    The head blew on my 87 crx si, and I plan to replace the engine with an 86-87 integra d16a1, wanting to keep things as simple as possible.

    I haven't swapped liked this before so I'm a little iffy, even after sorting through endless threads.

    Time is not on my side (this is my daily driver) and I need to know exactly what I will need from the teg to make it work. Understandably, the engine and ECU. What else, and what's the biggest thing to look out for during the swap. (IE: The hood hits the valve cover, etc) Do I need the exhaust manifold from the teg? Much fabrication to get it to mate to the crx pipe? Engine mounts stock?

    Thank you for helping. This is my baby, and I want to get it right the first time.

    Yes, but if I'm going to the trouble and expense, may as well do the easiest HP upgrade I can. What I'm hoping is that there isn't that much in the fabrication dept. with the swap I intend.

    well, i'm sure you'd need to make custom mounts to drop a b16 in there.. you could do a d16a1

    So, really, an answer from someone please. Will the 87 teg browntop bolt onto the stock 87 crx si tranny, and do I need the teg manifold? Other than the ecm, what else do I need to bring over?
