Default What engine should I put in my Honda Civic Del Sol?

It has over 200,000 on the engine and tranny. I want to swap out the engine and clean the entire car, new paint and all. the car was free. I want to know what the absolute most efficient engine for this car is! or the most powerful!

Just drop in a D16Z6, it came standard in Del Sol SI models and gets good MPG, or go research all your options and don't let people pick for you...

The best engine in honda and the most powerfull that can be aligned and fitted to del sol is B16A VTEC, B18C Vtec or K20A VTEC. The most powerful delsol in the world was the turbo charged B18C VTEC del sol 0-60mph: 3.1 sec it overrun: gallardo, f430, GT2, Skyline GTR R34 vspec, M6

You are a ****ing moron. A K-swap can't be "aligned" into a Del Sol. Do you have any idea how much fabricating you have to do to get a K series into just about anything other than an '01+ Civic? Do you think the B16 and the B18C needs to be fitted with vtec? They come with vtec. No need to mention vtec in there.

To the OP: D16Z6 is prolly your most economical and time conscious swap. They can be picked up for pretty cheap, and they are reliable and mod friendly.
