either way turbo or non turbo i would go with teh b18c. i had an h22 in my crx(del sol hatchback) and it ran sweet turbo it was dropping low to mid 10s. i dont know if you want to go all out like that. but its all in how much you have to spend and what you are really trying to achieve in it. you can drop anything into it because it is a civic. the itr (b18c5) would be the over all best but its gonna be hell finding one in a good condition and at a good price. other then that you got yoru h series, h22a1, h23a, h22a2, you got your f series, f20b(like h22 but alot better if tuned) f20a, f22, then your b series the b18's, b16a from a gsr, its all in what you got for money and how much go power you want in your personally because i had the h22 in my car before i would try the f20b from the european accord sir. it is an h22 with longer connecting rods giveing alittle less hp stock but when tuned it should smoke an h22 easy. you could also go with the all new famous swap. the k20 or k24 or the frankenstein of them all the k20 block with k24 head. that is also a nice combination of block and head. but once again what you got to spend and how fast you want to go.

If you are going to turbo later do a b18b swap the block can handle MORE BOOST on the stock block. The b18c and b16a do have more HP. The stock blocks are crappy. Throw in the whole b18b engine or just do the b18b block with a b18c or b16a head (LS/VTEC swap) Its a little more difficult than just putting the b18b engine in though. DONT do the b18c5! Its a great engine but the compression is to high. You will have to do the internals.
