    Welcome. You probably don't want to spend the $ to make your old 2.0 faster. The next mod that you should logically do is a chip, Probably GIAC is the best. That is good for about 3-5 horsepower, but much nicer drivability. After that, the next mods to get any realistic gains would involve a turbo or supercharger which aren't a great idea for an engine with 200k on the clock.

    If your brother's civic is swapped then you can forget about making your car faster. mods on an aba is pretty useless if your looking for big numbers,however a chip would be a nice upgrade. TT makes a good chip for the 2.0 GIAC does also.

    You want your car to be fast? First step, sell the 2.0 and buy a faster car.
    I've had one so I speak from experience.
    Anyways, welcome aboard.

    A vr swap is pretty simple if you somewhat of average mechanic skills, its practically plug and play in the mk3 depending on the model you have

    MK3 gas flaps don't have a release button, it should auto un-lock when the car is unlocked.
    As for the rear wiper you need to push the wiper stalk away from you. One push and it is on (intermittent), push again to turn off. Push and hold will operate the wiper at regular speed and squirt the rear window.
    If you're interested, I have a haynes manual for the mk3 2.0. It's not as extensive as a Bentley manual, but it would probably come in handy for you.
