I have a 1998 Civic DX coupe with 140,000 miles on its' stock non-vtec D16 engine. I feel that the time has come to switch to a VTEC as soon as possible. The rest of the car is stock except for the Injen cat-back exhaust. I need to know which engine would be easiest to swap with mine. I would love to get my hands on an H23 with a H22 head on it but that is far fetched and would suck to install. I need some of you people that have swapped with a similar car before to help me decide what engine (VTEC only:must..have..more..power..must..beat..father's..'05 6.0L GTO) and transmission(manual only: I HATE automatics), and other parts (ECU, Mounts, etc.) I should look into. Thanks.
