i have no car now....im deciding weather to buy a 90 CRX si with a 94 GSR motor and JDM B16 head and tranny on it. Pulls REALLY hard i drove it, and then the owner took me for a spin. The bodys alrite no problem, but the only thing is, the JDM b16 tranny is really for accleration its nice but, like just daily driving it on the highway at like 60mph the tach is @ like 3'500rpm.......so it kinda waste gas and it only has a 8gal tank on it........and it has a short shifter and a 6puck clutch and its really weird, after you put the car in any gear the shifter acts like its still in neutral!!! i guess it needs a new bushing, and it has a JDM B16 Ecu i think...and everything was DIY...thats about it....hes askin 3,800.....i'll give him 3,500 cash.......

---------- OR------

just buying this 89 civic DX hatch which is completly stock no mods done to is with 226,726miles on it for $999.........and i could swap that and put money into that

all i really have is $3,700 that it till i get paid.....i don't know if the crx would be dependable with the gsr all DIY out and everything.......what do you guys think?!

get a spoon fan switch... that might fix the fan problem.
go under the dash and "help" the heater door closed.

My b16 tranny is geared real short, it's at like 4-4.5K rpm when I drive from Seattle, WA to Eugene, OR a couple times every month or so, 300 miles one way. It takes a bit to get used too, but I still get 350 miles to a tank (around 30mpg) so gas milage is not really a problem, even though it's geared short

i was going to about to enter the highway...and i was sitting at the stop light right before the entrance waiting, and i didn't see any cops and i decide ta take off, so the light turned green and i did take off.. went through 1st, then 2nd, and then 3rd, and right when i was still on the last part of the on ramp....the car stopped acclerating! and it sounded like something was scraping the ground... i tried to switch gears and nothing no transmission!!! so luckily right where theres entrance, there is a exit...and i coasted off and all the way off the highway and coasted on the the street and parked on the side.....grabed a flashlight, got out of my car and looked under.....i thought the shift linkage fel out.....nope.....then i looked in front.....THE FUCKING MOTOR FELL OUT! i poped the hood....and yup! the driver side motor mount fucking broke!!!!! what kinda s**t is that.....?!?!?!?!?! so the motor was fucking leaning to a side....i gave this guy all the money i had for this goddamn car.....i thaought it was a good car...so i had ta walk like 2 miles home........i better get my damn money back from this guy, for this P.O.S. i have absouly no money to tow this car anywhere...or to fix it......even if its fixed i don't want it anymore....

...mmm no. when i went for a test drive...i could kinda drive it, but it was kinda hard for me cuz it has a short shifter and 6 puck clutch and its kinda hard to get into gear and the shifter is wobbly........so then the owner took me for a ride....we acctully did the same thing......he went to the on ramp of the highway and completly stopped...and then took off like a MOFO....that s**t really pulled!! 0-60mph.....maybe 6.7 sec?! i dunno but it flew...and he just got up to like 100mph...and thas it........i mean i only got up to like 65mph...and that s**t ^happend^ ......sooooo i just want my money back...i don't want that car anymore....
