I have looked at an interesting idea for a crx. and my first question regarding it is this. Does the DOHC (b16b) engine in american integras match up to the tranny in american crx's?? If so i had a great idea to modify a crx. As i was wandering through a local parts yard, i found an old AWD civic. looking inside it had the little 1.5l engine found in the crx/civics and thinking that if the b16b can bolt up to the 1.5's FWD tranny. why not the 1.5's AWD tranny. then its a matter of getting the components for the rear off of a scrapped AWD and having a custom driveline made to fit the correct distance, along with maybe a little moving of metal to fit it along the exhaust like in the AWD civic. if this could work, then i see the possibility of an amazing track car in the form of a tuned B16B AWD CRX. if anyone knows how well this would work, if it would, or if anyone has tried this, id like to know. cause its always come to me, that this is a very possable way of really beefing up a crx. and it really wouldnt take too much work from what i know of civics and crx's. (done an engine swap and a few repairs on 88-91 civics and crx's, and crx's are very similar as far as components go.) well any input would be great. sorry for the long post.
note: im aware that there would be a lot of wiring differences to work out, i was just curious about how the mechanical part of it would work.
Also if i dont want to worry about changing electronic stuff, i can always jsut keep the stock engine in the crx as it will be the 1.5 or 1.6 and should bolt up anyway. (when i go searching for one i wanna get a Si, but that wont be for a little bit)
