    I have a 1991 Honda CRX DX with the 1.5 liter, and I have recently bought a 1989 Honda Prelude 2.0si. I was wondering if anyone knew what I would need to do to put the 2.0 in my CRX.

    To start off the prelude motor is a B20A5 (135hp) so you're going to need motor mounts , ecu, tranny, axles, etc... and you'll have to re-wire the crx wiring harness.

    in all honesty I think it would be a hell of alot easier to install a ZC

    The b21 and b20 both suck some major cock, dude... It most likely isnt worth it... but good luck

    Either the ZC for some quick easy power (though replacement parts are kinda screwy) or if you are in it for the long haul go with a b16a. I have one in my 89 hf and love it
