Default Should I do an engine swap?

I have a 94 civic ex with over 200k miles on it. I just got it passed down to me and I was wondering if I should do an engine swap. I want to supe it up and stuff. What engine should I get? I'm pretty new to all this fast car thingys.

Go to your local community college and take a engine 101, suspension 101, diagnositics, etc class they will teach you all you need to know for a inexpensive price.

For your Civic, A B16 or B18C1 swap would work wonders.

Without any knowledge nor tools don't even try yourself. Go to you favorite local speed shop, ask them for a quote to rebuild the engine, then a quote to rebuild the engine with performance parts.

Building FAST engines is NOT cheap, more noobs think that a CAI, cold air intake is a huge deal, it is not. Hot fast car is fun, a blast, but cost some money dude.
