Tylox Posted January 16, 2008 Share Posted January 16, 2008 (edited) Hey everyone. I am purchasing a 88 CRX HF tommorow for about 150 bucks. It runs, but needs some work. It has about 305k miles on it (Dear god) and I am planning on doing an engine swap. I'm pretty proficient with cars (I went to auto tech school) and am actually in process of building a shop off the side of my house. Anyway, back on topic. I am extremely new to the honda community. I've been a die hard Toyota follower ever since I got my first Camry. I now drive a 95 4Runner (Complete top end rebuild, etc...). Anyway, after pouring over many forums and a ton of crap on wikipidia, I finally decided that I want to go with the B18A1 motor swap. From what I read, its pretty much a straight swap - with the exception of the engine mounts. Which is fine. Anyway, my real question here is this - I have no idea where the hell to even find one of these motors. Ebay is great, but filtering through 50 pages of crap to possibly find a motor doesn't intrest me. So, does anyone know where to look for these engines? I'm probably going to start asking around the local junkyards. I'll be driving the car for a while just for the gas mileage, after I fix a couple small things. Then I'll buy the engine, rebuild it, and drop it in over a weekend or something. Anyway, any help would be awesome. You can email me, its probably the best way to get in touch with me (email@example.com) Thanks much! -Tyler *Ninja Edit* Also, I couldn't even find a price on these engines...anyone know a ballpark range?
