Default Engine Upgrade

I have a 1996 Honda Civic CX. The engine is gonna be dieing soon im sure its got high *** miles and i have been allotted 5000 to buy myself a nice new engine.. I wanna get my moneys worth. Some friends have said get the b16a2 and get a turbo kit and other have said go for a h22. I was looking at them both. Now how in teh hell do i know if a h22 will even fit. I dont wanna buy something that im gonna have to turn around and sell cause teh **** dont fit ya know. Well let me know what you guys think i should do.... Im running out of time and i wanna doa Swap... So let me know what yall think
