    B and I were talking the other day about motor swaps.

    91 CRX DX = D15B2 ( D series motor)
    94 Del Sol = D16Z6 (D series motor)

    A different D series can be put in each and bolts up no problem
    ie I can take a D16Z6 and drop in the Rex or I can get a D16A and drop it in either etc... without having to buy aftermarket motor mounts of fabrication

    know here's the kicker.
    Why can you drop a B Series in the Del Sol , no motor mounts need etc..
    but a CRX needs aftermarket motor mounts.

    What's different between the two. is it possible to use the motor mounts and frame mounts from a del sol in a crx and make it possible to just drop a b series in a rex ??

    are you saying that if a sol came with a d16z6, you could use those same mounts to drop in a b16?

    we were talking- and i was like WTF.

    I have a d16z6 in my 5th gen
    Jeff swapped a d16z6 into his 4th gen, no mount kit.
    I am going to put the LS in- its known fact- no mount kit.

    So if b series works in 5th, and 5th gen dseries works in 4th, WHY doesnt b series work in 4th?

    its like a relational thing here...

    so i can use my stock mounts to put a b16 in my 5th gen?

    maybe they wont work because of the clearance on the sides. even after you get a b series mount kit for a 4th gen, dont you still have to bang on the inside of the wheel well?

    i got it- the mount kit manufacturers knew they would fit with no mounts- but didnt tell anybody, its all a big conspiracy to get money for hasport. And until now, everybody automatically assumed that they wouldnt fit...bahahahaa

    only possibilites:

    1. Conspiracy ;) :D :ph34r:

    2. Your ls swap is not going into the sol

    3. A d15b7 is not going into the crx

    I dont know about you guys, but my vote is for the conspiracy :blink:
