    try checking your distributor and the ignitor inside it...the backfiring sounds like the dizzy or the timing, and since u said u checked the timing, it must be the dizzy...also check your plugs too. it seems to be an ignition related problem to me...oh and check to see if u are getting fuel and spark.

    u need a motor :( sorry bud but 0 compression usually = hole in the piston, rings blown, something very bad because a motor that at least runs should have a minimum of i think 60psi, maybe a little lower but 0 is not good at all, its very bad news. maybe its time for a new motor? pm me if you need one

    yea the d16a1 will drop right in, u just need the axles and ecu, wiring harness, and dizzy, mounts, and shift linkage. i have the pg7 ecu for the d16a1, so pm me if you end up going that route and need it. if you dont want the a1, i have a buddy with a full mini me vtec swap for $650 with everything you need to drop it in, and you wont have to change your mounts or shift linkage. or i have a complete d16z6 vtec motor in my crx ill sell you since i plan to go vtec. the tranny is bad, but i have one to go with it if you want it too...ill take $600 for my whole swap or $450 for just the motor. pm me and we will work out something

    zach, making every post into a FS section is ill-advised. makes it sound like you are just trying to sell something rather than give good advice.

    any d series will drop right in.
    use the same trans and everything you have now. no need to get new axles and everything else unless you are swapping a b series in.

    now, is your car currently running the Dual Point Fuel Injection (only two fuel injectors) or are you running a regular Mulit Point Fuel Injection (regular 4 injector system)?

    look at my history of the threads ive posted, ive always offered help to people, and help includes offering them parts they may need. how is that ill advised when most ppl on here ignore some peoples posts. im just trying to help the fella out. i havent posted any ill advice so why are you trolling me?
