Default 1997 Honda Accord Engine swap

My name is Blake Stressman and i have 1997 Honda Accord LX, with a 2.2L non-vtec, and i wanted to do a engine swap, but i can't decide which engine would be the best engine to build up. I was trying to pick from either the f20B sir-t or the h22a. Which one can handle more power and which one has more parts i can buy for it, since i want to turbo charge it and i want to take it to the drags.

H22a in your case pretty much a drop in

H22/3a in stock form cannot handle a lot of boost (already high compression) if you want TURBO, F22B motor that is already in there and slap in a turbo kit

h22 and f20b are both drop right in, neither one however is very good for turbos without forged internals.

The H22 needs to be sleved to turbo. If you want NA, slap the H23 head on your F22. For turbo, you can keep the F22 as is or throw the H22 head on it.

It is a manual and i have never done a turbo kit before, what kind of engine internals need to be done to handle the turbo.
