Default i just recently bought a 1987 honda crx, what would be the best engine to swap right in ez.?

i just bought a 1987 crx, i read something about 87 89 integra engines. but im no mechanic, ive got a buddy of mine helping me out with the work and im just trying to get this done. i dont know shit about cars really i dont even have a license yet but i bought this car as a motive to do so, so if i can figure out what i need to get the job going, it would be much appreciated. thanks

Your first mod should be to shave your door handles and then get a two way pager alarm before you sunk in a lot of money and have someone steal and strip your ride like they did to me.

Any B-series, b16,b18,b18c1,b20 etc. But you picked the wrong generation of Crx buddy. Since they came carburated, you will need to get a complete new wiring Harness.You will have to wire in the VSS, ELD, and the Distributer. Find someone that makes mounts for that Year Crx, 88-91 Crx mounts will not work. You might have to make custom mounts. There will be a lot of wiring involved just to remind you.You will have to make a custom exhaust to fit. There is a lot to do, but if you had a 88-91 Crx, life would have been a lot easier. Oh and again there will be a lot of wiring invloved.
