    Is it possible to make something good out of a 1997 Civic HB stock motor? It's a SOHC motor?
    How much HP you can squeez out of motor like this? With turbo and everything else possible? without blowing every thing out.. ;)

    could easily make it 140 hp n/a for a lot less than a b swap. VTEC head and integra pistons. Do a search for mini me and PM7 ZC or P29 Integra pistons.

    You could run up to around 140 to the wheels I would guess. I wouldn't reccomend turbo charging for just a stock motor, the benefit probably won't be worth it in your case. You would probably end up breaking all kinds of parts and being generally unhappy.

    Try Cold Air/Header/Exaust.
