Default Honda civic swap options...?

I have a 1997 civic hatchback. I want to make real fast. I want tl start with motor n trans swap. what engine should I go with... the new k20 series or sti. with b18 maybe. I already have the b16 si motor In it. I can keep that but one thing I hate is the trans is so short. dont worry bout money. I want the best

If you want to make it fast swap the whole car for something that isn't a shitty ricer.

Go K24 swap (motor from the acura tsx) way more torque then the k20 and faster too only draw back is that it doesnt have as high of an rpm range (7000k) but thats an easy fix just get some k20 heads and boom. btw all this is gonna cost you atleast 5 grand to do...

3000$ motor with ecu (with trans if youre lucky)

1000$ for kpro management system (you need this or it wont be fast... at all)

100-800ish for tune

plus 1000$ for labor and misc. parts

And id suggest getting a type s trans

Get an H22A it has pretty much the same stats as the k24 but redlines in the high 7k's my fuel cuts off in mine at around 8100. You can also pick up an h22a for around a grand, you will want the m2b4 transmission with that, it has good ratios and a limited slip diff. You definitely want an H22a
