Default D16y5 OR D16y8: which is better?

okay, so I'm pretty much a noob. I just have a simple question:

Which is the better engine? In respects to speed, power, mpg, hp, etc...

ps: on a 98 honda civic ex.

the y8 is the stock ex motor, and it is the better of the 2. the y5 is for mpg, not power.
