Written on: 19/12/2009

if u want speed, looks, and reliability,all compacted together. then this is the non tubo charged car u want, that is also good on fuel when drove sensibily,lol,. full of acceleration and speed. a real head turner. a car which puts alot of cars to shame at the lights. including expensive upto date cars. it doesnt have much room in the back. but if u havent got kids. why not treat urself hey!!! wicked pocket rockets!! worth every penny! never lose value!… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/02/2009

The Honda CRX SiR (V-Tec) is good, upgrading this car is good for "Practice" in tuning and building, but you will eventually need to move on to somthing bigger, ie. a 1g dsm or a mk IV supra. Light, extremely good handling, good gas mileage, alot of potential along the lines of a highway racer. Absolutly not good for racing from a dig

I've had mine couple months. It's a project car - poor condition right now but parts are cheap so it will be nice. Love the car and shape, and acceleration on the little car it may be little but its packs a wallop. Once you get the right stuff I'm putting a invader full body kit, exhaust, headers, fuel injection, B16 motor ecu, stage 3 turbo and stage 3 short shifter clutch it should top out like 170 maybe also maybe racing chip then it'll be nice but you should get one plus I got the SI so… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/06/2007 by CYBER RACING (1 review written)

I have owned many cars over the years, Hondas, also owned turbo cars, but recently I've bought a Honda CRX 1994 SIR, no mods yet but this thing moves being a high revving engine. Slap it on third gear while you're on 100km/h and you're can feel the thing pulling. In the years of experience in street racing I would say the Honda 1600 DOHC VTEC engine is the quickest you'll get in the non-turbo range cars. Best of all, it's hassle free. Here is some basic mods that is very effective in these… Read Full Review

Excellent 2 seater semi-sports car. The Honda CRX SiR is an absolutly stunning car, I have the 92 CRX Del Sol SiR, 1.6 litre DOHC V-tec and these cars can move, turn heads, impress the ladies and beat down cars with much bigger engines, handling is excellent as is top speed and acceleration.The feeling of the Vtec in full roar is amazing.

Hehehe with a big grin - that's all I do - laugh and smile when I'm behind the wheel of my '86 import Honda CRX SiR sports car. I wish I had a VTEC though, but I read that the Jap spec was 150bhp, and it appears to weigh virtually nothing. Although a little bumpy, the handling is out of this world for the money. It does have a rather exotic clutch, described by my local garage as more of a switch - but you get used to it and learn to love it! I'm nearly six years into this one, and will be… Read Full Review

I own an 88 CRX si, and the title says 2100 lbs, but i weighed it at a weight station, when i was using its spacious rear to haul my new engin around. The car only weighs 1950 lbs
since then i have modified the car slightly and put into it my 1.8 Litre LS engine (b18b) and bought my vtec head from a b16 parts store.
i have to say whoever said the crx weight 2400 lbs really doesn't know about the rex...

POCKET ROCKET. When these compact japanese racers (Honda CR-X SiR) They were extremely popular mini sports cars. The long sloped hatch back gave the CR-X it's unique and sporty image. My first glimpse of the CR-X was the Super charged 260hp Mugen factory model. Lowered, kitted, charged and completely decked out in full show gear, the CR-X instantlly became an obessesion. I searched all my contacts to find a Mugen tuned model but they were no available locally not to mention export. After… Read Full Review

This guys car is great. He doesn't need anything. I would cut off my left pinky finger to have it. If you are fortunate enough to live in a country without clean air conservative laws, a place where DOHC VTEC engines were introduced in the late eighties, you are in one special place. In america the only engines ever to see a civic hatch or crx engine bay was the ever efficient 16 valve SOHC. Did i say non-vtec, even in the USDM crx si, or, your vti. The JDM or european models of the SIR far excede the top model honda powerplant in the USDM 88-91 crx/civic si. Nearly 60 ponies more! The things I'd do for a right side drive JDM SIR!!! japanese engineers, oh god, please give america type R civics please,

I lived in Germany and have the USDM (United States Domestic Market for those far from import knowledge like M3) 91 CRX Si which came stock with 108hp. I altered the intake, custom exhaust, headers and ignition and while on the Autobahn (German Highways M3!) I very easily kept up with Bimmers to include 3 and 5 series. Yes the BMW M3 will outperform a CRX, but not without having to work for it (not to mention the owner so he can pay it off!) I have now a B16A1 (JDM Si-R engine) same as the… Read Full Review

I have built several b-18 vt crx s and the fastest was a b-18 ls vetec which
<br/>i would go looking for mustangs and could play with gt new mustangs, let them go first then juststay back a door, they think they got you beat then in 3rd go on buy and wave, they swear I was shooting juice butwas not,
<br/> I have a 96 gsr with b-16 pistons which that ls had also and my present car is not as fast as the first ls, they have little more length in the rods so is higher compression I think they are 11.7 with stock b-16 pistons.
<br/> If your crx wont spin stock new tires( medium soft) 195x15 at a idle in first gear with foot off clutch just idling along it aint fast. My new car wont do that but the ls v-tec sure would. oh, I am 66 years old haha
<br/>raced scca all my life in formule fords, atlantics. 300hp in 980 lb Reynard rear engine, no wheel spin in paved road hill climbs google floyd schrammeck thanks farmerfloyd

Hey everyone!
<br>Anyone who has questions about the 1990 or 1991 Honda CRX, base model and Si model, automatic and five speed can ask me. I have owned the 1991 honda crx since 2000.
<br>I have these two cars:
<br>1991 Honda Crx, 1.5litre Base model, Automatic
<br>1990 Honda Crx, 1.6litre Si model, 5 Speed
<br>I am one of the biggest fans of the crx in the Columbus Ohio area.
<br>I enjoyed this review, and I agree with most of the comments made about the CRX si. I have never driven a "v-tech" model however.

well my friend, a 72 olds 4-4-2 is a great car for looking at and some dragging. but we live in a new age now. theres goddamn econoboxes that can beat you in the turns, now come on. true that car was a icon of history. but times have changed the ante has been upped. and its people like you that allow the myth that some car from almost 4 decades ago can compete w/ cars less than half its age. well its just not true. even if you modify it; it would take alot more money to just get to the level of a car like the crx siR, much less beat it. live in the world of today and you will find yourself in a very hard place. its cars like the crx siR that will become the camaro's and firebirds, challengers of our youth. just yours. they will always be important but the past is not the place to live. so grow up a little. oh by the way my cousins crx si(usdm) w/ a b16a and a turbo and it makes upwards of 550 hp w/ 17 lbs of boost. so chew on that.

Seriously i'm not dissing either side, but any car can beat any car. Just because one CRX has 550 horse dosn't mean anything, that takes major money when you can buy an old muscle car that has 500 horse stock opposed to about a hundred.
<br>Like an old hemi isn't gonna loose to a civic more than likely but a cutlass or something like that could easily get wasted buy a skyline. It just matters what kind of looks you like in a car thats all.

Written on: 20/02/2003

I have heard every claim from many domestic enthusiasts about their dislike of imports. The age old line "it cost twice as much to make a import comparabile with a American rod...Not true. I suppose you could sink all kinds of money, and many do. To claim that a Taurus is in the same leauge with a CRX or any B16A equipped import is insane. I ask....If a Mustang GT 5.0 rated at 225hp stock, and 1/4 mile time of 14 seconds at best at 3,400lbs. What do you think a CRX with a 160-170hp motor will do in a car weighing in at less than 2,200 is capable of.....A Taurus is laughably a no brainer, and better off hauling the family to the grocery store!

A taurus Sho might beat the Honda Civic CRX siR but the civic is also an american based car and is kind of a granny mobile (stock). But if that sho weren't up against the japanese manufactured Sir with its 170 hp b16a v-tec the sho would get his ass handed to him. Plus with a honda there are so many different combos of after market mods that your could do to it it would make you head spin.

Yeah the Mustang may win on takeoff (that is if it doesn't fishtail out of control or stay still burning rubber, but forget it against the SIR taking corners. Remember the Tortoise and the Hare... The Mustang cannot control its power, The Sir has more control than its power (which is pretty good too. And in a crash, I would tahe the SIR any day. Mett you on a mountain or country road anytime. And don't forget the Sir can be supped up to 600 Horsepower, then you're smoked all ways...

You said fast when you're over 50, so that means you can't beat us on a dead-stop. you got the bigger motor so you could easily be winning when your racing on a rolling start. I beat a dude at my workplace with a big-block 454 chevelle ss 1969 with my crx si '88 with a '92 ls motor with bolt-ons by at least four car lengths. That's enough to make him annoyed at losing to a 4-cylinder 1.8. If I had my bottle with me, man, he would have seen my 13.0 et at 109mph quarter-mile.

Hehe sure you probably beat some japanese cars, but let me tell you something. I own a 2000 Civic Hx yeah the one that burn half as much gas as yours, I never raced a SHO but I am sure big brother SI will kick your SHO, I have raced regular Taurus and Dodge Intrepid and I beat them both. The Taurus I beat from a stop light and the Intrepid both rolling from 30mph and when we stopped at the light I got really annoyed so needless to say he was left behind. My car is a 5sp and redlines at 6800rpms, does 2nd gear to 65mph third some where around 100-105mph and forth 120mph at 6000rpms and I have been at those speeds in those gears. And yeas I can beat those cars rolling too I just have to downshift like his SHO doesn't downshift when he floors it. And no i don't claim to beat your 7.5 0-60 time but I am sure an SI will. Oh did I mention Ford transmission problems.

Although I agree that is a car that will always start, IS really fast once you get it revving into the high RPM's, a very good looking vehicle if you know what you're doing with aftermarket parts, and has great handling abilities.... I only really want to comment on the "get's girls in bed" remark. If you rely on your car to get the girls in bed, maybe there's something wrong with your self-esteem, No? Although I agree it does attract the looks and is a nice conversation piece, I wouldn't be too proud to say that it was my car that got them in the sack and not my charming personality.

Dear RiceBrne: For you to comment that rice burners smell like bad chinese food, and then tell us you drive one, makes you a bit of a hypocrite, doesn't it? That's like telling someone that hip-hop music is for freaks, and then that same person finds out that you went to an USHER concert. As for black smoke pouring from the exhaust: That's either just low-grade fuel or poor engine maintenance. It's pretty much common sense to assume a fuel problem or engine problems before you accuse all import automakers of purposefully designing cars that pollute the air that a shortsighted person such as yourself shares with the rest of us rice burner owners. I am here to tell you that not only are import cars good on gas but are highly underrated by people such as yourself. Take the Honda S2000 for instance. 240 HP. from a naturally aspirated 4cyl. engine. Not too bad for a riceburner, no?

With the right amount of money ANY car can be build to extreme performance.. they did it on BBC's "Top Gear" They transformed the ugliest & slowest POS ever built : a LADA 2102, to a 13s monster with superb handling!
<br>
<br>Some cars just come better equiped "stock". Sure a BMW 330Ci is a supercar with still much potential left but at 2.5 times the cost of a Civic Type R you might ask yourself why spend the extra money? Also tuning for Kraut is expensive instead for around 10K US$ you can get an extra 200hp from a Honda engine! Imagine 350hp in a 2200lbs car .. now we are talking bubba!
<br>
<br>One thing I do admit.. souped up Honda's or similar small cars with fast four-bangers mostly don't cut it at high speed on the "Autobahn" . They lack torque and weight (crucial for hi-speed=stability) and get blown away by fast Kraut and those "jerks" sit comfortuately at 135+mph whiles our organs move around at those speeds..
<br>
<br>But.. high speed driving is stupid (read: BORING!) , any jerk can do that.. try grading a Honda on a curve.. never driven one? Then STFU!

I own an 88 CRX si, and the title says 2100 lbs, but i weighed it at a weight station, when i was using its spacious rear to haul my new engin around. The car only weighs 1950 lbs
<br>since then i have modified the car slightly and put into it my 1.8 Litre LS engine (b18b) and bought my vtec head from a b16 parts store.
<br>i have to say whoever sayd the crx weight 2400 lbs really doesn't know shiz about the rex...
<br>I don't got it running just yet, but its soon to be a very fast car. The engine is expected to put out 190 HP and 154 lbs of torque, after im done with the LS/vtec. That seems to be the going dyno results out here in San Antonio, after the swap... just clearing up.. the crx is baaad, when its a hybrid.

the only 3 series that could keep up with a CR-X SiR is the M3. with some bolt ons all the other 3 series would get beat. the funny thing is these cars were built and designed in the late 80s and absolutely crush anything that bmw had to offer in terms hangling reliability looks gas mileage etc. u cant compare a m3 or an m5 to a crx. they were 3 times as expensive as a crx back in the early 90s. compare them to a 90 NSX which was 3 times as expensive back then and they would get raped. oh bmw moron a crx on average is abou 2100 pounds not 2400 big difference there. well look at bmws mini today. 10 years and more after the SiR came out it kills it in everyway. lighter faster, fuel efficiency,handling and looks. oh did i mention it takes bmw a same sized engine and a supercharger to make the same power as the b16. oh and did i forget the SiR is 13 years old

OK guys, there is no way you can compare a BMW 3 series to a CRX no matter what you think. True it does cost more to modify a BMW into a true performance machine. But the final out come its greatly different. A 3.2 l EVO M3 motor puts out about 321hp stock. Hey guys guess what you can do a motor swap with a BMW to. And a Gsr motor into a CRX or civic will at best put 190hp. Supercharge or turbo charge the BMW and civic at 10psi the BMW with the motor swap will be running around 420hp and your civic or CRX will be running about say 270. Now that is a 150hp difference and the inline six with put out a ton more toque then any 4 banger will. So I see you guys talking about power to weight ratio. well a 95 BMW 325is weighs around 3000lbs and you can get them as low as 8000 But most of them go for around 15,000 the same price for a civic si and a civic si weighs around 2600lbs a CRX weighs in around 2400lbs. so the BMW 3000/420=7.14lb per 1 HP pretty nice the Civic si 2600/270=9.25lb per 1 HP the CRX at 2400lb/270hp=8.8lb per 1hp. Not the BMW is also RWD and the civic is FWD. The BMW with its more advanced suspension when prepared right can handle with any civic or CRX even with the 400lb-600lb weight difference and kill one of those cars on a straight away. True it cost less make a CRX or a civic that fast but with the same stuff done to it with a motor swap and forced injection the BMW with win SORRY Jap fans. the civic is only good for about 135mph since your rev limited so what are you going to say when you see a BMW flying past you at 180mph both with stock transmissions damn thats like 45mph fast sucky. Now the 240sx with a SR20DET motor is a different story.

Yes the B16B is a destroked B18,but there are a lot more differences than that,so comparing it to a B16A is ridiculous.The Tauraus SHO has 235hp and weight 3440lbs,it is a whale and shows it in the 1/4 mile with a 15.9,the BMW M325i has 184hp weights 3241lbs and runs the 1/4 15.4 and the 99-00 si has only 160hp but weight only 2584 and still only does the 1/4 in 15.6.
<br> I have a swapped B16A2 93 VTi that runs a 10.4:1 compresion instead of the US 10.2:1,which equates to about 170hp and with the 92 VX civic hatchback chassis weighting in at only 2045lbs with this motor runs about 14.8.Since the CRX weights even less,believe me a SHO or a 325i will NEVER give either of them a run for their money,unless modded,but we aren't talking modded,since if you were to give the rex or civic the same mods,you windup with the same results.I have seen all these cars run and the CRX and the Hatchback are ALWAYS the victors.

first of all you can swap motor in case you're new to that, plus i don't think i would leave a dohc vtec motor stock, i agree it probably won't keep up with one stock US spec or Japan spec but with some work done to them they are fast.

It's true, the Honda CRX SiR is a very quick little car, and it has a place among the fastest production front wheel drive cars ever!
<br>There is no comparison between the Honda CRX SiR and the Yamaha powered Taurus SHO, so I have eliminated it from comparison.
<br>However when compared to a stock BMW M3 (designed for performance right from the factory)it is not really a fair comparison... The M3 is rear wheel drive, the CRX is front, the M3 has about 240 horsepower (depending on year), the CRX has about 160 horsepower, the M3 has an inline 6, the CRX has inline 4, M3 has 3.2l engine while the CRX has a 1.6l, the M3 costs about $45,000US and the CRX costs about $15,000US (based on new prices of last model year)....
<br>HUGE differences, kinda like David vs Goliath, it should be flattering that the little CRX even warrants such exotic comparisons to that of an M3, or even a Porche...
<br>Any $15,000 car that can strike even a bit of fear into the owners of these $40,000+ machines should be commended.
<br>Just BEWARE of the $15,000 CRX, especially if another $10,000 was put into it, it may hurt your ego...

that dude is right, porsches and bimmers have a hard time keeping up. i have a friend with a 1988 CRX Si, since he got it i've helped him do it up, a few mods were made. we broke it (70 shot NOS fogger system makes you buy Ti valve springs and conrods) v-tec controller, boost controller, 18 mags. 6 speed drag box, 2.5' exaust, anymore and it sucks back, lagging the engine changing gears and braking. the original 88-89 Si models have 105hp, the 90-91's have 108hp due to different ecu settings and possibly a slightly different cam. but we bored his from 1.6 to 1.8, put a big garret and intercooler and got a custom cam built and port flow cylinder head and had it running 10.68s @ 129mph on the quarter bit more than 105hp i rekon..takes a bit to get it right, a bit skittish of the line but hey, thats what front wheel drive does for ya. try to buy a car from a showroom that'll do that!!! most fun i've ever had in a car.

M3: "coz they are too light." why would you think that?
<br>M3, I think you need to go back to school! You're the biggest idiot I seen on the internet yet.
<br>Listen there is two types of weight
<br> The weight of the car (Your Seats, The Casey)
<br> The weight that the motor as to push over: (Your fly wheel, Pistons, etc)
<br>The less weight the motor as the FASTER your car will go!
<br>And one more thing: Your Ford might be faster then Civic that is Stock in a straight away. But any civic will out corner you & out break you. Think about that...

<br>
<br>Yes and the B18c's are stroked B16a's
<br>
<br>Hell I knew that but throwing this kind of knowledge to idiots like "M3 from Texas" just doesnt get through in their thcik skulls..and my comment is not about comparing Honda engines one to another but the simplicity of the comments that bothers me!

okay.. honda's aren't fast coz they are too light? most likely you didn't know this but the fastest production car in the world . the Mclaren F1 weighs about 2200 pounds.. that's less than a Civic hatchback... and it does 0-60 in about 3.4 seconds..and the quarter mile in about 11 seconds... it also tops out at 242 mph.. I guess it would be faster if it was heavier right? The problem with the world is that there are too many people that think they know what they are preaching.. but they really have no clue.. Education helps.

ok , I dont think adding a cold air intake to a
<br>civic si will give any noticible gains. How do i
<br>know this? Well i've owned several civics and i can tell
<br>u that a cold air intake at the most will give you around 5 horsepower which gives you an increase in mostly top end performance, not off the line. Yes civics are cool and i like them , but i also have a ford taurus sho that would spank any normally aspirated civic. And yes there a lot of things you can do to any sho to give add lots of horsepower.

I get the impression neither of you have a clue what you are talking about .
<br>
<br>1.) There was no 2001 Civic Si (1999 - 2000)
<br>
<br>2.) The Civic Type R isn't a true B16 . It is a B18 destroked to B16 specs . It uses the P72 block .
<br>
<br>3.) Of course stock for stock a Ford Tarus SHO will beat a Civic Si . Do the math :
<br>
<br>Ford Tarus SHO : 15.35 : 1 HP RATIO
<br>Honda Civic Si : 16.32 : 1 HP RATIO
<br>
<br>The V6 in the Ford Tarus SHO is a fully tuned SVO engine . Unless your willing to spend vast amounts of money it will never see anything over 220 HP . On the other hand the Honda Civic Si is easy to modify . With a CAI (Cold Air Intake) the Honda would smack your Ford Tarus around like a redheaded step child .

M3 you state nonsense because you never even encountered a CRX SiR (JDM) or CRX 1.6 VT (EDM). Simply because they were NEVER sold in America/ Canada. How can you compare beating a 5 door basic civic with a 150 ps crx?
<br>
<br>No we cannot keep up (in stock form!!) with porsches or M-series BMW's but these cars cost at least 3 to 6 times as much.
<br>
<br>Rather remarkable is Honda's achievement to pump out 150 ps from a 1595cc engine (thesame b16 in the Type R civic is rated at 185ps!!) by using a variable valve lift system (the 1st in a production car!!) and keep the engine small and light to reduce understeer as much as possible. It's not the fastest car in the world but it's one of the best FWD cars prodcued ever! I've driven a lot of different cars in my life (including BMW, Porsches, GTi's, etc.etc.) but I get a real andrenaline rush from driving this litle CRX something I cannot find in expensive cars (not that I do not like them)
<br>
<br>The stock SiR does 0-60 6.9seconds, topspeed= 139mph (due to rev limiter@8300rpm!)and it handles great above 120mph , something your bug heavy POS Ford cannot even achieve!!

I have had the car for 5 years now and have clocked a total of 171,000 miles! The car is still running like a dream, the only major problem was worn bearings in the box. I have dropped the car 60mm and have fitted 16in alloys and thats is all that needs doing to them (if anything). I have often shocked owner of RS turbos and golf Gti`s as I`ve left them behind at the lights, struggling to keep up! And all this from a little 1.6 NA!!

Sorry to hear you were so dissapointed with the CRX but it is obvious that you had purchased a very rare, neglected example. From my experiance of performance cars the crx, although not as quick as some, is without doubt the car I would choose to leave a grin on my face from ear to ear! It has one of the best gearboxes I have had the pleasure to fondle, and yes the interior is a bit plasticy but mine has well stood up to the 175,000 miles I have thrown at it!
<br>CRX`s will always have a place in my heart, from standard models right up to the mad modded monsters that you see flying about!! It will, without doubt, be a collecters piece in the future but more so a collectors dream!
