Default what motor swap should i go with?

Details: have a 91 honda crx si, not running presently, im fixin to do a full swap and i cant decide what swap to go with?? any suggestions?? what im looking at right now is doing a 2jz swap, cuz my friend has an 91 civic hatch w/ a 2jz swap so i know itll work but any suggestions?? just to clarify i am going to do the swap but this car isnt even driveable at all this is going to be, kinda like tim allens hot rod off home improvement, i dont plan on finishing let alone driving this car within at least the next 10-20 yrs so if got plenty of time to do whatever, my other intrest was a b20 swap and with the b20 drivetrain and trans i could make this car 4wd turbo and thats what im going for, but should i make this car 4wd or rwd, like i said this car is going to be sitting for years so what do you think 10 points for a bada** idea!! sorry but the other thing i was considering was was converting this to ef8 rhd, does anyone know about this or has done it and can give me any advice or anything?

I wouldn't put a Toyota motor in your Honda. If i put a b20 in it i would just keep it fwd.

just go with a the b20 because you can do a head swap later on down the road for more power if you want it and get a better transmission that has closer gears that the standard b20 tranny. A gains of a awd civic isn't worth the time and fabrication involved. Instead just get a good set of coilovers and a ITR rear sway bar, it will handle great with that combination.
