Default A20A4/dohc vtec swap?

I have quite possibly my craziest engine/transmission swap idea in a while.

Back in the day, people used to take the A20A motors form 86-89 Accord and swap the heads for B20B and B20A1. The same can be done with F22B1 and F23B heads, as well. If so, an H22A head should also fit.

The A2k5 5-speed trans from the 86-89 accord has decent ratios, but apperently the gearbox can be swapped for a D, or B series. Maybe an S20, or S4C:?

So here's the swap:

A20A4 block

H22A Head (use F22/23 head gasket)

D16Z6 Dizzy

OBD-1 harness

Chipped/socketed P28 ECU

D16 flywheel

D16 clutch

A2K5 transmission

S20 gear box

This would be going into a 1g CRX...Because that would sweet.

I know some people will say ''Oh just swap in a B or H series vtec", but the pint is, this is fun and unique. Its a cheaper than a full B/H swap + The block is cast iron and very turbo-able.

If it's possible to run B - Series Rods...I want to do that.

What do you think of that?

Going to do some more research. If anyone knows something about this, or knows a site, do share.

Its not that crazy, learn this, with the right amount of money you can fin a W16 Quad Turbo o a CRX, all day... all days buddy, it is and always has been only matter of money.

Look, you can use a car performance simulator to virtually do this crazy mods and run simulated tests to find out how your car would perform with them and decide if its worth or not the money
