"Although a car nut, at 80 my body has become a classic, so my loss your gain. VIN JHMED8365KS000610 I bought this 1989 CRX HF in June 06, 2008 for $2039.50. The mi1es were 183,125, I planned on restoring it. Miles as of 08-19-20 are 183,336. Miles Driven in eleven years are 211. I don't have the storage space left for 5 rides, so it needs to go. I've parked it beside my house this year and now it won't stay running. You can prime the F.I. and it will run until the fuel prime is used. I am guessing it needs a fuel pump. The longest distance I've driven it was 60 miles. The vehicle came from Colorado, expect for around the rear finder wells it has less rust than most CRX's. I ordered the metal wheel well repair inserts and they go with the car. The Engine was replaced before I bought it with a DB7 102hp engine. I checked the compression, on all four cylinders after purchase they were very good and within specifications. I have the original seats but they need covering."

Looks decently clean. Somebody swap an Insight engine into it please. :D

Do you mean a Gen1 Insight without the hybrid elements? Is that actually possible? It would be a 20% drop in HP over a stock CRX HF, yes?

Stock 2nd gen CRX HF had 62 HP @ 4500 RPM. Insight (without IMA) had 67 HP @ 5700 RPM. This CRX, like most, has been swapped.

I'm sure the swap is possible, but it wouldn't be a drop-in. I've often wondered if the IMA motor can be removed if a Fit flywheel/clutch is used. If left in place, the IMA motor can be used as an alternator.

I'd keep the electric motor and use it with a meanwell to charge the 12V, more efficient than an alternator. Without the battery it still has similar power to the stock CRX but with all the beauty of lean burn. Completely different engine type so it wouldn't be a direct drop in, but then again most engine swaps aren't. Both are small engines that in terms of size shouldn't have a problem fitting inside.
