The year was 1996 and several car guys and I were hanging out in
a Vacaville garage. The Garage belonged to a good friend and fellow
car guy by the name of Rick. Rick had an old eighty-eight Honda
CRX. The guys and I were attempting to shoehorn an Acura Integra
engine in the tiny CRX. This is not an easy task as the Integra
engine is much larger than the original Honda power plant. We were
doing this engine swap back before it was common. In a way we were
pioneers or madmen. It goes without saying that a job like this is
tough and takes a lot of ingenuity and well...cussing.
