Default 95 Civic EX swap

what is the best, in your opinion, engine swap for my 95 honda civic EX?
any engine, whatsoever, and price is not a problem.

idk, but when you get it figured out i'll take that d16z6 head and trannyoff your hands for you, and i'll take it for free. lol. jk

but if you want to give me it you can.

Once you swap the engine if you do, how much would you sell the head with distributor, intake manifold, throttle body, vtec solinoid and wiring harness, and sensors for... and the ECU?

Yeah...I'm with kokasian. Specify a budget. If money isn't an issue, then just do an RB26DETT swap. A GM LS7 will also give your civic a lot more power. The VW W16 isn't bad, either.

If money isn't an issue, get a W16 out of a bugatti veyron. Spent the rest of your non-issue money putting it into your civic with custom mounts/subframe to make your civic have the fastest engine in the world.

no money? Well, how much knoweldge is next. K20 takes money AND know-how, but if it was me i'd swap an h22 in there. Not TOO expensive, not TOO hard, and alot of torque and just fast all around. Maybe a mild build and a nice set of I/H/E and yu'll be loving it. GSR is a nice idea too. I think Pete once said the GSR felt about as fast as his old turbo D (5th gen shell)

^ H22 FTMFW!!! All said and done, it's less expensive than a GSR swap and H22s have 200hp at the crank (and 160ft/lbs of torue )

I just think it'd be fun to be like, "What's that? Your B16 makes 160 horsepower? That's funny, my H22 makes 160 ft/lbs of torque!" [8D]
