    question is; what is your budget, and how much power are you looking for?

    i think the 89 integra motors 1.6L DOHC bolt-in and plug right into the stock harness.
    i might be wrong, but somone will correct if im wrong

    PIKS! 86 crxs are hardly ever used for anything other than jump ramp bases at dirt bike courses! lol

    im sorry fucker what did you say?

    a stock 1G CRX even today outhandles most modern sports cars and outsips even the newest hybrids. they are lightweight, sporty, and extremely fun to drive on the road and on a road coarse.

    anyways. a B swap into a 1G is ALOT of work. you may be better off with a D15b or D16z6, but really the easiest/cheapest route is that browntop or the 1G integra motor. ZCs come in both SOHC and DOHC but the SOHC ones are uber rare.
