    Just wondering how long they made the CRX and if there was a mk1, mk2 or mk3.

    Did they all have the same engines?

    I think the 3rd Gen was renamed Del-Sol the second gen from around 1998 had the best engines. The US had a 1.5 and europe had a 1.4 and a wide range of 1.6 engines The 170 hp B16A1 is still quite impressive by todays standards.

    The Del-Sol ran from 1992-1997. The highest power output from a standard Del-Sol was 160 bhp. The same engine as the Civic VTi. This is the B16A2. The CRX was originally produced from 1984-1987. The second generation was produced from 1988-1991. As Waynne mentions above, the second generation inlcuded the 170 bhp version! The CRX was and still is a very popular car from modding enthuiasts. CRX's are often used as track cars.

    they might only have 160 bhp, but as prince mentions, thats still good by todays standards,
    plus their weight is the same as can of coke,so they can shift incredably quick
    your man hit vtec in our famous, but rubbish jack lynch tunnel
    i thought the walls were going to crack from the exhaust noise
