Default Mini me swap for '97 hatch? Noob question

Is there a mini me swap for the '97 hatch? How much h/p is it good for? Does the aftermarket intake and exhaust still fit?
I'm guessing the ex head is used for this swap!

Bump
If i'm going to install a turbo, would the mini me swap be worth the effort? Any input on the hp with a t25 turbo from the eclipse gen 2

yes, for a mini me swap ur going to need a dx block with the ex head. i'm pretty sure all the aftermarket parts should still fit, cuz most of those d series are basicly the same. as of the turbo i believe it should still fit as of a d series engine.

With the mini me swap, does it have the same hp as the ex? 125hp
And what header does it use? dx or ex?
If i installed a turbo, is the mini swap a waste of time/ money?

You need an ex header and yes, it should have the same hp.
