I am currently running my 91 CRX with a D16. The engine build didnt break the bank, lots of fun and is fast enough in my class (SCCA ITA, EMRA ST7).
I agree with determine which class you want to run in, and if you still plan on driving the car on the street. If the car is to be street driven plus Autocross competition, you have a choice of Street class, or STS. STS is more rewarding, and unless you build it to the limit, can still be a good street driving car. STS 2016 SCCA National Champion was an 88 CRX.
A stock class CRX can be made to work, but requires some expensive shocks, 15x5.0 rims, and a decent rear bar. Either choice will give you an good, reliable, fun to drive car, with the original d16.
I currently run my 88 CRX Si in HS, and can run with most of the best HS cars in the country.
