I'll play along, but first...
How much money are you willing to throw at it? are you doing it all yourself or having a shop do it? If doing it yourself, do you have the tools? the skills? Is your car in a condition worth the engine/computer/transmission/possible suspension swap? what are you trying to get out of it? (Daily Driver/Drag/Autocross/show car)

In my experience, D series is what you put in when you already have a D series, or you're limited by costs. if you're going with a turbo I'd go with the B series.
