what sort of power gain would the ZC cams provide?

Looking athe wiki article for the D16's
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_D_engine#D16A3

ZC (non vtec, dohc)
1988–1989 Power : 120 PS (88 kW) at 6,500 rpm; Torque : 103 lb·ft (14.0 kg/m, 137 Nm) at 5,500 rpm

Compared to the

USDM D16A1
Power: 118 hp (88 kW; 120 PS) at 6,500 rpm
Torque: 14.2 kg·m (139 N·m; 103 lb·ft) at 5,500 rpm

AUDM D16A3
Power: 88 kW (120 PS; 118 hp) at 5,600 rpm
Torque: 140 Nm (14.3 kgm, 103 lbft) at 4,800 rpm

by the numbers assumeing wiki iscorrect, i cant see where the ZC gets a benefit?
im sure im missing something, since i've never driven a ZC or been in a ZC powered car to compare and since so many people desire the ZC there must be something else.
