Default for non vtec. like a b20 non or b18b out of an Ls because it would be better for your tranny. all those sites have good motors so unless u have something against ordering from a shop online there ya go. good luck

your motor is a d16y8 which is vtec.. sometimes it says vtec on the valve cover and sometimes it dont.. either look for one on ebay which are pretty cheap or upgrade your motor to a b series like a b16a or b18c.. but your motor already came with vtec to begin with.. its an ex model.. I bet it has a sunroof, power windows and doors, its either a coupe or a 4 door..

One of the best gateways to used parts is of used engines on it. Many will be warrantied.
