Default Newbie lookin for insight


What engine do i have? See anything non stock/oem? What is it?

Whats this? Is that good or bad? Pros and Cons?
I'm sure there are few of you how will troll me but I need some help non the less. The entire process of blogging is nerve wrecking to me. I know nothing about my dream build except what's in my imagination. This is my first Honda and I want to make it one of certain standard. I have a 95 Civic Dx. Its already had some work done but what exactly I can't say by just looking off hand. I was hoping one of you could. Also side note who can I link with in Las Vegas? But anyways I would like to have hella power but be a sleeper 😏. Can someone tell me what's been done off the few pics I have or at least what engine I have lol? If I'm leaning towards autocross any suggestions. What if I want the best of Both drag and cross?

That's not the stock engine for a 95 DX, at least not the head. Also of course you see a "cold air" intake pipe, aftermarket exhaust header, "coilover" springs, and an aluminum lower control arm, none of which are stock.

This build doesn't look like a terrible hatchet job-- but the general rule (already too late by the time people get here) is don't buy a car that's already modified.

Also see Aftermarket Engine mounts and I could be wrong, but that looks like a Skunk 2 Intake manifold. For some reason it just does not look like it is stock.

thanks for that honesty I know now. lol.
are any of these parts even worth keepings for my later build?
I know seat time matters more than anything so I plan to go to the track to meet and greet and maybe get some time in.
anyways I'm looking for an ECU pre tuned if possible just because I know thats a primary component to the end goal.

also how do I find out where the engine came from? how do I know which tranny I have? are there pros to that engine with those mods vs what would've been stock? also based off the picts what class would I be in if I wanted to race?

I honestly can't tell forsure if it's aftermarket. If it's Skunk 2 I'm assuming it would be better then the stock manifold off that engine. Maybe some clearer pics would be good for further inspection.
