Lightbulb D16y8 build or buy a new motor for boost?

I have a 97 civic ex with a y8 in it. 200k miles on it. I was looking into boosting small with vitara pistons and no notch speed factory rods. Should I build the motor and clean it good? Or should I just buy a new one and build that one? And what should I go with on the tuning aspect and how much power can that transmission hold? My goal is 220-250hp to have a fun reliable car. Lol sorry if I sound new to this. But thanks in advance !
