Default D16y7 or B18a1?

I currently have a 97 Civic Dx its got the D16y7(106hp) and I was planing on doing a mini-me and turning it into a D16y8([email protected]). Today I was told by a kid that he is junking his 1990 Acura Integra LS with a B18A1 ([email protected]) the engine runs fine and im pretty sure that he would almost give me the engine and whatever else I need I was wondering what it would take to put that engine in my car. Or if it would be more to my benifit to just do the mini-me and if it is possible to make the b18a1 into a vtec motor making even more power?

you will the need the rear mount bracket for the rear from an si im not sure if the integras have them the same way i think they do. try to find a b16 hydro tranny that will make some difference as well. and not all vtec motor make 200hp to the wheels
