do you want a dohc vtec? there are a couple of different motors in 88-93 SIs, and both of them have less power than yours. i think youre looking for a DOHC VTEC.[sm=smiley20.gif]

im pretty sure its a d16y8 motor thats v-tec......mmm....v-tec......lol anyways umm yeh the 88-93 motors are non-vtec which means less hp. to be honest cause im an honest guy if anything to do to the car you should boost it. a swap is also a good idea but you know i think boosting would be good 4 u

If you swap you should go a little newer at least to get a hydrolic tranny
