    He means that w/e you put in it won't matter b/c his car will prolly eat you Civic for breakfast lunch and dinner and crap out the rims after its done....

    But seriously ... i would go with a B18 for a civic.... if you had an Accord like me then you could go H22A .... but B18 Turboed will work well... you'd smoke the imports in town.....

    Re: best motor?

    right now you have a d16, which is worthless. you could swap in a b18c5 (itr motor) but that wouldn't be cost effective. i'd go for a b18 either from an ls being as they usually go for cheaper and are great to turbo (forget the specific code) or a b20. of course you can always go for a K block or H block but i dont see the point really. if you're going to spend that much money midas well just buy a real sports car
