Engine Swap

Ok, so the conversion aint the best idea in the world. And I'm not so sure that the car I have is worth the money. At any rate, if y'all could give advice on engines and what kind of money I'm going to wind up spending at the least would be greatly appreaciated.

if you're lookin to not spend too much money go with the b16...it's pretty fast, and it usually only costs about 1500...
but if you're goin for all out speed...(like me) go with the h22(prelude engine)
I think you can get it for 2800 shipped...
well, i'm not that knowledgable about engines...so i'll let everyone else try to explain this shiz...

whats your maximum price limit, and we'll tell you what you can get. a h22 isnt a feasable crx swap and have it as a daily driver. a b18c1 will probobly be your best bet

Money?

As far as money goes I think I would be willing to spend in the range of $3000 for something that would whip these little wannabe Honda's running around here. I'm not all that knowledgeablly in the swapping engines area of cars though. If I can do the whole deal for 3 grand, computer and all, I would be a heppy camper.

ZC might be your only feasable swap, maybe a first gen b16.

I know a guy that has a ZC swap in his CRX and he runs 15.8 at the track...Very shitty track I might add also. I say b16 or ZC. They are both affordiable and fit in nicely into the engine bay.

Do the b16 its your best bet. I run a b16 in mine and its fast enough for me . The install is real simple to if you got the time it will save you alot of cash.

Compression ratios?

I'm wanted to turbocharge the engine I put in the car. I have a friend that says that a lower compression would be a wise idea if I go that route. Will a b16 do well with a turbo charger?

Yeah it does good with a turbo. Just don't boost over 6 psi (from what i'm told.)

6 psi is the way to go if your wanting to bolt it on an go .... But you can go alot higher if your willing to put in some extra cash to replace some internal parts....If your looking for a great bolt on kit I would recomend F-max....They make a complete turbo kit for 88-91 crxs with b16a transplants ........ It has everything you need including an exhaust manifold , intercoller , downpipe with 2 o2 sensors , boost tube , modified compressor housing , intake tube , T3/T04B turbo , 2 10 inch perma cool electric fans , 35mm TiAL wastegate , wastegate dumptube , HKS standard racing bypass valve , K&N bypass valve filter , K&N filter and a turbo oil line.....Hope this helps you out some ....In my honest opinion your alot better off swaping to a b16 instead of the zc.......Good luck

That's not that large, especially since the b16 revs so high. It's got the smaller t3 turbine which makes it easier to spin but with the larger t4 compressor.

A good friend of one of my buddies has a crv motor in either a crx or a hatch, I don't remember right now. But he did it all himself and the thing drives. Yeah that's right. I said crv.

It is a good enough turbo to run if your not wanting to spend alot of cash on reworking the internals....

ohhhhhh I thought they were talkin about turboing a b16....B dubs are a nice way to go as long as they are built properly.
From what i understand if your gonna go with the b dub you want the b20z....
