what's up everyone. i just joined the site. glad theres a place for the crx enthusiast. I'm 24 and live in lil ol' wyoming. I had a 89 crx si with a 95 civic motor in it. lasted three weeks before it was stolen off my driveway. completly stripped and left upside down submerged in an irragation ditch. (I F***** hate theives) but loved the X so much that I had to get another one. Now I have a 89 crx dx auto. I plan on puttin in the d16 along with a 5 speed. So if anyone knows where to get a pedal assembly or anything else to help with this project i'd appreciate it. My DX was in a hit n run about 8 months ago. I've slowly been gettin her back to normal since then. Had to replace the hood, so i went with the evo style carbon fiber. also swapped the stock rims for 16" A.R. Casinos. If anyone has done the auto 2 manual swap i'd appreciate any helpful advice. Living where i do makes it very hard to find people who really know what they're talking about. thanks for having me guys and I look forward to meeting all the rest of the crx community. p.s. i'll be posting pics of my X as soon as i figure out how

Yes welcome. Your not the only one with thieve problems but thats the last place i would expect it. Why the D16 if i may ask? The B16 would be much better. Hope we can help you out.[/url]

for the auto to manual swap there's 2 ways you can do it. first off, pop your hood and check to see if you have a rubber thing that plugs up a hole in the firewall. if its not already there you will need to drill a hole in there for the clutch linkage. ( here's a pic of my engine, my car is auto but it has the plug)


the first way to do it is by getting a ecu from a manual crx and then installing the 5spd assembly.. the second way.. kinda rigging it, but it works is to loop a wire so the car thinks its in neutral all the time so you can take the key out of the ignition.

Ok I got the picture thing figured out as yall can tell. first off my X wasn't stolen here, I was living in Salt Lake, Utah at that time. and as for the d16, I'm going with that because it's cheaper. I'm not looking to have a 10 sec X just something easy to drop in and have some fun with. Also my last X had the same setup and i loved that thing for the short time i had it.

Welcome to the forums. I've also done an auto-to-manula swap on my 89 Dx. I can let you know any details you need about converting the car and such. I did a couple of things differently than in that writeup.
As for the wiring, I gutted the whole car and re-ran the main wiring harness form the same Si that i took the d16 and tranny from so that i would be clean and factory like since i was changing from dpfi to mpfi and auto to manual at the same time.
Let me know if you need any advice, shoot me an IM or something.
