    i have a D16A1 1.6L L DOHC 86-89 Integra motor in my shed now i know it bolts right into my car.(83 crx with 1.5cc pgm fi) but i have been offered a B20A5 2.0L DOHC non-VTEC 87-91 Prelude motor. What motor am i best with and why?

    thanks Craig New Zealand

    d16a1.

    the prelude motor has this random ass tilt that makes it difficult to bolt in. the integra motor is an easier swap that wont require custom mounts. from what ive read, the a1 is the best swap for a d15b2 crx.

    D16A1 for the win

    88-89 might be a wiring nightmare though
