    well with that price range the fastest will be a turbo d15b, also it would be the easiest. next easiest will be the b series motors they will all go in the same, but stay away from the prelude b series there way diffrent. to get a b16 in the crx it will take about 1200-1500 bucks, for the sir 1 b16a for the sir2 b16a it will take a little more money.but down the road if your gona build the motor up i would get the b16 a
