Default Engine Swap

So I have a 96 civic dx hatchback and I'm just wondering wat type of engine I should go with. I really dont know whats the main difference between the B16 and H22 is, other then the horse power. Is there any sites that I can go to learn about em? Or some helpful suggestions from ppl?

the h22 is all aluminum and dosent like forced induction or spray. the b16 is a great motor to go with and so is the GSR b18c1. both the b16 and b18 can be boosted to about 10psi with fuel mod's that can support it, ie. 450cc injectors with a resistor box. you can expect to make good strong power with a boosted set up. if you want to go all motor, the H22, K20, b20 are all good motors but theres alot of custom parts with goin with the h22 and its heavy very heavy compaired to the b16.

but it basically comes down to how much you want to spend and what your goin to be using the car for, ie. daily driving, strip, road track and so on.
