Depends on how deep your pockets are and how far you want to go with it. Like most forums, if you search you can find some builds to help you out.

Better yet, if you have been a member of any forum you should know that typically there is a search function somewhere on the user interface which you can plug in "D16z6 200 hp" or something along those lines.

Check what Stratton inputted on the post above for your search. It is probably a good starting point for you. From what I have searched, I have found if you are looking into a NA build you could crank out around 140 to 160whp for the price of a b16 swap especially if you are resourceful in finding parts and making deals.

Even if you do search, you should be realistic with yourself and decide how much you want to put into the build. Do you want to go NA or Forced Induction. Other things that might be more important to start off with thought would be Braking and Suspension before adding any power modifiers for your car. It is far more important to stop safely and be able to lay power to the ground versus waving your Internet Bench Racing around just because you hit a certain HP.

Look up builthatch's post Building a Powerful NA d16 z6/y8. He's got tons of useful info in that post.

Boost, this is the easiest, with a maintained or rebuilt motor you can push 200 all day with a good tune.

NA, you need a beefy bottom end, cam, valves, retainers, springs, and a sweet tune.

One can be had for under $2000, one cannot. Dont cheap out either or you will find yourself looking for a new motor. TheToaster has a 165ish NA, AutoXcivic had some sweet ideas getting to around the same at one point. If your crafty either option can be had.

Do some research and come back with a better question.
