obligatory flame for y7 vetch.

cmon, man. you drive a honda, make a point of knowing what's under the hood.

RESEARCH. all of this can be found on this website. browse engine building and search mini-me. i'm SURE you will find everything you need.

the engine in that car is a d16y8. if your gonna boost it you want dished pistons not p29s. don't go smaller with displacement you have a 1.6 liter stick with it unless it's gone then replace the whole thing, your uncle owns a junk yard right shouldn't be hard to find a decent engine to put together
