    How bout this. Take it out for a drive and floor it, you should feel some kind of difference at 4000-5000 rpm.

    ur from the US right?

    ive been trying to learn as much about this shit as i can so here is the scoop. i figure that honda released a 98 civic EX in the USa and the same car as a 98 civic si in canada. does that make sense? i took my car out. as far i i can tell the shit gives between 4 and 5 thousand rpm like ive been told. So you all have helped out much and if any of u have anything to add please feel free to do so.

    thank u!!!

    Good to know. Ok I ordered a german v-chip for my car. It does something with the air intake timing i think. I bought it when i was drunk and bored. i know this doesnt attach to the motor but is it a bad purchase???Click picture to go to the details of the site i got it from!!!

    if your still wondering if you have the d16y8...which you do...you can look for yourself by opening your hood, looking at the left side of your block in the front theres an engine code that will say exactly what your engine is.
