Default 99' DX Enigine Questions.

What engine comes in the 99' DX hatch is it a good engine to modify or would i be better off saving for a swap. Im not looking for anything crazy maybe like 150-180 whp cause it feels like its runnning like 50 whp.

save up for a swap. its more cost effective in the long run. or just a very mild turbo on yours.

mild turbo, yes. you have the d16y7, and you can get a turbo kit for a d16y8 and it will work. but youll have to do something with the throttle body. it needs to face sideways like the EX. you can swap on the ex manifold. that would fix it.
