Dear forum....HELP!!!!

I have a 96 civic dx with short ram air intake, headers, and a piggyback chip(just the intake temp). I wanna do mini me but have 150,000+ miles. I just got spanked by a stock 95 si and can't let it go. would a mini-me do me justice or would i need to get a new motor all together. It's a daily driver/racer. College student working on budget here....

Swap it out. For the time and money you'll put into a D15 mini-me, you'd be better off with a completely fresh platform to start on.

y'know, ive only been a part of this forum for ten days now, and it seems to me that theres been at least 10 new threads started about 'what is the best swap for my ride'. seems to me like we should make a sticky where ppl post their car adn someone replies with reccomending engines

Nah. I think that would get really long and confusing, and it would probably go off topic every 5 seconds. There are swap sections for every generation, but nobody seems to want to use them.
