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...

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 more)

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. I would recommend this car to anybody, I will have it for many years. (read more)

I own a 91 Honda CRX SiR (V-Tec) Sports Car and its gotta be the fastest thing Ive ever driven, beating integras, audi tts and even scoobys in a straight line. Bought it stock 3 months ago, i've already fitted a full exhaust system, induction kit and superchip. Favourite thing about the car has to be the noise though when I put my foot down and get that vtec smile. You know what Im talking about. (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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.

i miss my Honda CRX SiR as do my mates. It never cost anything in parts for my 92 model. Love the revs but needs tints and torque. fun toy that reacts well to breathing aids. beats fat bouncy gas guzzlers that americans throw out in a bid to poison earth. smooth power comes and then at revs becomes a fast fun drivers delight. Brakes are very impressive. (read more)
