    do a little research man. there are a lot of articles on here explaining what it is, what car it's out of, hp. i would help, but how would you learn.

    but to answer your question about mods, what is your hp goal? what kind of driving? how many miles are on it? what is your budget? come on man, help us help you.

    if i was you, i would just save for a stock d16z6 or maybe an ls b18b. the ls swap can be found for less than $1000. that's what i would do.

    check out hmotorsonline.com, they have a d15 vtec motor, tranny and ecu for like $650 plus shipping, the package comes with everything you need to swap you cx motor to a 130 hp motor. The only tricky thing is finding someone to do the wiring or you can research it yourself on the internet or here at hondaswap to do the vtec wiring. you will have to use your exisitng wiring harness from your cx and wire that to the new harness(from new engine) and then wire the vtec ground and knock sensor into the new ecu. That motor (d15 vtec) is a direct bolt in swap. Figure 130hp engine, full exhaust (no cat), header, intake, skunk 2 intkake manifold, stage 2 clutch, and a 12lb flywheel= 1445hp, maybe mid 15s in the 1/4 mile time.

    You can do a mini-me with the B8. There's a guy on D-series.org that's building his D15B8 and has made 120whp so far IIRC, and over 50mpg. If you look in the right places, you can find a Z6 swap for under $300. :)
