    how hard is it to fit a h22 turbo into a crx shell. i dont care if it is streetable or not. i want speed. what do i need to fit it in. i know a mount kit and wiring but how about the turbo set up. will i need to do a lot of fab work to get it in?? thanx

    it is going to cost alot and will be a tight squeeze, you might even have to make the bay a little bigger

    probably, i have never seen a 1st gen with an H22. Then again i have not seen that many 2nd gens with H22s in them. That is why i say you should do it.

    i dont know about the turbo??
    ive seen a H22 ina REX and its TIGHT literally
    no a/c ... p/s... battery in the trunk...

    if you added a f-a-l fan and ultra slim radiator it should work..

    Good luck. The H22 into the CRX is a very tight fit. It'll work, but it does require some engine bay 'reshaping'. If you want to fit a turbo in there, you're probably going to be cutting out some sheet metal.
