    You can do any engine, if its not a d series engine be sure to get an auto tranny with it. if its a d series then use your tranny.

    im pretty sure you can get an h22 with a auto tranny and ecu for under $1500 bucks.even with a automatic you would have one quick little crx.

    The zc is a d series so it will work no problem with your current tranny. Are you sure that your crx is an hf and not a dx? I have never ehard of an auto hf.

    ^^^ It can have vtec. There is an sohc vtec version of the zc. It also comes in a dohc non-vtec version.

    also, I'm really damn confused. HF's didn't come with auto trannies. It wasn't an option. Did you or the previous owner swap in an auto tranny?

    I'm pretty sure Honda made a GSR engie with an automatic transmission...I think this engine was only sold in Canada but I'm not sure...if you got a hold of one of those that would be phatty...You'd have one quick little CRX...Keep us updated on what you get...
