Default motor swap in my HX

hi, i have 4000 dollars to spend ona motor swap for my 98 Civic HX. lets face it the SOHC VTEC-E isnt cuttin it ne more. i am looking a K24 from an accord cus of the torque they have. but i have heard that a GSR B18C1 is a great choice as well. im looking to cut my e.t. down a little bit. right now i am running a 16.2. which motor will be better for the track? any help would be great, thanks. also, i dont mind converting from OBD II to OBD I with an AEM ECU converter. thanks for ne help. -John

The k24 would be the better engine but it cost way too much to swap it in that in my opinion is not worth the trouble. Therefore, I recommend getting the GSR.
