Welcome to Hp! Yeah the beta swap is the way to go. It was the best move I made and my accent is still running strong. You have the 05 1.6L DOHC 5-speed?

I beg to differ according to all info I've found I have a 1.5L DOHC... I could be wrong though. Then again according to carfax I have a 1.5L SOHC but I can look at my engine and see DOHC staring me in the face.

It depends on if you got an LC or X and if you have an american car or not. Because of the united states harsh emissions regulations (especially killa cali) the engine is up sized to the 1.6 to make up for the emissions crap robbin power. And yes the 1.6L is DOHC.

I'm still trying to figure out EXACTLY what the x3 x2 LC lc2 and all that exactly IS.... I'm not sure exactly WHAT I have anymore. I know it's a COMPLETE anomoly according to ALL paperwork I have at the moment. The paperwork from Carfax says it's a 1.5L SOHC 12V. But the sides of the car have the DOHC 16V stickers on them and the plug wire cover says DOHC 16V. The hood says the engine family is VHY1.5VGFFK So it's obviously a 1.5. I duno what I have anymore it's all a mass of confusion to me.
