90 civic hatchback with the 1.5 5-speed 4 cylinder. Im willing to just trick out a nice V4, but if i can some how fit a V6 in with out having to change the tranny, then i'd rather do that.

start with a Si engine... I think its the B16A that will do the trick, not sure. Im sure others will tell you. Im moving this to the engine department where you will get more attention.

Check out the ED-EF Swaps on the Main Page. That'll give you some ideas. Then, once you have boned up on that and have a general idea about what engine you want/can afford, google it, looking for specs, more info, and places that sell that type of engine.
