Default Advice on finding an engine?

Considering buying an engine for a Honda 92 Civic DX Hatchback. I've
done some searching through the JDM market online, and I'm only
slightly confused
Living in Northern Canada so the pickings are slim and shipping is
high! Just looking for something in the 400-700 dollar range, and
hopefully reliable.
Anything I should watch out for? Sites you'd reccomend? Things to be
sure to get in purchasing an engine? Any advice would be great, I'm
terribely new to all this.
Thank you.

The JDM engines are not necessarily guaranteed to be straight
bolt-on-drop-ins. Blocks for other markets can have edditional holes that
need to be plugged (mechanical fuel pump aperture, for instance), bracket
holes in the wrong place your your market, that sort of thing. Be prepared
to do some fabrication.

yeah, but a 92 d15b2 is a d15b2 is a d15b2... that should be plug and
play. the interesting stuff comes from d15b2 -> h23, etc.

That's the problem. Sometimes it isn't. The lump bolts in place, but try to
install all things that attach to it. Some blocks are fine, some are not.

I have a D15B7 engine in my honda now, 'theoretically' what engines
could I put in without fabricating anything. That would fit just right.
