I have a blown si motor in my crx. How much should a shop or someone charge me to:
1. Remove motor and trans
2. Install a6/sohc zc and trans

There shouldn't be any wiring needed.

Is there a local 'Honda' board anywhere near where you live? If there is that is the first place I would ask this question. Odds are there are a lot of people who could help you with this.

Here in Ohio there are more people/places than you can imagine that can do that quickly and cheaply. I have had engines replaced for as little as $100 by Honda certified techs working out of their garage. Not a motor swap per se but you get the idea.

Good luck!

Thanks.
1 guy said he would pull the motor and tranny and install a sohc zc for $400-$500.
Someone else said they could pull it for $150.

Right now I just need it pulled out. Then if I have enough money I want to do a better swap than the sohc zc.

Be Careful with that $150 swap quote! Do you know the guys level of experience?
I know people near me that will "try" swaps for people and get halfway through and make excuses as to why it isn't working.

$400 isn't that high considering thats an average labor cost for clutch replacement round my area.

Is this the motor you rebuilt recently? What happened? :(
No...That rebuild never did happen. I ended up selling the parts and the dx crx.
I just bought another white 91 si with a blown motor. I want to get it pulled out and then go from there.
Thinking about a sohc zc from HMO.

I actually found the guy that pulled my first A6 out that I bought from him. He said he can pull this one out for lunch and dinner. Not to bad.

Well the one guy didn't come through.
I had another guy do it, and he did a very good job.
$80 well spent, to pull the motor and tranny out.
