honestly neither. The H22 is a junk ball of an engine ESPECIALLY for a civic. The B18C5 (type-r) is WAY too overpriced for what it is. Think about it, the B18C1 is 170 hp (145-155 at the wheels) and the B18C5 is 195 hp (170 at the wheels) now here is the big kicker, the B18C5 is TWICE as expensive as the B18C1. I would recommend a B18C1 with a quality bolt on turbo kit, and for the SAME price as a B18C5 you can have around 250 WHEEL hp, 80 more than the B18C5 and have a lot more fun.

Sell the civic and buy a real car:































ie: something with a v8 or v6































then you dont have to waste tons of money trying to make 200 measly ponies from a b-series, youll be more concerned with how to put your 500 horses from that cammed LS1 to the ground!
