1988 HONDA CRX, 5-spd, 17" ICW wheels with P20540R17, adjustable suspension, new headers, dual mufflers, new ZC engine(imported 150hp), new windshield & side glass





oh and the original owner has been an engineer for snap on tools for 15 years and also he gave me all of the stock parts. :)

Things I don't like:
-Grill
-Fog lights
-Rims

Things I like:
-Color
-ZC engine (actually it has 130hp)
-Stockness

$3000 is the max I'd pay for that CR-X, and it better be mint. How much mileage is on it? (it's too blurry in the pic)

You can ask anyone and search any site, the DOHC ZC engine came with 130hp. Maybe you have a different engine than the one I'm talking about? Post up a pic of the paper work, maybe we can figure this stuff out.

Either way, it sounds like you got yourself a good Rex.

i think i made a mistake by saying it was 150 power stock but with the exaust a and the cold air intake it puts out about 150 does that sound about right?

You're looking at a little over 130hp at the fly wheel. ...But is it SOHC or DOHC?? The DOHC is 130 stock.

not even close. intake maybe 2-5hp if that, and exhaust another 5 if you're lucky.

things i dont like.
1. price, $3000 is way too much for a crx even in good condition.
2. exhaust. dual exhausts on that car or any 4cyl for that matter is stupid.

I don't agree yes it is useless but it looks good and nobody has it so why not be different. It doesn't sound any different. I have it with a spyder rear bumper and it looks great. plus its about what he likes so nobody should flame him for his opinion. RIGHT?!?!?!?

By the way its a nice car and have fun driving it thats the best part. :tu

It is a dam nice car! I would have paid about 25-2800 for it but not much of a diff. so that doesn't matter. The rims, car itself, everything looks good.

Clean, straight body. If the interior is clean I'd say it's worth it.
I got dual exhaust too, but that's just because the guy before me had em on there. Will be the first to go when I can...sounds fine but I just don't like it because serves no purpose and the right side doesn't have an exhaust space. :rolleyes
i wouldn't have payed 3000 for it. not really a fan of crx's but nice though.
are you lost? You're on a CRX forum :idiots

actualy i have never seen the interior of a car this age so perfect before looks brand new the only thing wrong with it is that the dash around were the sterio is is messed up because he had the radio stollen thats also why it has new windows and for some odd reason there is and exhaust space for both exaust and i think it look great so i think i will keep them the only things im going to change on the body are
1. get it repainted the same color there are a couple of places that ahve chips.
2. i mihgt get 16in wheels for the front instead of having all 17s.
3. im going to have the windows tinted not sure what style yet im up for any input on that too.
