    I have a b16 crx si I swapped myself. My wife loves it and drives it whenever she gets a chance. So now I need to get her, her own Honda so she will leave mine alone.

    I am buying a 1997 Civic Ex 2door. 5 speed
    It has light body damage and something wrong with the motor. Only 1000 bucks so this leaves a a lot of money to make this car right.

    My question is this:
    -while I’m pulling motor are there any upgrades or swaps I should think about sense I have the motor out?

    -as it stands I’m just leaning on about 6-700 bucks in head work and ,intake, header, exhaust.

    -keep in mind it does not need to be a rocket, just fun, just want to know if I’m looking over an easier and or better idea in this situation.

    Or for less money and almost the same fun, swap a b18b in there.

    have you ever considered building the motor you have? or buying another that doesnt need all the head work (D's are cheap). with a P&P, P29 pistons and some other Honda parts, you could have a D that would keep up with B's. Just a suggestion.
