im pretty sure that your 97ex has a D16Y8 motor sohc v-tec.

anything w.0 turbo, nos, superhargers to make your car faster is a swap and a b18c1 is a good swap for your car or a b16

motor swap is out of the ? right now but its coming in the future, the dealership i bought the car from said it had a v-tec but it doesnt say v-tec on the engine, and it dont have the v-tec decals on the side.
