Re: The uneven trade...

well i plan on eventually doing a turbo i figured dropping in some eagle rods on a b16 would do it. either way the thicker walls on the d series would be safer so thats my sticking point

Re: The uneven trade...

So here is my dilemma..i lost sleep over this already and i havnt had the car more than 24 hours. A motor swap is a must and i would like a turbo but my buddy has a B20 VTEC swapped teggy that i looove. I figure the same engine and someone with the experiance of already doing a successful swap would help alot plus much lighter car would be mean...is it possible to b20 swap a CRX??? anythings possible i mean how difficult would it be?

Re: The uneven trade...

B20 will fit in CRX.You'll need a certain type of engine mounts though if you want your hood to close properly

Re: The uneven trade...

A b20 is not a good engine to boost in stock form, the sleeves are too thin.
