    I have a friend who is selling an 87 crx si because of a hole in the side of the block and i was wondering if i can take the block out of my del sol and put it in the rex.

    My del sol is a 96 S model with a d16y6 and it's OBD2 and the rex is OBD0

    I am wanting to know what all i would have to do in order to do this, if its even possible?

    I have the honda engine swaps book by aaron bonk but it isn't to detailed on this. It says i would have to backdate the sensors and computer by swapping dizzy, o2 sensor and injectors OBD0 status may be retained.

    So to me that means it will work as long as i use the head that is already in the rex and get rid of the CPK sensor on the new block.

    Please LMK if i am wrong any help is greatly appreciated

    The 1st gen teg (86-87, D16a1) is a pretty much "bolt in" for the SI. Heck you could even swap out the whole front suspension cradle with it if you want power steering.
    That's what was offered in the JDM ones back then.

    I'm not too knowledgeable on the later stuff. Sorry.

    I just need to know if the block will bolt up to the tranny and if the engine mounts are all the same on D series

    the 88 and up D-series engines will not bolt into the 1g CRX - the mounts are different - the engine won't bolt to the 1g transmission - the newer engines also have electronic ignition timing where the 1g has vacuum advance ignition, which would mean a bunch of wiring
