    i just snagged an 88 CRX DX for 200 bucks, only the guy rear ended sombody and broke the top of the stock radiator(installed a new stock radiator, battery and 4 new tires and im rolling good). since i am swapping in a B16 in a few months is there a better unit OTHER than the Fluidyne replacement one that will fit/work in the crx? maybe from a Teg or Civic Si ?

    nah, your stocker should be fine, the CRX has a much longer radiator than the EG series...maybe upgrade to a new unit with welded end tanks for extra pressure support.

    i was worried about clearance issues, so i was thinking either a low profile FAL unit or switching to a puller style fan!

    a good alternative to spending loads of cash is to just get a rex radiator with welded brass endtanks, and then get some FAL fans..

    Lets not forget that your motor needs to get to operating temperature.

    my bro's crx had a jdm b16a with the stock raidator. it ran just fine for the 2 years he had it, and lets say his car was driven hard and put away wet. so i would say the stock is fine.

    i am leaning more toward Hasport for the mounts, how much are the Place Racing mounts? their site is under construction, or is there somewhere else to buy em?
