Default 1987 CRX vs 1988 CRX Si?

If I plan on swapping engines for a B-Series, is there any difference between an 87 CRX and an 88 CRX Si?

Oops, I meant 89 CRX, not 87.

What up Spencer. Swapping a B-Series engine into a 88 or 89 CRX Si is all the same. No differences between the 2. There are a few differences between the 88 and 89 in terms of rear suspension, Seat belt mounting points and vehicle weight (88 model is lighter). Check out this link and it'll tell you all the differences between the 2nd gen CRX. Hope this helps and good luck with your CRX.

You also should compare car insurance quotes for cars before buying one, for example here -

the 89 and 88 CR-X are the same model, just different years. swapping that engine into either car would deliver the same results HOWEVER...

the 88 CRX Si that is on your list is a little lighter than the 89 CRX. but this isnt too significant of a difference (like 30 lbs) so it doesnt much matter.
