Default 1996 honda civic hatch engine swap

I've been thinking about buying a honda civic hatchback. And i finally found one that fits my standards when it comes to its condition. However, I am thinking about dropping in an acura rsx type s engine or and integrat type r engine .... I would really like to hear what you guys think about this and if you can give me as much info as posible
Thanks alot in advance

the type s engine is amazing, but the swaps into anything older than an 01 are VERY new, and seem somwhat difficult. as for the ITR, the DC2 integra engine will drop right in. a little bit of wiring, and its done. could be done in one day, will probably take 3-4, maybe longer because of needing a few little parts here and there. personally, i would go with the c5 if you plan on going all-motor. that is a great combo.
