I would say sr since there is more aftermarket parts out there and the parts are cheaper compared to others. only thing I don't like about the sr is how it sounds with an exhaust.

i had an rb, it was fun but i wanted more. the ka is fine for basic stuff i feel but i cannot wait to rock an ls motor (not honda). not much heavier than a ka and WAY more output than any other swap stock for stock. parts are crazy easy to find

Meh, I voted SR. I like SR's, but I like RB's as well, I'd rock a VQ or VH too.

True... it's looking like the swap will be about $7500 all said and done

however SR swaps "done right" aren't much cheaper... people tend to neglect all of the little BS that ads up.

I'm gonna say KA because I can buy just about every part at one of the local parts stores. And the aftermarket support for boosting one is getting a lot larger.
Also, it's(KA) easy to get in and out of the car with no wiring issues. Granted, a little DIY and customization always perks my interest with the other motors. But, I do have love for anything that someone builds as long as it has time, sweat, and honest effort put into it.
And something about 28psi on a 'truck' motor tickles my fancy.

I think we all know I voted KA.
Stout little engine that can make a fully built monster with crazy power for less than it costs to do most swaps - and anything you want is stocked at autozone or at the junkyard instead of in a rising sun container
