i twill take a lot of work ... but it is possible
however it is not worth it... that engine has very little aftermarket support and basicly sucks
sell it and get a B16A SiR, B18A1, ZC, any of these will be a better choice

Dude, it will cost alot more $$ than its worth. Sell it and get a ZC, a ZC in a crx will beat that enigne in a crx. u sell it get 400, if that, buy a zc for 500-600 and u got alot better start. just trust me dont put that engine in ur car. NOT WORTH IT!
 
dude its da truth! the prelude motor aint worth puttin it into the crx.it will cost more to put the lude motor than to get a zc

if you have a 5 speed car just wait till you find a 5 speed swap ... if you get the auto B18 you will still need to find a tranny for it .. it will be less expensive to get it all at once

NOT WORTH IT...
the engine is DOG SHIT
it has no potential
its a bitch to make it fit
it will require a bunch of customization because no one makes anything for it, BECAUSE ITS SHIT
save your money and get a real engine

It isn't even funny how many people ask the same thing in the same thread,or two threads apart,or ask it then get it shot down then post another thread,like the same people are going to miss it this time,and the fairy god motor is going to all of a sudden make it work.

That is so the wrong idea.Do your swap right and one that is worth it,you will be so much happier in the end.

No Kidding, I can't count how many times I hit f5 in a day on the main page of this site.

Like I'm going to miss a thread because 15 people posted and knocked it off the leaderboards... yea right.
