Default Swap install direct?

Well, based on what I would be looking at to have someone install a swap for me in labour costs (1000 and up $$) I have decided I will do the swap myself (or at least get it in there myself, lol) I think I have decided to go with the b20 swap and gs transmission. Is a b20 crv motor a direct swap on a 94 eg hatch? Or would I be better off just swapping a b16 into the car because its my first swap? Basically will the b20 swap in like a b16 or b18? Or is it a bit more complicated like an h22 swap? Btw I will be documenting with pictures when I start the swap and posting them on hcf, should be fun. And I am swapping in early april!

I think with a gs transmission it'll be a drop-in swap, but I'm honestly not sure... I checked Honda-Tech's list of swap pros/cons, and it just said the b20 tranny won't fit.

ya I couldn't find much info on this swap either, I guess it is one the less done swaps of the bunch. I might just swap in a b16a gen2 or a d15b sohc for the ease and practicallity as this is not going to be a racer or anything, I just want a bit more pep. Plus I like doing anything mechanical and it will be a fun project to do.
