Default New here just wondering

Hi, my name is Jimmie and I drive a 97 Eclipse GS-T. I like Honda's import domestic whatever I just like cars so don't hate on my DSM! lol. My girlfriend is getting a 92 Honda Civic Sedan completely stock. She already has plans for some Rota GT 3's and she wants to drop it but she wants me to make it faster for her so I was just wondering how expensive and what it would take to get the car to have a nice kick. Thanks any info on the car would be appreciated.

Having owned 3 dsm's in my life, i think you will be supprised how well her car will take to mods/upgrades and not break as far as cost that is completely up to you. let us know your goals, or better yet through out a budget to fit in so we have an idea of what you can do, there is such a hugh difference between how much you would/will spend and how much someone else would spend. shop around, use the search function and read up before starting a project. Welcome to HCF toss up some pix of the ride civic and dsm

Hey Welcome to Honda Civic Forum, the best choice would be to swap it with the B18c5 found in integra Type R's pushing around 200WHP. If you want torque you could get an H22 which was a 2.2 liter the biggest Civic engine, the B18C1 the GSR pushing 180 WHP and 126 ft. lbs. of torque.
