    92-95 hatch would be lightest (wiring wont be too bad)

    96-00 would be easier

    2nd gen teg would be a pain in the ass (tranny and wiring issues)

    thank you kylemarhx, yea i think that would be the best car cuz i would swap a b16 or a GSR on a crx but not a typeR, i know the crx is really light but i would feel kind stupid if i had an engine that was worth 10 times more than the car.i'm geting a typeR cuz it's the best price i have ever seen on a typeR engine
