Depends on which stock engine you are talking about. Really the only stock 5th gen motor worth putting a turbo on is the D16Z6. But if you have the cash just go with a swap because later on you can turbo the swap and get some awesome power.

uuhhh....since you dont have on yet...try to find a civic si, i know its a civ forum but, if you can find an integra gsr, then get one. but the best swaps would be the k20, b18c1, b16. theyll range anywhere from 5-2000 bucks. most the b motors shouldnt exceed 4000 bucks though.
