I think you need to transplant the whole engine, not just the heads. I did a lot of reading on CRX swaps, and I don't recall any swaps that just involved the heads. There are some other Honda/Acura swaps that work the way you're proposing, but not with the CRX, and more often than not in a swap you have to replace the whole engine.There are performance shops that will do a B16 swap into a CRX for you. You probably have one within reasonable distance.
