any D series will bolt right in. If you want to swap in a B series you will need new motor mounts and axles put in.If you wanna stay with a D series you could swap in a D16y6 which is about 130hp with vtec. Thats about the fastest D seriest you can drop in.Theres a few B series choices to choose from. Look at for info.

for the amount of power gain it is not worth it. just because it is faster in car that was built with that engine does not mean any or little gain in different model.

Direct replacement would be any B-series like B16A, B16A2, B18A, B18B, B18C etc. Your car than would be faster and still ride the same because in japan EG hatches came with a B-series motor factory which was with the B16.I recommend personally to go with the B18's just because they are a bigger motor, more torque, and you get better horse power/torque results for your aftermarket upgrades than the B16's. Good Luck...

I could recommend the D15B VTEC probably the easiest & cheapest or the B16A (the SiRs of the 92-95s had this in them) so it shouldn't be too hard to install in the engine bay.Check out
