If bigger is better, the next choice is the b18c1 found in Integra GSRs. With the b18c1 you get dohc vtec but with 1.8 liters of displacement and 180hp. Anything you can do to the b16 you can do with the b18c1, but you will make more power. One perceived drawback is its shorter stroke. Some people worry that it is not as friendly to higher revs. In most situations this should not be a concern. the other drawback is that it costs significantly more than the b16.Best of all b-series motors is the b18c5 found in the Integra Type R. With nearly 200hp out the box it is the most potent b-series motor to swap into your Civic. Cost is the biggest prohibition. Also, to keep costs down, many people will just make another b-series motor stronger. This is a good option, but the Type R is the most complete bolt in swap.B-series motors are not your only option for high powered swaps Back in the day the big boy of Honda swaps was the h22 found in Honda Preludes At 22 liters it is one of the bigger motors you can swap into your Civic and it is also DOHC VTEC Out of the box you will make more power and much more torque than you would with a b-series In the longer run you might find your self limited because the aftermarket is not developed Also it is not an easy swap Nothing about it was meant to be in a Civic Mounts, axels, and custom fabrication is involved Not for someone scared of a lot of work If you are up for the challenge though, these can be very rewarding motors.
