    There's no such thing as a good, cheap engine swap. If you want a better engine that's in good shape, then you need to spend some money on it. What's your budget?

    get a b18c or b16a just find one that is in your obd. you might spend about 3000 for a complete swap if doing a b18c and around 2500 for a b16a(thats what i spent) if possible get lsd to the tranny and go through www.hmotorsonline.com very good site and won't regret it.
    obd1 b16a would require 95 del sol parts if doing mechanical and electrical. also integra shift linkage would be required for this. get through website when getting engine if possible. delear sales this at around $180
