    WS.

    If the engine is the original one and giving smoke then get it checked by reputable mechanic and ask for his advice. If its not repairable then you should consider swapping because it is usually the cheaper option. There are a lot of options for a swap which depends on your budget & what is it you actually want (power, economy, reliability, etc). The engine that most people opt for is d15b dual v-tec which gives good fuel consumption while giving optimum power for a daily driven car.

    What about performance of current engine? Compression test current engine. Get it rebuilt if possible. Or get assembly of same engine rather than complete swap (if you want to be more practical).

    Also, exi or vti?

    I want it to be a bit more powerful drive then it already is and also i mostly use this car so economy with power is best i think. It goes up to 160km quite easily and i want a bit more then that to have fun.

    Well (if you want to involve fun) then you need a b16, b18 or f20 swap add on turbo kit for a bump in the fun

    Question Repair?...

    Is a swap the only remedy for a smoky engine? No other options? Personally I think a swap is usually a bad idea. Rarely can our mechanics align the engine and related electronics seamlessly. Usually something or the other goes wrong and the car is stuck somewhere. The original engine I am sure can be rebuilt, if absolutely essential, by a well qualified mechanic. And I am sure this option would be cheaper too than an engine swap.

    Keep the swap option as a last resort.
