well sadly you drive a honda so theres no engine with a good amount of pull. since no real torque.
b18's run like 3500
b16's run 2500 or so

if you want you could try to put a h22a in it. 2500 on that too.

this is just for the engine and parts alone not the install of it.

id say a b18c type r. integra engine.

I say drop a d16z6 and turbo the b****.
But if you want b series and still keep a budget then go for an b18b. Integra ls swap. You won't have vtec but you'll have the power and torque for the price.

Then later when you get more into it and learn more then you can either swap a b series head to make an ls/vtec, drop a turbo in or both.

Lots of things you can do once you have that motor in.
