    Here it is my build of my 88 Crx SI. I've had the rex almost 3 yrs. I havent had to much time to work on it because I'm in the military and my rex is in california and i was in EL Paso Texas stationed in Fort Bliss. Little by little is has been coming toghether working on it on any chanse i got to sneak away to cali on holidays or long weekends.

    My plan is to buils a clean crx. not all crazy just restore it and give it a little of my own flavor.
    My motor of choise is a JDM B16.
    I got this rex for $700 dollars. The body was in immaculate shape, the only thing was the paint was fadded and also it ran great only problem was that the clutch was beggining to slip other than that it was smoooth.
    here are the pics from when i first got her.....enjoy

    I dot like to mess around anymore and buy one thing and put it on and sport it and buy another and paint it when i can afford it....I already learned that doesnt work. You buy something then another and by the time your done buying your body parts and can afford to paint it the parts are all messed up and pluss it looks like crap rolling with different color body parts. So the first thing i did was buy her a jdm frot end and strip the whole car even the engine and take her straight to for a new paint job.

    The front end only had a few little dings that weren anything serious so i was happy and also cost me $700 just like what I payed for the car...Ill keep you guys updated ass i get more time to get oline.

    I feel you man, I'm in the same situation. I really havent had time to work on my car neither. When you get to though I know it'll be a tight crx.

    Thanks everyone for the good coments. Sorry I havent been able to post more the past couple of days Ive been really buzy because im in the process of going back home from south korea and im finally going to be able to work some more on my rex......

    Here is so far what I have for my b16.
    The block was puched out .25 over to fit some .25 over CTR pistons the whole bottom end has also been balanced.
    The head already has been sent to the shop got instaled some supertech flat faced high compression valves with black nitride coating and REV dual valve springs and titanium retainers pluss the valves had a competition grind on them but they wouldnt tell me what they did to them. All the valve guides and valve seals have been replaced now i hopefully can get a P&P when I get back and im still undesysive on what cams to run but I do know I want some big cams because I will hopefully be running some itb's if everything goes good.
    Here are some pics ......enjoy.
    The CTR pistons compared to the p30's
