Default EX engine swap

Right now I am split on an engine swap. Its either going to be a B16a2, or b18c5. In your opinion which would be easier to run with a turbo and in a 98 EX? Id also like to be able to put it in myself and the help of some more wiring friendly cohorts, so ease of install is also something Im seriously sonsidering. Thanks

The c5 isn't a great engine to boost unless you lower the compression a bit.

I just knew the c5 had more horses, but I wasnt sure if it was better to use. I also had a feeling they would harder ton install. Im just looking for the most bang ofr my buck.

Actually the c5 is a direct fit into your car.

the b16a2 has 160 horsepower, while the b18c5 is 195, not a huuuuge difference, but noticeable
