I just bought a 86 crx hf for 800 bucks...bunch of miles on it but well taking of...came with 4 new tires and bunch of new parts from honda is the only reason i got it for that price.....anyways im new to the older honda and i was wondering what motor i can swap into the car....like any of the older civic motor or the si motor? i just wanna get rid of the carb
Why swap? That thing in good tune should get 50 mpg on the highway. That was its mission. If you want power buy an Si. I will trade you a '91 CRX si with some body rust (never said I wasnt honest), 131k on the body, recent D16A6 (OEM) engine (no leaks) for your car straight-up.
Welcome! The Si engine will bolt in but you have to swap all the under dash wireing as well. The duel cam D16 out of a gen I Integra will also bolt in with some minor work. B series will also work but it doesnt just bolt in. Its ver expensive and there is alot of work to get it done. Google redpepperracing for all you gen I CRX swap info.
I personally would leave it stock and get that 40 mile per gallon.

I would check your floor boards for rust and the torsion bar mounts for rust. not to ention the rear wheel wells. that is the places that I had on mine. but I finally had to get rid of mine last year cause of stupid NJ emission laws.
other then that I loved me hf and it ran forever with 42 mpg. it was a newer one 1987 crx hf.
