    if i swap a b16a1 into my 89 crx dx, will i need to get stiffer springs? i already have new eibach sportlines. I heard that the JDM crx's already have B16's from the factory, so I am hoping my springs are good enough.

    Your Eibachs should be fine. I don't think that the B16 is too much heavier than the stock CRX motor.

    On a side note we don't seem to have engine weights in the Engines section.
