    To make a 1st gen rex fast,swap in a B16A,after that's up to you and your wallet how much building and boost you want to do.

    yeah like he said. b -16. and dont let anybody tell you different. it will be the cheapest Vtec swap that you can do for your car. it will be fast from the get go and will rule when you go turbo. yes a type r would be fater bla bla bla. but a b-16 is cost effective and will give you the opportunity to spend more money going turbo.
