Default d16y8 swap for a DOHC d16a1?

Ok right now I have a d16y8 in my civic, but I found a GREAT deal on an Integra DOHC d16a1...It has less hp and tq stock then the y8 but it is a DOHC and I figured I could do more with it. It's only $142. Is it worth it. I probably wouldn't actually swap it in my car now but maybe buy another body and put it in there after I did a bunch to it. Would it be good as a project engine and can you make them a lot faster? Will a b16 head fit on there...PLEASE HELP

b16 head wont fit. if its for a project car, get a 91 or older and it would be a GREAT swap.
