    Ok guys, i have done hours and hours, days and days, weeks and weeks of research on a swap for my 2000 civic Ex coupe and i've concluded that the k20a2 (from the type-s) would be my dream swap, BUT it's a big headache and only for the ppl w/ never ending pocketbooks! So i've looked into the b18 gsr n h22 series lately(for sure going to go turbo in future, hence looking at the low compression motors)... and for a budget of around $4,500, guys on opinion and or experience what would ya'll go with? I've heard almost equal from both sides... Honestly... which one would be the best set up for my car?

    B-series would be the easiest espsecially if its your first swap.
