New Car: 1989 ED9 Honda CRX – SiR Conversion

Today I took ownership of a second Generation II CRX, an ED9 with a B16A. Previously owned by another member of CRXaustralia, this little pocket rocket is my first V-TEC CRX, having had two D-series’.


I intend leaving as it is, save a few minor modifications:

– Power Mirrors
– Central Locking
– Custom Air intake Cover
– Delete Antenna
– Front Registration Plate Relocation
– Tow Hook
– Aluminum Boot Floor
– New Visors
– Map Lights

Currently the car has the following:
– Cusco front brace
– 15×8 Simmons v4 White Mesh 3-piece Wheels
– Apexi Vac 2.
– VTEC bumped forward to 4500
– Koni Adjustable Struts in front.
– Generic aftermarket struts in rear.
– Lowered Kings Springs all round.
– Battery Relocation to Boot with Kill switch.
– Black Recaro SR4 Replica Seats.
– Momo steering wheel.
– Aftermarket gear knob.
– Brand spanking new Dizzy.
– Hurricane Headers
– Hurricane Axleback with twin tip
– Weather Visors
– Cold Air Intake
– Half-Bay Wire Tuck
– Sony CD deck with USB
– 16v rear deck wing
– J’s Racing Replica Lip
– OEM Rear Mud flaps
– Tints all ’round.

CRX Worklog: Late Start


After over a year at the mechanics’, the little pocket rocket finally got its interior stripped out for the new carpet. A few minor tweaks for the audio cabling, and it’ll be ready.

The windscreen is already out, waiting for the delivery of its replacement. I noticed a few things that could get a tidy-up, including that damn climate-control faceplate – the close-second bane of CRX owners worldwide, behind the glove box.

I must remember to get that Master Bushing Set ordered in, too.
