Default what engine do i have?

98 civic.. dx i believe... what engine comes in that? is it like D series?

i was going to get GSR engine a while back. but it turns out that i cant save my money long enough.. so is it possible to make the engine i have fast? its not v-tech. and i prolly wont get a different engine. so becides all the basic bolt ons. what else can i do. i need power. i was just about to buy a different car. but i decided to keep the civic since i did body stuff to it.

ive also looked at turbos and i havnt found one that fits dx. does that matter. like if i got a turbo thats for ex and put it on my dx. hrmmmm.

Seriously though, there's only about 40 billion Honda code lists out there. Kind of an unnecessary post... no need to get defensive about it though.

Cocky little noob aren't ya?
