Default what is the best engine swap for my 93 honda del sol?

I have a 93 honda del sol with a d16z6 engine in it. It works pretty well, however i want more power on my car. I want to swap the engine but i just dont know what is the best engine for my car. i was told i should go with a b18 engine but im not completely sure yet. Any advices? Thanks...

The b18 swap would be a good swap. Engine code b18c3 would be your best choice. It produces 178bhp and revs to over 8000rpm. If you are into tuning and know some mechanics. B18 shortblock with a b16 vtec head would be the best. B16 revs fast and b18 gives you a little more displacement. You get the best of both worlds. Light car and quick engine and you'll be smoking cars. Unless u have deep pockets... then go with the k20. ;-)

No such thing exist as "best engine" it is ALL about money and how much you have to spend, a B18 is not worth the money, it is very underpowered and for the mods not worth, you should go with the H or even better with the K series!

You can use a car performance simulator[1] to virtually swap any engine on your Honda and see how it would perform with it, then decide if worth or not!
