    So what is it carbeurated? I dont think there was a carbed 90 crx. maybe u mean DPFI, insted of MPFI. If thats the case, It might, just put the motor in, and see if it fits, otherwise, put the airfilter on the end of the intake plenum(ghetto rig till u get a new intake for dpfi crx), and order the new one.

    If you swap intakes, you have to do the dpfi to mpfi. Just search that on the web. You can also do a minime swap. search,search,search! good luck :thumbsup: Also, that isnt a carb., its a throttlebody. There are 2 injectors on the front. One should be brown and one green.

    thats i wasnt sure, he said it wasnt fuel injected, and other than fuel injected there is carbeurated.

    Its hard to understand what he is asking but if he has a 91 crx si and put the 1.5 liter d series in it the mpfi will bolt right up and he will have to use the si distributor. No need to do an mpfi swap since the si already is mpfi. I dont think the 1.5 is carburated, its probably dpfi.

    Im planning on doing something similar to this, so here's my thoughts. You'll need a new Intake Manifold Gasket, get one for the SI intake manifold. Then bolt it on. then bolt up your SI distributor and your are done.

    <_< Ok, I guess nobody read his question. YES! You can use the 1.5 motor to replace your blown 1.6 motor. Just swap the manifolds and distributor and everything is exactly the same!
