well if you have teh d15b2, you dont have a SI....you probably have a dx and you not looking to high on horsepower. There are many different swap options, but Intake Header Exaust wont get you very far with a 90hp engine. ZC swap is pretty easy, and that would give you about 130 HP and you could use the same transmission and everything and only have to wire to MPFI. Check out these sights and maybe it will point you in the right dirrection on which swap you want to do.
