I've done a couple of both, and trust me, the 13B-RE is a much easier swap. Not quite as powerful as the REW, but its a much easier swap. You're going to have to use different motor mounts, there are many custom made ones available online from various retailers.

13bt / 13b re will make just as much power if you put some cash in
people make more HP with the rew (FD) basically because they put more cash in

i would say 13bt is the best for money, reliability, and ease of swap (no swap required). Unless your goal is over 400 HP. Then you'll probably need to swap in a 13b-rew or mayhaps 20b.

a properly built, modded and tuned engine regardless if it is a 13BRE, 13BREW or a 13BT.

The Cosmo 13B-RE is a much easier engine to install at this point in time.
There are lots of pre-fabbed engine adapters that make this engine drop-in.

The FD3S 13B-REW is a little more involved to get it to fit.
