    I know this sounds stupid butt!! Dizzy in 1990 crx si locked up. new one is $160.00 but I aim to swap motor soon anyway. I have a 1989(still obd0) dx dizzy that is good but the plug is different. can i wire it in just to use save the 160.00 for later. looks like it has one less wire than the si .

    No the dx dizzy won't work. The si dizzy has a cyl sensor in it and the dx dosen't.
