    you might want to upgrade your car first...

    the first gen crx's are nice, but very limited parts and shit for them...

    don't get me wrong, it would fly... but why?
    you could do a much cheaper D16A1 first gen integra twin cam swap for very cheap with impressive results...

    just fix it and get it home, you will need a lot more than just the motor swap to get this running...

    also need mounts and axles, DPFI->MPFI if you don't already have MPFI, just a whole lot of shit that makes it not worth it

    but why an 86 crx?
    do you have any rot?
    do you ever plan on exterior mods?
    do you want better handling than your torsion bars in front can offer?
    there are too many reaosns NOT to dump 4500 into this old of a car...

    and a B16 will not yield 200 horses...

    you should do a D16A1 swap or DIY turbo...

    ok, well do whatever you want, but i still think you're out of your god damn mind to drop 4500 into that car...

    you will never get the money back out, and you will most likely never get the car to meet your goals... suspension is ok for stock, but needs major mod to make it into a good autox...

    so you knowingly want to choose a car with TORSION bars for front suspension as a full race car???

    hmmm, so what sort of mechanic background do you have?

    yea, i know they race them too...

    and as an owner of a first gen crx that i have done a motor swap in myself, not a shop, i think you are fucking crazy to dump that much money in a car that old and lacking the aftermarket support that you can have from a newer chassis

    do me a favor and just THINK about it, thats all i ask... any rational person would reconsider before making such an investment...

    thank god i talked some sense into you :)
    not trying to bust your balls but 4500 is a lot to dump into an old car...

    check out the refrence section, articles, read only, swap articles

    first gen crx FAQ

    the 86-89 integras had a twin cam D series motor thats an ideal canidate for a first gen crx swap
    the 86-87 had a brown valve cover and netted 113 horses, which is 25 horse over stock, and the 88-89 had a black valve cover and netted 118 horse...
    you can either motor but you MUST use the 86-87 distributor and ecu cause thats the only years that had vacuum advanced ignition...
