Put a 283 ci v6 engine in if you want about 200 hp and a 350 v8 if you want about 330hp

Well the new thing is a K20. Those engines have lots of new options. As well as the Kraftwerx Supercharger that Skunk2 is working on.

You can also go with the K24 if you want more torque. That'll run you about $4g's with wiring and install. Maybe a tad bit more or less.

But that K20 should be good enough. Go to a junkyard where they have new cars and try to find a totaled 06-09 civic si.

Depends what you're doing with it. If you plan to actually race the car, you have to pick the engine based on the class and type of racing, because the wrong engine could, in some series, put you into a class where you absolutely cannot compete. SCCA for example, won't allow any engine swaps in stock class or SM (street modified), but other classes will allow a B16 because a 1995 civic was available with that in japan, but a B18C or K20Z1 would still be illegal. What wiring will be necessary will depend on the engine as well.

agreed with sean...

All depends on what your doing with the car, and how much work you want to put into it.

The easiest swaps for the 5th gens are the d-series motors.(d16y6,d16y7,d16y8, you can do a mini me swap which is a d16z6 head on a d15b7 block)

Next would be the b-series (any b16, b18, or b20)

An H-series ( H22 being the most popular)

J-series ( kits made to put in accord v-6 motor are available for the 5th gens now)

Last choice would be a k-series only because they are very exspensive motors and require A LOT of work when swapped into the 5th gen. ( but they are also very quick)

Good luck and make sure you do your research before dumping your money into something.

Any b-series swap will bolt right in. All the wiring you'd need to change is the engine harness.

I say for price and power go H22, great power. I did my entire swap for around 2500 including motor and tranny. I have a 98 civic with a JDM H22A, and I'm proud to say I can keep up with a 20k+ s2000. You're gonna have to sacrifice a couple things tho, like PS and A/C /: I'm working on trying to get AC currently but PS is still a nono.
