Default B16a2 automatic in standard round nose

So I set myself the challenge of doing a b16a2 automatic conversion. I can only drive autos since I lost my leg in an accident.

There are a couple that have been done but not a huge amount of info out there.

So I bought a 92 crx, and all speed frame and went for it.

The engine and gearbox definitely doesn't fit due to the size of the gearbox. I ended up chopping the frame to pieces, only really keeping the rear tower mounts and back half of the frame. Had to make new mounts to move the engine a lot further over, you will see from the pics, it sits under the wing quite a way, to get the length of the gearbox in.

It means I will have to make custom lower arms, rear drive shaft mount, and drive shafts, but the engine is now in place in the car. Needs to come out now so I can finish and strengthen the subframe.

Just thought I'd share some pics so far.
