The Honda Civic originally started off as a small car suitable for getting around town and being able to fit into even the smallest of parking spaces. However, as the car evolved it has taken on a sportier persona and the CRX pushed the Civic further into this market with its smooth styling and flat back.
Suddenly it became clear that the Civic was good for modifying and for the import builder looking around for a good car to work had plenty to choose from with the Civic CRX, it is a versatile machine with a lot going for it, even today almost twenty years after the last models rolled off the production lines.
Surprisingly the cars wide choice of engine start with a 62 HP 1.5 litre power plant. However, at the other end of the scale there is the 1.6 litre VTEC engine that offers the driver access to around 150 HP, quite a contrast and this is what makes the car so interesting to modifiers, it is the complete range of choices available.
A lot of work has been done on this Civic, both inside and out, it is one of those cars that is the complete package, normally the work would concentrate on performance or looks, this project has done both and in style the body blends in nicely with the original lines, while the engine has been tweaked in all the right places, it is classic example of dedication to a project.
These are the features and specs of this modified Honda CRX:

Product Description of the AEM DRYFLOW Synthetic air filter:
AEM Short Ram intake systems are an economical alternative to our Cold Air systems and deliver performance, value and ease of installation over any other short inlet intake. Our Short Ram intakes install easily under the hood and cost less because we use less material to manufacture them. During the development process, we found certain applications respond favourably to shorter inlet lengths over our longer Cold Air designs. For these applications (denoted in the search results page), we offer a Short Ram system only. We perform extensive temperature testing to locate the filter in the coolest area of the engine compartment, which allows our Short Ram systems to achieve the lowest inlet temperatures possible. Please refer to our temperature testing procedures for more information.

Product Description for the Skunk2 Sport Shocks 1988-91 Honda Civic/ CRX:
Skunk2 Sport Shocks is a new line of high performance factory replacement shocks that use many of the same technologies and manufacturing processes as some of our more advanced damper systems. The dual-tube design features a hardened, chrome-plated and super finished ground shaft, and precision valving resulting in added durability, reliability, long seal life, and smooth operation. By offering the Sport Shock, Skunk2 is taking an integrated approach to suspension tuning even at the most basic level. Sport Shocks are specially designed to work in conjunction with Skunk2 Lowering Springs and coilovers. Sport Shocks are designed with shorter shock bodies and short strokes so they will perform better and have more travel and be more durable at lowered ride heights. When used with Skunk2 Lowering Springs or Coilovers, Sport Shocks offer exceptional control, handling performance, balance, and comfort at a price that cannot be beat.
