Default 88 crx

does anyone know if i can modify the motor mounts that came with my 1.5 and attach them to the 1.8 to make it fit, or do i need to buy a kit? its a 1.8 dohc that came out of an acura rs and its going into an 88 crx si with a 1.5 sohc si stock motor.

yeah..you are gunna need some Hasport b series mounts. They are a couple hundred bux.

What year is the car that you plan on taking the engine out of? you are most likely going to have to upgrade your clutch lines from cable to hydrolic unless you can fine a b16 tranny that is a cable clutch. Also you will need to wire for obd1 unless you can get your dizzy and injector parts off a obd1 b16. You will need new shift linkage that needs to be cut and welded and you will also need some different axels.

I don't know if you knew all that, just thought i would throw it out there..

here is some info on all the ef swaps

yea...i have the entire acura vehicle as a donor its a '90. something else im wondering is the motor harness looks like it has all the same plugs as my 1.5 motor harness does, so...do i have to change the harness or can i just swap the ecu and be good?..I know the ecu will plug straight in, but are all the wires in the same order? I read where one guy modofied his original mounts to fit the b18 motor...how difficult is that? It would save me alot of money if i can just do that. I plan using the suspension, axels, ecu and break system from the donor car.

well, you say you have a 1.5 si motor...which doesnt make since. the si motor is a 1.6 liter engine. So if its multi-port fuel injection then that should save you some time on the wiring.


Im not positive if the wiring on the ecu is the same.
