Default Which Engne would be best to put in my GSR?

I have a 1997 Acura GSR

Here are some of the engines I feel comfortable to swap:

H22 Type-S






I also heard of a H2B but I think that's a H22 with a B series tranny

What I'm asking is which engine is worth the cash and which one won't need much work has to be done. Because I don't want to spend 10 grand just to get 10 more HP.

H2b Nah just build you a ls vtec or b20 vtec motor with some p30 pistons just do some research and you can get up to 200-250hp on pump gas

I gotta k24 motor with a k20 head put it my Integra was not a cake walk most wiring I've done ever wish I never did it myself but I did and shes pretty sweet but k-series motors are over-rated.If you want to keep it simple just get some bolt-ons and tune,tune,tune can't say that enough

well, im not a fan of the H22, personal preference,

K-series are expensive as a hell, so if the 10g mark scares you stay away from K-series.

and J-Series is V6, not sure of the cost, but im sure its prolly expensive to swap a V6.

i would stick with B-series, personally the B18C1 like what comes in the integra gs-r.

if you have the bucks to spend tho K-series motors are very nice although some people would call them overrated.

well, the MOST hp difference you will get out of any of these engines is going to be 20-30 wheel hp. You can upgrade your internals, get a quality turbo kit with a GT30R turbo, a AEM EMS, and get it tuned for under $10,000 and have 400-500 WHEEL hp.
