Definitely B-series. And as for what to do to it, it really depends on which B-series you start out with and how much money you have.

Between the B and the H, I would choose the B series cause it's more "swap-friendly" for the Civics.

well, aside from that, the Hs are heavy, have a massive footprint (you'll have almost no room to work on it while its in the car), they dont make that much more power over a B (lots more torque tho), they dont have the aftermarket support Bs have, and since their stroke is longer than their bore is wide...theyre not good for forced injection

on the other hand, theyre cheaper than the B series engines, and.......no...thats about it

the b20 isnt good for forced injection either because of its thin cylinder walls.
