Default Motor swap Q's

Ive been looking at JDMenginedepot.com for new motors and what not, because this stock engine is gutless. i want DOHC Vtec. i have a few candidates:
B18(GSR)
F20(S2000) (front or rear wheel drive, unsure)
K20(new Civic)
H22(5th gen 'Lude)

I like HP, but i like high RPMs too. When i had my 95 Civic i wanted to put a B16 in it like the Si but i never had the chance so this car will have a DOHC Vtec but i dont know what will fit in this CB7 with little to no custom fabrication.

H22 is your only choice for little to no custom fabrication and is cheap.

K series would require a decent bit of custom fab and is also a very expensive motor to work with.

F series would require a whole ton of custom fabrication and is also very expensive.

B series would require some custom fab and wouldnt make enough torque to make it worth it.

H22 is the answer.

I figured it would be the easiest to do H22. thats why i looked up H22's on different sites, they want 3999.99 at jdmenginedepot.com (assuming i need ecu and trans etc.) My buddy is putting a F20B and he can use his F22A stuff to fit it. i didnt want to copy him.

no way would I pay $4k. You could buy a Prelude for $5k - $7k. I would go junkyard shopping...
