I would say do a motor swap it's worth it. Get the B16 or GSR motor. That would be the best bet. Or do my favorite swap a LS/V

build the bottom end and turbo it.......the d16 is cheaper to fix if it breaks, plus if u swap it you'll need a motor w/ob2 vs the cheap 1000 dollar ob1 b16 to keep it legal.

if you want good power in the long run do what jard said and start with the ls/vtec. or be a outcast with a quick sohc like 4 door said
