    What sort of engine swaps can be made on an 87 CRX? I have a really good chance at buying one for $500, but only if I can drop maybe a B16A2 in it..

    i would not drop a b16a2 in an 87 crx... the wiring would be the biggest pain in the ass of all time. instead i would drop a b16a (first gen) and if you want the compression of the second gen b16's i would put 10.4:1 or even ctr pistons in it, and more aggressive cams... there is a guy who drives around here with a 86crx, with a b16a, and he has ctr pistons and skunk2 stage2 cams, and he hauls like no other....

    JDM 92-95's compression is 10.4:1 a little better.

    I am also new to my crx.

    Is the 1G b16a1 a direct swap? Or am I forced to buy the Hasport mounts?

    And no computer problems, correct?

    NO THE B16a does'nt just drop in you need motor mount kit from hasport $650 custom shift linkage $200 custom axles $300 and maybe a ecu conversion system?
    these are estimated from the site itself the (last time i checked anyways). you'll probably find better prices at other vendors. unless you are ready to spend mad cash don't go this way. get a D16 from a 86-89 teg cause it drops straight in, ONLY USE THE 86-87 DISTRUBITOR AND ECU cause it only works with your vehicle. but if you wanna go with a b series engine may i suggest the b18a from the 90-93 teg more torque and more cheap and i find v- tec to be highly overrated do you really want rev high @6000,7000 or even 8000 for type r's just to go to the grocery store?
    you could find info from a back issue of sport compact car when i get the info i'll let you know and if you wanna go turbo go to homemadeturbo.com title explains itself
    if you are intrested in body kits
