    this will be moved once a mod gets on, or you can message one and request a move.

    The Y8 came stock in that car, so that would be the easiest drop-in, bolt-up option. The B17 and B18 would be nice, but you'd need a transmission also, and the correct mounts. Plus you'd have to deal with some wiring issues...

    any motor is boostable, just depends on how correctly your doing and and the tune.

    i would go with the d series.

    D16z6 of those engines. It will be easiest for you, and will still be somewhat peppy.

    your car is prewired for vtec already, wont have to worry about any wiring issues.

    either of those d series will be the fastest easiest swap.

    the z6 will just have a bit more pep to it.
