    If you need to ask, don't try.

    every site has its flamers. what there geting at is that would be a pain in that ass install. custom motor mounts, tranny mounts, wiring, ecu, axles ect. not to mention if you did do it rwd with custom drive shaft, tunnling, rear end, suspension ect. dont get me wrong, it would be amazing to see done but for the price you could easly do a honda swap of some type and get close if not more hp then with the rotary and alot less pain in your ass. ^_^

    let me raise a few points

    1)if you want a rotary, buy an rx-7
    2)if you can't afford an rx-7, you can't afford what it will cost if you to get one in your crx
    3)if you want the power of a rotary, get a b-series
    4)if you want a 2 seater and rwd, get an s2k
    5)if you know it's possible, show us. nobody does it because it's not worth it.
    6)sometimes originality isn't worth the work and money
    7)rotaries are overrated.

    Hey, Its hard finding a Rotary Civic or CRX, but it has been done and you don't need rwd for it. Plus its quite cheap it just depends on what engine your putting in, the 12A is cheap. Here in New Zealand is a Rotary Civic and it uses a Toyota Corona gearbox and its front wheel drive here is the link >>> Mazda Rotary Civic 1989 for sale - TradeMe.co.nz - New Zealand

    Why customize a car for a motor that blows up with any bump in boost?

    The harness should have a ground. Or else vtec won't even activate. I learned the hard way and ended up having 130HP

    ive seen it done in an EF hatch. 12A . works with an old late 70's early 80's yota fwd tranny. its not a popular swap but has been done b4. kinda like a 20b in a hachi roku, rare. 13b'sin ae86's are becoming common.
