Default H22A vs Boosted D

So I am trying to decide between an H swap and a boosted Z6. This is my DD and I will be making long (17hours both ways) trips once or twice a year. I also belong to an autocross club and do that every weekend. So, my question is what do you guys think is a better engine to go with? I only want 250whp out of the engine. I like the D cause its cheap and easy to drop in, but I like the H cause it would be N/A (more reliable?). Cons, the D will be boosted and im not sure if its going to be able to handle all that driving and abuse. As for the H, good lord Iv heard soooo many bad things about this swap, cable tranny is junk, too heavy, breaks mounts, too much torque, cant lower your car cause of the oil pan scraping, axle rubbing.

edit: i know about the H2B but i really dont want my hood sticking 2 inches in the air

what do you think?

H22 would be fun just to hear vtak. But that gets boring and a blow off valve is more impressive. Boost the D, get a great tune and have a sweet DD. And you said "only 250 whp". All I have to say to that is - Lol.

uhhgg, I didnt wanna have to say this, but i think its the second time someones got on me for saying "only 250hp". I drive (most of the time anyway) a Mustang GT about once a week in the summers for the radio station i work for. Having said that, not only do i hate mustangs, i dont like the power it has, too much for me.

also, for autocross, wouldnt N/A be better? before the turbo kicks in the D is just a 120hp engine right?

unless you get a small turbo the spools instantly like a t25

I heard (as in not 100%)on honda-techthat the H engine weighs only 50lbs more. Thats nothing. And I think if you got good mounts like Hasports, they would not break, infact I have never heard that one before...

a low spooling T25 would be great for autocross, but wouldnt that be killed on your DD MPG? I say boost the D, BOV and D-series ftw!
