    LS would be a good daily driver,find one with low mileage if you can,clean straight forward and affordable on a budget,lots of fun too.

    B18C1 (GS-R) would be my choice for a reliable but fun, daily-driven Civic...

    Those are OBD2 only and needs adjustments or replacement of dizzy to OBD1, OBD1 Alternator, OBD1 injectors (prelude DOHC VTEC are same size) and use your D16Z6 engine harness

    PLus these swaps are at least $1200 more then a B18C1

    Close to $4000, then the parts to refresh the engine, then the mounts to put it into the car (or use OEM ones, might still have to spend some cash), then any other cash you need to spend to troubleshoot anything that might have gone wrong during the install.

    Or you could just go to Hmotorsonline.com as a few of us have already linked and look through their pricing. They have just about every engine you could think to drop into a Civic.
