Talking CRX motor swap --> VX

I am trying to get an estimate of what parts I will need and what the cost will be of throwing (If only it were that easy) a VX motor into my 89 CRX HF?
Hopefully I will have this baby up and runnin' here pretty soon, I have to put a new hatch on since the previous owner let it roll down the hill into a tree... Haha. I won't be doing the swap very soon but I do want to do it, most likely after all the body work is done. I am excited to see what kind of milage I will be getting without any mods! Well, it already has a passenger side mirror deletion. Factory I believe??
It would also be much appreciated if someone could enlighten me on how to find the lean burn state in my HF motor, if there even is one. Or just how to find the best speed to get the best mileage..

Anyways.. Any input would be awesome! (Christ I know you are out there, don't be afraid to jump in!.. Haha)

That's for an 85 though? Isn't it different generation?

There is no lean-burn in your HF.

is your hf toast or what? if its running driving you already have a super econo package. I could definitely understand if you got some kind of engine problem.
