    You are somewhat limited without a mount kit. There is a site for third gens somewhere. www.3g.com? Not sure. I believe you are pretty much stuck with a stock engine. Nothing else will bolt up without modifications.

    Anything can be done with enough money, but that car would probably be a money pit, and not worth the trouble IMO.

    If money is not an issue, you have several choices.

    Given the size of your car, a B series would probably be best suited to your needs.

    B16, B18, B20 VTEC. Each has a great aftermarket following, and could easily be built for boost. Once again, $$$$$.

    You will have a lot of wiring to deal with, and mounting issues. Your choice.

    An H22 is badass, but has less aftermarket support, weighs more, and has larger dimensions. This is why I mentioned the others.

    On a low budget, you could boost your engine, or boost a d-series, or whatever. Your stock engine sucks donkey nuts on a stick.
