    someone probably swapped it out...not rlly a big deal..but if you want more acceleration look into a better geared tranny and maybe some motorwork...or just swap it out for a bseries

    looks like a crx head to me, but the b1 has weaker rods than the other 88-91 civic/crx motors it came with i think 72hp

    well if your not wanting much more hp, then a d15b swap or b18a1 swap would be ok

    none of that will work in a d series motor. you can get a newer d series for under 500 bucks then you could get a good name brand turbo kit for about 1300 bucks,

    depends on the buck lol, i think you should just get a obdo b16a. but if you cant swing that mutch just get a d16 from a 88-91 si then you can build that one up perty nice
