    i recently picked up a 1990 crx off of a friend for 500 dollars. i already own a 1997 acura integra gsr that is in good condition except for it need a front bumper, core support, hood and winshield. i was wondering if i should swap the wiring, computer, motor, tranny, shift linkage and axles all over onto the crx or should i leave them on the gsr? i would also take the meshy rims and seats i have a friend who will do the swap for $300 and the shell of the integra after i get everything i want out of it? what should i do?

    if the crx is in good condition (no major rust, body straight, etc), then i would definitely swap over the stuff from the gsr. if the crx is rough then it would probably be more worthwhile to just fix the wrecked integra and have a nice car.

    /\ what he said. only I will add factor in the interior condition of both cars. that is a big resale point, my car has a nearly flawless interior and a fair (no rust but faded paint and a dent in one of the doors) body. I see the interior all the time so it needs to not be a pile.

    dont mess with the gsr motor, just keep it whole. if you want you could put the type R transmission on there, the LSD and the shorter gearing would be sweet.
