    Damm...pretty light! .Makes my ek sound like a porker!Whats the "hot ticket" as far as swaps go for the crx? This will be my DD, but with every vehicle I ever bought , it usually falls victim to me wrench'in on it soon or later.

    any b series b16a b18b all are good swaps, but stay away from a prelude and vigor b series there very diffrent,,but other than that all honda motors will fit it just depends how much money you want to spend

    not the b16b because it has a hydro tranny and you will have to convert it. you can do the b16a that is obd0 or the b18a out of the obd0 integras. those are 90-93.

    it's just easier that way. just buy a clip from an importer and have it all there. it seems like he is a honda noob and it would be easier to buy it all together than trying to track down all the different parts.
