Hi, I have a 1999 crv and it tries real hard to maintain highway speeds up a long mountain pass. Have any of you had both generations of the CRV to compare the the power of the 2nd generation motor??

Having both transmissions for a 1st gen, I know that the manual handles the hills like a champ.

The 2nd gen has a bigger engine and more power. So, by default, it will handle hills better.

So, that being said, I want to drop a 2nd gen engine in my V when/if it ever dies.
