Crx

Do you guys think it would be a good project to buy a beat up crx from the early 90's and do a lot of body and engine work. Would I get good results or would I be dissapointed with the results in the time immeadily after and in the future?

They can be really quick with little work because of how light they are. They arent too pretty on the eyes though. A H22 or B16a2 swap would be best.

Light weight, all sorts of aftermarket support. What's not to like?

I think they look great, too.

hell yeah get that shit... specially if you can get the 91' model. I think those are best. They dont weigh much and my friend has a zc in his 88 crx and that shit is pretty quick. If you put a H22 in there.... youd be nothing to fukk with. I say get it if you have the money and right intentions...dont do the crx badly.

A friend of mine converted his CRX to RWD and swapped in a bi-turbo V8 (350). He was clocked at 180 mph by the CHP and lost his license for 2 years. Needless to say, the Honda CRX has plenty of potential.

Holy sh*t! I think when you are going 180 mph on the streets you should at least have a radar detector, and some good ass breaks. How did the cops catch up to him, and how much was the ticket?

Sure it would. Make it a road racer or a mild strip car, nothing to wild. Maybe something around 250hp would be enough to have some fun with.

umm new engine? 226,000 is alot, even for a Honda. It could go out any time now. I know, try to stick some V6 in it!! And make it RWD!! and test it on the highway!! BRILLIANT!!!
