    Hello, and Thank You!!

    I am new to Hondaswap.com, but am not new to the Honda scene! :rolleyes:

    Anyways, I'd just like to share that I recently added a 1986 Honda CRX Si to my ever growing Honda family. Currently I own a 93 del Sol Si, and a 90 Civic DX hatch. Previously I have owned an 83 Prelude, 91 Si Hatch, 90 Accord LX, and 2 other 93 del sol S's.

    Both the CRX and Civic DX are bone stock. The del Sol has been slightly modified, but I am not finished with her. Right now shes due for extended storage, and a rebuild. Installed I have a slightly built b18c5 coupled with light suspension mods (Tien S. Tech & Kyb Gr-2). Its going to be daily driven, but Im building it for heavy track use...I love to auto-x with it.

    Well, my purpose here is to gather as much info as I can about my new CRX. Hopefully, I wont change much, but I will be in need of advice as far as modding goes, because I have no clue what to do with it. My intentions were just for gas savings, as Im commuting 50 miles back and forth to work everyday. So I dont want to do much to the CRX. Pics will be up as soon as I aquire said car, just wating on delivery!
