So then. I'm looking for an engine + manual transmission I can just drop into my ES Civic. It currently has the stock D16W7 Vtec with a 5-speed manual. A little work is also acceptable as it needs to be swapped back to the D16 for yearly iNsPeCtIoN. I'm looking to slap out around 200 - 300hp in the end.

It's a lot of work to swap out and back every year.

might be easier to just do a turbo kit or something and just swap out the manifold/bare min to get it to pass.

I would need a normal or 3-stage vtec head and ECU to make that work. The computer in my car is non-programmable sadly...

Why do you need a vtec head to run a turbo setup?

There's plenty of ways to do it without EFI. they are old-school, but something like a VAFC hack or fmu can work for a small kit.
