ok, i guess im one of the few people in the world that cant stand driving a standard. i hate it, to me its aggrevating. so my question is, i have a 97ex, i want to a motor swap, the vic is a auto right now, so what do i look for when looking at motors an which to choose? please go easy on me , im a newbie to the whole import/civic scene, got the car for 500 so i couldnt pass it up. im not lookin to race anybody, but i want to have just a lil bit of get-up-an-go when i need it. probably add headers, some sort of quiet exhaust an intake. any help would be much appreciated guys. thanks..
