    I have come across a 91 crx hatchback as well as a b20a5 prelude engine, what is the possibility of this swap being effective or even possible, I am not a Honda guy and know nothing about this, will the b20a5 bolt up in the crx or do I need custom motor mounts as well as a different tranny setup? simply I am an idiot so just answer please and dont be rude, thanks for your time.

    You'll need custom mounts- the B20A5 from the Prelude is kind of considered a "bastard child" in the Honda swap world. Most people try to take it out in favor of another engine to stuff into a Prelude, not use it as a candidate to put into a CRX. It's a little odd compared to the rest of the B series engines, so there's very little swap or aftermarket support for it. The B16 and B18 engine swaps are a lot more common, and not very expensive.
