    Honestly, a B18C swap would be more feasible and efficient for your goal. It's going to take less effort to get to 300whp, where as with a b18b1 you might need to open up the head to get it there comfortably. Both are obviously going to need to be turbocharged.

    Lambos and vipers? Haha have you ever driven a 300whp Civic? It is quite different than 300whp in other cars, mainly because of the weight.

    If you're on a tight budget, b18b1 and see how close you can get to 300whp. If you've got some extra cash, b18c1/gsr and call it good.
