    Ok I have 89 crx si would like to do a mini-me swap. I have a 98 civic ex vtec engine could i do the mini-mw swap. What would I need. i have read about it and people have given me links but , it only describes the mini-me 1.5 civic But i have 1.6 crx si I bet it more compatible and less work. Help is much appreciated if thats how you spell it???

    It's exactly the same as with a 1.5. Exactly.

    If you have the 98 civic ex vtec engine, why not just swap that engine completely instead of doing a mini me?

    i second that. . . its alot easier and mroe reliable (sp?), but yes sohc vtec's are pretty good motors, but they do not compare to b series. . . i used to think they could untill i got one.

    Tell me, what exactly makes it more reliable, hmm? I'd like to see some evidence of a mini-me being unreliable compared to a Y8, especially with the #4 oil starvation issues that occasional Y8's run into...

    Please, enlighten me.
