Hey all! Just purchased a 1990 CRX HF and came to this forum to learn a little bit more about the CRX and update my thread with anything new. Anyways, I bought the CRX last Friday for 500 bucks with a blown headgasket. So I will just be replacing it with a d15b2 and throwing a a6 intake manifold on it. This is the engine:Untitled

The engine was initially for a civic wagon I have but I want to go a different route with the wagon so it will be sitting for a bit longer. Motor has 96,000 miles. Painted/Powder Coated a couple things. The following items were replaced:
Intake manifold gasket
Exhaust Manifold gasket
Oil Pan Gasket
Valve cover gasket
Spark Plug tube seals
Spark Plugs and wires
Hopefully it won't have give me any major problems for a while.
Anyways here are some pics of the Rex:
Pulled the motor that weekend. Washed the engine bay and in process of cleaning transmission housing than it should be ready to go in.
I also transferred the wagon front suspension over to the HX. Reason being it has brand new bushings and ball joints and I plan on getting a bigger brake setup for the wagon. HX tranny will be used for the time being up until I get my hand on and Si tranny. Fixed the pics. Thanks for checking in!
