    well i already have the rex with the lsv....i just got some xtra cash; i can spend 3.5k. on the hatch (1999)...

    i was thinking......b16 complete swap from hmotors: B16A 92-95 (SiR-II) Complete Change Over Price: $ 2250.00 Plus shipping and handling

    http://www.hmotorsonline.com/shop/sc2000se...page&item=30005

    with a obd2-obd1 harness and (mount kit ?) then buying an ls/crv block and just do the lsvtec swap.....

    but i was wondering if there was a place to buy a 99-00 usdm si motor...in h-motors they only carry 92-95...... i want the 99-00 so i dont have to buy a mounting kit or the harness.....


    what to do??????

    I would keep your 99 stock and keep playing with the rex if you're happy with the rex then save the money.

    Maybe turbo your existing motor. Or maybe turbo your CRX. But like Jeffie said if your happy with your rex and you dont really feel like putting a snail on your hatch then do the swap. Somthing is beter then nothing you know.

    werd. having 2 project cars and no 3rd for a daily driver sucks. take it from me.

    throw an LS block in the crx. do some H/C pistons and some head work, and you'll have a high 12 low 13 sec car for sure.

    saving is good.
    2 projects and no daily reliable transportation is not.
