    wait...is it an 89 or an 87?? your topic says 89. there is a big difference in those years.

    if its an 89, u can put in the B16A1 (SiR) engine, or the B18c (bigger and more powerful...but more expensive too) those are common engine swaps for 2nd gen crx's. i think a little bashing of the engine bay may be required for the B18c, but i beleive the B16 would slip right in, since it came standard in the japanese crx.

    i would ...and will be getting a B16 cause it has the most aftermarket support.
