Default What engine swap should I do for my 1994 Honda Civic.?

So I just Recently bought a 1994 Civic Ex Coupe and it has the Stock D16Z6 engine and I want to swap it out. What engine would be the best for my car? I was thinking of Putting a B20 block with a B16 Head but I'm not sure or a H22 but I heard that they are not really Reliable. What do you Recommend?

take the original engine out and have it performance built by a quality engine rebuilder that specializes in imports. be willing to drop $15,000 tho

H22 is pretty much the most reliable engine Honda has made. comes wit FRM cylinder liners. It will go forever with regular oil changes and appropriate services. whoever told you that an H22 is unreliable is a complete moron, I have seen TONS of then with over 200K on them

H22 aren't very rev happy... B20's have thin cylinder walls just do a simple ls/vetc build...
