well its a B18A1 if you live in the USA, if your looking to replace with stock this is the way to go.

Honda Engines have a letter before the engine code "B"18 that is the series of the engine.

You can put most B series motors in there, you can upgrade to the very expensive and new K series motors or even put a H series (H22 prelude motor if you decide to),

options are up to you, but me personally i would just keep it the same.

The acura integra rs was the base model integra, with the B18A1 engine, producing 130bhp (upped to 140bhp in 1993). if you simply want to replace a standard engine then thats the engine you need (providing you live in the states, the engines varied according to country).

if you are doing it for performance reasons then i would recommend sticking to the B-series family, as there they are great engines and unless you want to go K-series (2002+ type-r engines) there isn't really any reason to leave the B18-series, the H-series are also performance oriantated engines, found in prelude SiR's, but not as capable/reliable as the B-series.

The best teggy engine you can go for is the JDM B18C, from the DC2 honda integra type-r, 195bhp, S80 LSD gearbox and 9000+ rpm limit. others include B18B, B18B1, B18C1 and the B18C5.

i would say try and pick up a stock JDM DC2 integra-R though, as it will be cheaper and you will get the improved chassis and handling of the type-r model (which is worth having!) not to mention the championship white paint and JDM facelift front (will be 1998 ish though)
