Default what engine to boost?

Ok, I have a 95 si and I wanna do an engine swap and boost it. I don't have a lot of money so I don't have a lot of options. What would be better to boost, a non vtec b18ls motor, or a jdm d15b vtec? I know vtec engines are higher compression, so is it bad to boost em? how many pounds of boost could i run on those motors? Which one would give me more preformance? holla back!

I would do the b18. Even though a vtec would be better I would do the b18 because of its displacement

B18B (that's assuming the LS and the D15B are your only options...)
