Modify or swap?


New Member
What's up everyone? I have a 1990 hatchback std. Got it from the original owner who kept it well maintained and had the stack of maintenance records to prove it. So the car runs great, but I need more power. My question is should I modify this engine or should I do a swap? I'm planning on changing the 4spd to 5spd regardless. Is the mini me build worth it? If I do swap o want it to be as direct bolt on as possible. Something I can take out of a wrecked car and use nothing fancy. Thanks for any info.

Swap to another d series motor. The biggest thing you'll have to do is convert from DPFI to MPFI.
