Hey guys im kind of new here. so i have a 92 civic hatch CX and i want to make it a little bit faster. so i was wondering if i can use 12 valves instead of 8. or do i have to do a lot of mod. and the other questions is can i swap the trans and the valves from my 90 crx SI to this 92 CX Hatch.
thank you

you would have to change the whole head to run 12 valve setup what motor?
and on the tranny dont think it will werk cause the crx si trannys are cable where as civics 92 to present are hydro

16v is just a head swap away.

You'll need to verify that your D15B8 actually has pistons with 4 valve reliefs on it. Some CXs, particularly the early ones, may not.

First off verify there are 16 valve reliefs (Just like shifty said). Then we can help you more.
