    what year? how is the body? clean title? etc?

    if it's just an integra with a bad engine, it's only worth about $500-$800. I would buy it and put in an ls engine. which you can find for about $700. decent car for $1500.

    screw the motor and the car. you can find a good running, legit ls swap for about $700.

    Yup just after i got my teg my friend found a 92 integra GSR. He was going to get it and i said mine is already cooler anyway :p. We talked with the dealer and he said the engine is leaking oil from a place he cant find and the VTEC wasnt working. That was the reason why it was so cheap. God knows that lies within. He didnt get it.

    I agree with 95b16coupe. Just buy an engine for your CR-X. Putting that D16 into the Integra shell would be more trouble then it's worth...
