    My son blew the engine in his '97 CRV. Have located 2002 CRV engine. Would it work? Would the computer need to be swapped also? Anything else?

    No, the 2002 CR-V in the US will have a K-Series engine, your son's 1997 has a B-Series.

    You should look for a B-series from a 1996-2001 CR-V.

    98 B20B4 to 99 B20Z

    Sorry for hijacking this thread but I have the opportunity to buy a 98 B20B4 engine and want to know what I would have to do to make this work in my 99 CR-V AWD Manual.
    Thanks,
    Jeff

    climber.. Nothing is needed to do the swap.. just swap the motor out.. make sure you have the intake manifold with you b20b cause it's a different manifold setup on the b20z

    You could do the J swap, or a K swap, if you have a B series CRV should be mostly the same as any into a B series chassis for the particular engine. I always wanted to do a H22 swap into a CRV.
