some will say swap, some will say boost the d. it's up to you how you want to go about things. swapping will be less painful (most of the times), and boosting the d16y7 requires quite abit attention in order to boost properly. imo, a swap is easier considering you're looking at less miles on the engine, more room for improvement, and you can get vtec while you're at it, added displacement if wanted, better flowing head, and more reliablity (most of the time). both options will give you similar power outputs considering you invest the same amount of money.
