    Well, a few of my friends an I are looking into an 85' crx for 450$, because we need a new project since we finished mine. What we want to do is go B20 in a gutten rex and see what we can do, but I was wondering how much work it would be to put a B20 in? What I am worried about is that we would have to buy custom new mounts, and that would be an extra 300$ that we don't have, or want to spend on something else (like a turbo manifold.) Well, any help would be appreciated, and if you have something to chip in about what a B20 rex is like that'd be appreciated too,

    Thx

    Ian

    If the CRX isn't an Si model, forget it. All the 1st gen CRX's are carburated cars, adn the wiring would have to be completely redone, along with SOOO many sensors needed, etc.

    Not to mention the fuel system to support high fuel pressures in the fuel rail...

    I don't mind the wiring so much, as this is a project car, but on the fuel system couldn't I just take the stuff from the half car I'm getting the engine from? Also, what sensors would be needed that didn't come with the swap? I'm asking because none of us have done any work on first gen rex's before.

    don't forget the axles and shift linkage from hasport those are expensive as hell
    If you really wanna hook up your ride go to www.redpepperracing.com it is a very informative site that tells you everything you need to know about 1g crx's

    Not that the are the only way to go,but they are the proven best,and worth any extra you may pay over the other mounting systems.
