    I have a 90 CRX with a blown motor but from what I can tell everything else seems to be alright. By alrigth I mean its not gunna klill it if I don't replace right now. found a motor for 600, rebuilt and It's being shipped in from mesa, arizona.

    I've never put in a motor before and I was wondering if anyone had any tips for me. Pitfalls things to look out for and adive on the easiest way to get it done. I wanted to go B16A1 like my last crx but the engine is too far out of my budget right now.

    Which combo?

    Which combo are you going with a6/y8 -or- a6/z6 -or- other?. This will better my helping skills especially if it's a d16y8 because I am doing the exact swap on my d16a6. Take care, buddy.

    Z6 FTW! Y8's spin bearings. Z6's are easier to put in, wiring wise. I'm 15 years old and properly put in a D16Z6 into my EF hatch.

    If you use the a6 block you will not spin a bearing it is the y8's that are notorious for spinning bearings. BUT, to be honest the d16z6 head is A LOT easier to install than a y8 head!.

    If you could, I would try to get a hold of a jdm d15b head. It's the same as the d16z6 but with a more aggressive cam...

    Does the JDM d15b have better head flow?. The d(15)b means 1.5L, the d(16)y8 means 1.6L.
