My 2004 Honda Civic LX with a D17A1 needs a new engine. Would the cheapest option be to buy another D17A1? What other options do I have? I will be paying a mechanic for labor.

The junkyards should be loaded with d17a1 motors. You won't be able to swap a vtec in that car cheap if that is what you are wondering. The computers would need to be swapped and then the keys wont work anymore until Honda re-flashes them.

The JDM d17a only comes in Vtec IIRC.

Might be easier to rebuild the original then try and hassle with sourcing a replacement which mightve been sitting for years in the elements.

Depends on what you broke?

Rods? Valves? Head Gasket?

Your cheapest option is fine a running one that's the exact same as yours and go, next option find junk yard one and rebuild,
