You need to do a lot of reaserch before you start modifying your car. I can tell by your post that you don't really know what your talking about. So start reading. And just a heads up, you make d15 fast by throwing them away and starting with another engine.

For a daily driver ef hatch id say youre best bet would be to find a complete d16z6 and replace that worn out engine.

Don't forget to eat a lot of P.F. Chang's and Aunt Jemima's frozen sausage biscuts and take a huge **** weighing at least 8 kurics and then spray the outside of your crx with it and make sure not to use any clearcoat.

d16z6 or y8 head will bolt up. just gotta run the vtec lines from the sylinoid to your ecu. might be a shop around you that can help you out since it seems like no one who replied to your thread cares to.

ha ha, you could, but it sure as hell wouldn't call it fast

The "cheapest" and easiest option would be to run to the pink and pull...buy a 1990-91 Integra engine/tranny/ecu/shift linkage and axles for like $300

Get a cheap set of mounts and boom.....you gain 40hp and 36 ft lbs tq. There is nothing else for the money spent that will give you that kind of gain, especially tq, which 90% of people often overlook

sounds almost right...just not the 300 bucks part... maybe a tad bit more + labor time... and maybe surging to look up how to fix...and may fuel economy too. IDK these are the things to think about are you ready for the constant searching of the interwebs???

first you should see how much cash flow you have the like ol boy said go to pik and pull get that swap like he said . then rebuild that because you dont know what its a been .. then save some money and get a b16 head and put that on then boom lsv .. then get a b16 trans or a gsr trans .. as time gos by and you learn more you could have a bad *** car in time...
