OK i would like to know what would be the a relative easy swap for an 87 CRX si that i could turbo
what about a b16
^$600 for mounts and alot of wiring
D16A1 from an 86-87 integra...I've got one in my 1g and it pulls like hell
^^^If youve got a big budget than shoot for that option.
But if money is limited try a DOHC D16 it would be much cheaper to go this route.
But youve got to remember to, is that CRX's are light and it isnt going to take much to get it moving. If you go with say a DOHC D16(i believe ZC) out of an 86-89 Integra, youll get 118hp. which doesnt seem like much but put it in the lightweight CRX and its gonna go. Homemadeturbo that D16 and youll have a little rocket.
Heres some links for you about the D series swaps int your car:

What about an b16a obd0, so i will need no wiring right?
The 86-87 D16A1 and the 1st gen ZC (browntop) are the only things you won't need extensive rewiring for
I put a b16a into my 89 Crx si and all you need is a little bit of wireing its the easy part
89 and 87 are VERY different
I spazed out for a bit
yea im still leanin toward the frist gen b16
If you plan on turbo, dont waste your money on the B16. Friend of mine rebuilt his stock 87 Si motor, and boosted. He makes 200HP all day long, and that car is an absolute rocket. If you absolutely have to swap it though, I agree with these guys on the D16 from then integra, a B16 isn't really worth the trouble in the first gen's.
so around how much would it cost for a 89 crx to get enge swap and turbo?
start your own thread and you might get some help
D16A1 for the absolute budget win
