Default 1990 Honda Civic Question?

I'm new to this stuff,but i have a 1990 Honda civic lx sedan its has an auto trans i believe it has a d15b2 engine. my civic has 167k miles, its a good car but i want a stronger,faster engine but don't know which one, but it has to be able to drive an AUTO trans. I live a California, and i believe that some engines don't pass smog.

Can you guys give me suggestions or ideas on what to do?

you can put pretty much any engine you'd like. it all depends on your wallet. your car will pass smog as long as you have all the emission sensors and the exhaust is not to modified. I would go with a d16 since the engines are very similar and it would probably be cheapest choice. go with a d16z6 found hatchbacks or a d16y8 found on sedans and coupes.

Dont waist your money, sell the honda and upgrade to a stronger faster car. With the money it would take to get a different engine plus make sure your electronics will even work with a different engine is totally insane especially trying to pass cal smog, dont even bother
