get a SR20 engine in there if you want speed. If you choose to stay with Honda power use the CRV's engine.

Ignore all these ignorant ass answers above me. Hondas dont need 500HP to be fast. In fact they are pretty quick at 200ish.You prob have the D16Z6 on your ex but since i dont know the year i cant be sure. In whichever case they are not that diff. You can boost your current engine fro about 1,500 tuned and all at about 8-10psi which is good and that will give you maybe 180hp and about 15% less to the wheels. You have about 125hp which translates to about 106hp to the wheels. For the same price you can get a B18B swapped yourself and have about 144ft lbs of torque versus 106 or so. Id turbo the current engine since it will be a lot easier and i mean, its a turbo! Gotta love the pshh sound :-). Considering you dont have the sources or the knowledge to do the swap Ill say turbo. You willg et more torque with the B18B but for your case turbo. Even me with knowledge and all i would still turbo.D16Z6= 170-180HP B18B= 140HP

And now we have the person with the right answer me. The SOHC EX weither being 1992-1995 D16Z6 125HP OBD-1 or D16Y8 127HP OBD-2. Piston $300 Rods $300 Other $300 Labro $400 Cam $100 Boosting 16-20PSI on C16. My friend built his SOHC Del sol engine D16Z6 same as above piston, rod, cam on a T3/T4 ran 11.8 Spinning in 2nd gear and his car+turbo+build cost less then $7000 car was 3500-4000. I say stay with the single, look at this way its free motor, no mounts or swaps needed, if you blow it up its easy to find, B-serious cost B18B on hmotorsonline.com $2200+shippinghonda-tech.comhomemadeturbo.comturbod16.com

you got 2 good answers...the people who say turbo the engine....yes the b18 will have more potential for more power but if you ex is going to be a street car and your on a budget all you need is to turbo it and you'll be quick enough...if you go anymore than 10psi on the engine and with a good tune you'll break grip and just spin tires so theres no point in having more power if its a daily driveralthough the b18 will most likely be more reliable(if kept N/A) than a turbo d16 but its all in the tuning(the most over looking aspect in going turbo)plus 2000+ for the b18 to be swapped in while you can do a homemadeturbo set up for about 1000 you can spend the extra 1000 on suspension or biuld the motor
