Hey, i'm getting a 93civic dx hatchback pretty soon, and i was trying to decide between doing an engine swap or just build up the d15 and put a turbo on it. The previous owner is a friend of mine, he has dc sport headers, cold air intake, custom high flow exhaust (still has stock cat though), and some 15" racing wheels. I'm going to have about 3grand to spend and i could either dump that into the engine and save up for a turbo or buy a b16a and save up to do the swap and later build it and turbo. I'm not looking for straigt drag car, but i want something that can lay down 250whp when i'm done with it. Anyway thanks guys
