    Its a 1990 hacth but I can't tell what trim model it is. It has no badge on the back. Anyway, wiped out all my savings for the car, now I have no money for prom. (I'm sure my girl won't mind :unsure: ) Anyway, the next step is to swap the engine with the money I'll get from selling my daily driver. But I'm torn between the B18A and the first gen B16A. I mean the B16 makes more power, how could it lose to a B18A? On the other hand the B18A is cheaper and I only make $90 a week. The goal is to run a 14.1 on the dragstrip, with a dry nitrous system, later in life, after I get a better job, in goes a turbo. I can't decide.

    No he can't,it's a D series and won't accomodate a B series head.Does it have a sunroof?Is it dual point fuel injection or multi?This cn help you determine what trim it is.

    ummm the 88-91 Civic hatchbacks were either a DX or Si. i am guessing its a DX. look on the block and see what the engine code is thats stamped onto it and that should give you a better clue.
