Find someome to buy your GSR with another motor in it and keep the B18C1 to drop in the rex.Ok never mind that is a pain in the ass,swap in a b16a1 or b18a1,both are the same obd and cable actuated clutch,and they both require the same mount kit to place them in the bay correctly.

well, if u like the GSR and u dont mind wiring, save and get it, if u gut a CRX and put a b16a in it they are relatively quick. if u want the save kinda torqey feeling u get from the GSR, get a b18a1. they make amazing torque in a CRX, and will beat most cars out there, if u get a B16a tranny u will beat them up to around 140 KM's or 80 mph, after that the vtec starts to pull on u. the B16a is also a lil over 1000 more. i got my full B18a1 setup for the following prices ( all in canadian dollers)

B18a1 engine complete = 1000
RedShift Racing Mounts = 450
ACT clutch = 400
Balanced and Lightened Flywheel= 150
Oil = 40
Platnium +4 spark plugs and wires= 150
Extra parts = 100 ( Integra cable for clutch, hoses, clamps,)
this gives a total of $2090 for a complete swap in canadian dollers, like 1200 american. I also had a Intake and exhaust i swapped over. and advanced timing. Im making about 165-170fwhp and 140 trq. for about 800 less than a b16a swap.

How are you making 35 more hp to the wheels than the stock b18a1 has at the crank,with just some bolt ons and a clutch?
