Where are u looking to start? Performance or looks? Let us know and we can help you from there.

I personally have to have wheels and a suspension drop first.

Thanks and I'm going for Performance first and some looks later. I plan to run my car in HS class in SCCA Solo 2. Then later run it in STS. So for now I want Adjustable Struts and drop Springs. Also I have the SOHC 1.6 Liter motor thats non VTEC. I want to know what the engine code for it is and I heard I can get the VTEC head off another SOHC motor is this true and where can I get the VTEC head. Thanks again.

Welcome. If you want to add the vtec head to your dx (D16y7), you need to get one from a civic ex (D16y8)

SCCA Solo 2 is awsome. I started in HS and am now in STS (soon SM, because of wheel size) like $5000 later, and about to spend another $2500 in suspension and brakes. I am addicted to tuning my Civic.
