I am honestly here to learn, so here it goes.. (honda question)
Okay, i know my engine (d16y7) is pretty shitty. Yes, I KNOW.

Now what i want to know, is there ANY way to honestly make this engine a bit faster? or should i just love it until it dies?

An engine swap one day isn't out of the question nore is turbo.

As far as engine swap, what do you think is the best bang for your so called buck? i'm talking low prices and higher prices. Best lower priced engine or best higher priced engine?

call me crazy, but i'm just looking to make my little honda more fun and faster, and I'm just not 100% sure on what to do.

If I were in your shoes:

Z6 bottom end, FJ Distributors Vitara Pistons and Rods, Bisi cam and valvetrain in a Z6 head
Precision Turbo, like a sc34, spa cast manifold, RDX injectors, and hondata or neptune
Y8 transmission

Should be good for about 300 hp reliable for under 2500 bucks.

Fun and reliable and cheap.

ARP headstuds
z6/y8 manifold swap (whatevers handy)
late model na FC injectors (450s? saturated)
255 walbro
ebay cast manifold
ebay wastegate
ebay intercooler + random piping
used name brand bov
t3/t4 50 trim .48/.63
chipped ecu + tune from a local

@10psi or so you you be in the 200hp range and you can easily do it for a grand or so if you take your time and do things yourself. It will make for a fun car and the mpg are still pretty good.

I had a d15b with fjt rods/vitaras and with the 50 trim it was a ton of fun. It needed an lsd badly lol.

Tunable ecu. Standalone. Something you can actually adjust the fuel map will help a lot. What will help more is someone who knows how to properly tune it

Yes that, you'll need someone to install it for you unless you can desoder boards. Also keep in mind just because your ecu is "chipped" it's not tuned... Tuning will require more hardware that local shops should have the proper hardware. (hulog, ostrich, and a chip burner.)

I'm guessing one is intake manifold and one is exhaust.
