. If you want a better solution, try using a Y8 head instead...a pm6 dizzy bolts right on.
