Default MiniMe/manual or D15B/manual swap

ok so a friend of me is picking up a 93 Ex coupe, they have said that any parts i want are mine for dirt cheep. so should i A) get the head, ecu and tranny ect, and do a minime and 5spd swap, or should i just fork out the cash and buy a D15B w/ 5spd swap. i know the D15B would be cheeper, but i may be able to get the tranny and minime for like $200 for the whole thing.

D15B7,

and Dustin the reason behind not swapping the whole thing, is cause we don't know how it runs right now, an my engine runs fine.

I guess my question was irrelevant, as I would take the whole thing to have a spare block.
