    I bought my girlfriend an auto 1995 Civic LX last week and now the engine is having hella problems and not to mention its slow. Its a non-Vtec 1.5 liter engine and I'm planning to get a new/used engine but I want a V-tec engine in her car. However, I don't know shit about honda engines [​IMG] ..I'm a Toyota enthusiast not a Honda one. It would be really helpful if you guys list some possible engine swaps for the car. Thanks.
