Please turn off the caps lock, this isn't Honda Tech, you'll get more help that way.

The D16A1 isn't really a worthwhile swap for an 88 Si. It doesn't have that much more power than the A6 you already have, and you need motor mounts and I would imagine an adapter plate. If you have the motor just sitting around, use the pistons in your A6 for a little bump in compression.

Sorry work at an Engineering firm. I can get the Integra for $100, and my SI has 236,000 and is really burning a lot of oil, but still runs great.

It still is not a worthwhile swap.
Take that $100 that you would use to buy the Integra motor plus the money you would need to buy the mounts and whatever is needed for the swap, plus the time it would take you to swap that motor into your Crx and use all of that time and money to rebuild your old Crx Si motor.

You can't even buy mounts for that swap, your only option is to weld something together and make it fit.
Hmm, i stand corrected then. I was not aware of that.
I know it is not a drop in and bolt in affair, but I never thought about that.

Bottom line, the 1st gen teg motor swap into a Crx is nust not worth it.
