    Hello everyone,
    I just got an 88 crx hf about a month ago. The car is extremely slow and I'm planning to do a b16a swap. I was thinking about buying the whole front clip from a RHD crx sir (everything from the middle of the car foreward except body parts). The problem I have is that I read on another site that I wouldn't have to buy motor mounts if I swap out the cross members. Is this true? If anyone can help me out it will be greatly appreciated. Thanx.

    John

    Buy Hasport or HCP engineering mounts and you will save yourself alot of headaches

    you would still have to use a mount kit unless you cut your entire front end of at the firewall and weld on the JDM clip in its place. Get a mount Kit. either Hasport or Place Racing.

    Don't use any mounts besides hasport. I've heard bad things about HPC and place racing mounts. You get what you pay for; I've never heard anyone complain about hasport mounts.
