    My dad gave me an old 1985 CRX DX that has been sitting in our garage for the past 15 years. the motor is all apart (stock EW-1 if i recall correctly) and i dont think it's worth putting back together, so i wanted to do a swap in it. Now, my dad has tons of experience with Hondas, so i was thinking of finding an old D series and just rebuilding it (Probably cheaper than a B series). I know I need a wiring harness, ecu, axles, brakes, and fuel pump. is there anything else I need? can i do something reasonable with my budget?

    D16A1 swap...$1500 is plenty...best thing to do is find a complete donor car
    -you'll need the interior harness

    for the carb to fuel injection swap you'll also need a few additional parts:Si fuel tank, fuel pump, return line...or rig your gas tank for the return line

    OK so find the motor from any 86-89 Integra + those other parts? How is the availability of after market parts for this engine (D16a1)? IE exhaust, cams, chip etc?
