    You need to do some research.

    Set a power goal, and build for it. Don't just say I'd like an engine swap. Thats too broad.

    How much power are you looking to get?
    You say daily driver, but that has alot of different meanings. I've seen 500 whp Civics that are daily driven.

    What's your definition of quick? Like 14 seconds or 10 seconds? Maybe 12 seconds?

    14 seconds is better than 20
    12 seconds is quick
    10 seconds is fast

    If you want a daily driver that's relatively quick compared to other traffic on the streets...I'd say you're fine with the d16y8 you got there. Just get a bolt-on turbo kit and tune for say...250 whp MAX. That'll be quick for daily commute.
