Default I wanna do motor swap!! Final decision for hp. WHAT MOTOR??

Hey i wanna do a engine swap on my 89 honda civic hb dx, cuz its only pushing what like 90hp tops. What motor is the best for daily driving but still has punch. Id like a easy swap no fabs or anything. I know there still will be some. But dont got alot of cash. Was thinking of doing a Zc and just fixing the wire harness problem. Let me know thanks. ........ Post engine and hp and what needs 2 be done to make it work. Thanks
