I can help, I recently swapped a b series into my 98 EX. I know these EK's inside out.

I would recommend getting a B18B1 for a motor if your looking to boost. They're non vtec, and don't make as much power as a lot of the other b series motors, but they're cheap and easy to find parts for at junkyards. And if you plan on doing any tuning or engine management, try to find a 94-95 motor, they're OBD1, so most tuning systems are compatible with them.
