I've driven quite a few cars and the
Rex's handling is way above its class.
Eats the pavement for breakfast lunch
and dinner and then again for a
midnight snack. I recently swapped out
my d15b DPFI motor for the japanese
SOHC ZC which has is the d16a6 but with
slightly increased compression and a
more aggresive cam, good for about 12
more hp over the USDM Si version. Runs
amazing but im using a weak clutch and
conservative feul maps, so it still
needs some tweeking. Once it's how i
want it though it should run mid or low
15's mostly stock.
My 1990 CRX was 14 years old when I
bought it. It still looks great. My
1990 CRX had 128,000 miles on it when I
bought it. It runs like lightning.
Still shifts nice, accelerates superb,
unbelieveable milage. I think it needs
brakes but I like driving it so much I
don't think I will ever stop again.
P.S. CRX's are getting harder to
find. Mine is a standard hatch, 5
speed and light as a feather. It has a
K&M cold air intake, performance
exhaust, coil overs, sway bars, strut
tower bar and it corners like it's on
rails. After I added low profiles and
nice 16"wheels the car is perfect. My
little CRX gets "ALL" the looks.
Light, nimble, shifts nicely, great
milage, tight as a drum and RELIABLE !
Play hard with it on the weekends and
drive it to work weekdays.
I bought my CRX HF with 177,000 miles
on it. In 7 months, I put over 50,000
more on it before someone failed to
look before pulling into an
intersection. The only mechanical issue
was a sticky brake caliper. I get 40
MPG on the interstate, 50 MPG on the
highway. My Civic hatchback had over
340,000 on it befor the engine went
belly up(Even then. I sold it for $250,
no haggeling, and it was in the paper
for one day). This would have esilly
gone as far. These things are getting
hard to find - if you find one, buy it!
I may well spend more money than it
would cost to buy another car just to
put this back on the road. They're that
OUTSTANDING fuel economy! Looks good,
handles good, rock solid reliability.
Spend the money to get the A/C working
if needed, all that glass makes it HOT
in the summer. Use honda timming belts
only. Go to Wal Mart and get a
headlight reminder, They're cheap and
easy to instal.
