Whats the diffrence between my stock radiator other then it being 16 years old compared to the Fluidyne one they offer. And if i was to get one dont i get the 92-95 civic one, Why is that? Only reason i ask is because i see one selling locally for 200. And no one has cash to swoop up on the deal.

The fluidyne offers several advantages that I can think of:

1. Aluminum - dissipates heat better
2. Welded aluminum end caps - won't crack like the stock plastic
3. Oversize - larger capacity means better cooling

You can get the EG rad if you're trying to make room for a turbo or something, but I would still get the CRX rad. It holds more coolant. :)

EG radiators also don't technically fit in the vertical space provided in the CRX engine bay. so you either drop it down below the lower mounts and either fab up some brackets and/or zip tie it, or you put a 35 degree gansta lean on it.

So is it safe to use the half sized radiator? I mean i guess it has to be safe since alot of people have them and yes im thinking the future and making room for turbo.

*Requires aftermarket parts for most applications. We can supply you with the hasport mount kit for $300 and the hasport linkage for $100.Prices only valid with purchase of a complete changeover. We can also supply you with 90-93 Integra steering knuckles and hubs for $50 if you need them. Also availabe is the Hasport Aluminum A/C bracket for $160 and the Hasport wiring sub-harness for EF civics that are either HF or Si models (not DX or STD) for $60.
Thats at the bottom right.... :p

If your converting to OBD2, I would suggest getting the swap for a 92-95 civic like jfro did and request a cable tranny unless you want to get the cable to hydro conversion from hasport as well. That way, you will get you a bit newer motor. Also if you ask for an lsd cable tranny, you'll be on a waiting list for awhile.

Thats all I can provide, maybe jfro will chime in.

If you want OBD-1, buy an OBD-1 B16. They're newer, higher compression, more power, etc, and will include everything you need. To make it plug and play, I highly recommend Rywire. If you buy a "complete changeover" it will include mounts and linkages, but you won't be able to use them. You'll need to buy the Hasport mounts ($300) and you can either get the Hasport linkages ($100) or if you can weld shorten the ones they send you. HMO charges $250 to ship your engine anywhere in the lower 48, and free shipping for anything else you order at the same time. My out the door cost from HMO was $2299, which included a $50 discount for being a repeat customer. I bought my SiR front through them in March.

The swap that I would recommend (and the one I bought) is the 92-93 Integra XSi swap. It's OBD-1, 10.4:1, 170hp, and includes a cable YS1 tranny. If you want a cable LSD tranny be prepared to wait several months on a list. If you're willing to go hydro, they should have LSDs in stock, but you'll have to pay more for the mount kit ($429) and deal with the 'clutch feel' issues that nobody seems to like.

You don't have to worry about an ECU, when you buy an engine swap from HMO you'll get the proper ECU with it. Thus, if you order the engine in that link, you'll get either a PW0 or PR3 OBD-0 ECU. If you buy an OBD-1 swap, you'll get an OBD-1 ECU, etc.
