Default does honda civic d16y a vtec? would a dc2 airbox make the car faster or an aftermarket one?

was wondering what type of vtec is my d16y engine and how do i make it faster. ive added a muffler, and now considering to install a dc2 airbox but dont know whether i should get an aftermarket simota airbox or a dc2.also getting a bigger intake tube. other than that what other things can i add but nothing exxtreme like an engine swap. and are turbos off ebay relaible? cheers.

well as of nothing extreme....not really much. and that air box or cai wont do nothing for power. either build the motor and boost or swap it for a better base to start with....check out and ask there or do some sculking to see what others have done. but playin with a d is not cheap..

and ebay turbos are it and youll see like millions of pissed off ebayers that bought turbos
