Just a quick couple of questions...I recently bought a 1987 CRX with the 1.5 engine (carb'ed) #1 will body mods such as tail lights & headlights would fit on the 87...I keep seeing 88-91 but was wondering if those would fit.

#2 what computers are the best for a B16 swap...I have read some posts that include some of the production codes but since I'm new to imports I'm not sure what cars these came from.

All most nothing from the 2nd gen (88-91) rex's will fit on a 1st gen (84-87) the 2nd gen are 2" wider and 4 " longer also the lights are different.It is very different without being to different. :D

For the ECU question,the p30 is good,to find out what ecu's,came in what cars,with what motors check out the reference section.

HAsport makes and sells EVERYTHING you need to do the swap as painlessly as possible.Your biggest problen is going to be going from a carbed engine to fuel injection.Check out HAsport call em up after looking at their website and ask any further questions.
