will i need new springs with B16 swap

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.
yea, i noticed that (no engine weights) :)

thanks for the info!

and in case anyone's wondering, i already am planning to upgrade the brakes :)


again, shipping weight is BS. i should put my ls on a scale before i drop it in after its all built back together again- tranny and all
