I currently drive a 97 / Civic EX, First I am looking at a Tranny switch to an Manual, but I was wondering.... for everyday use (with some racing of course.... just on the street) is the D16Y8 worth the work to upgrade, anyone have any horror stories or opposite? I could also save for a better engine such as a B18C1 engine... I have looked into different options, but wanted to see what you more experienced modders had to say on the subject? Also if I was to buy the B18C1 with a tranny, could I or would I have to use that tranny anyways? Keep in mind that I am a nOOb in this area.
