    the CR is low enough to put some NOS on it just dont go blowing yourself up with it, really youi should just swap it out for a bigger motor B16A, B18B, C1, C5 or a B20/CR/VTEC. your not going to get much out of your stock motor

    if your just looking for something to have a little fun throw a bottle in there
    if you just want a little more power to tool around with do a "mini-me"
    otherwise a full swap really is your best bet

    if you decide to do the full swap stop spending money on that engine.... put any "mod" money twards saving for a swap... no point in modding an engine your getting rid of....
    just do the maintanance on it so it lasts till the swap so you dont blow it up early like i did :)
