whatever you can fit.

EDIT: The Prelude H22 is the most powerful motor that i am aware of that can be swapped in, a friend of mine did it and said it was a rocket.

If you mean an engine swap first you would have to measure the engine block and then look up cars that have engines that meet those specifications then you install the engine and you may have to re-map the engine. You can also add performance parts and tune the engine and other parts of the vehicle to increase the mph on the car.

The k20 is the best swap you can perform, but depending on what year your civic is there is a lot of work that goes into the swap, and the motor and trans itself will set you back about 5k. Give a little more info on the year or generation of your civic and the model. It would be more helpful for the people answering to give you specifics.

@ andrey... the k20 is the best motor to supercharge or turbo because of it's bigger intake and exhaust valves look it up.... and any swap except a mini me, b16 or b18 is going to require a lot of work. But the question was what would be the best...

k20 sucks and so does the h22. h22 requires ALOT cutting, soldering, and welding. k20 has too much compression ratio 4 any engine work such as NOS, supercharger, or turbo.

The K20A if at all possible. The same engine used in the Civic Type R.
