    start with research. by that I mean plug in 91 civic, and just see what comes up. You may want to swap, or change the tranny out with a 5sp, or something.

    On that note, I would recommend a B18A1 swap. Plenty of bang for the buck in an older civic, and it's not too complicated.

    Yeah first off I believe you have a d15b1 engine, if so it will not handle any boost before blowing up, plus even with boost you may only get about 100hp, ejclide is correct choose another more powerful engine to start out with b18a is a good start, handles boost well (if you decide to) etc. some of the D-series guys on here may be able to help you out also.
