depends on what you wanted to doif you wanna go all motor then yeah a b18c5 would be nice, however good f-ing luck finding oneyou can do a k20 swap but dont get the k20a3 because thats worst than the gsr motorbut in terms of going force induction the k20 can handle it, gsr can handle it, however the b20 with a vtec head can really handle it since it has more torque, and so can the ls/vtec with more torque and vtec. if you wanna go SC then perhaps a h22a they really benefit from this cuz the liters are much more higher.but since you probably asked this on yahoo answers i'm guessing you're a teen and you're gonna have to ask mommy and daddy to buy you a new motor so i'm not gonna take you seriously. engine swaps ARE very expensive not only just to buy it but to install it. do some more research as my suggestions are viable. start from there

the best is the k20 but the gsr is the most common and practical..and you could turbo it but not much with out building the stock boost is ok...they choose the gsr over the type r becuase the gsr has more room for after market build up and easier plus cheaper to get...

If you want a turbo on that engine your going to put in I suggest you swap in a GSR B18C1. Because the pistons on the GSR motor are flat the engine makes it more ideal for a bolt on turbo. But If it was me I would go with a Type R engine with a supercharger kit.

get a GSR engine and use the left over money to build up your engine.edit: nevermind sounds like you've got g's to throw down on a car. Give me half and help a brotha out.
