    200? 500? 700? How much do you want to spend?

    Well, I'm really not sure. Is it even worth modifying, or should I just swap the motor and then worry about it.

    your motor could take 2000 horsepower if you put 65 pounds of boots in it. but, it would only last one maybe two seconds before exploding.

    swap it out

    When it comes to hp figures it is about how much $$$ you have, I have seen 1.6's running 10's on FI and I have seen 1.5's run 10's on motor. Anything can be done but the question is what do you plan on having after your project is done. Do you want Ac, Ps, daily driver, autocrosser,,etc etc....what do you want out of your ride.

    Well, According to the Honda high performance book by joe pettit i looked out your question and this is what i came across! 1.6 dx if the motor is healthy you could get 45 to 50% more power.... hope i could help!
