If you dont want to swap out the block, you're not going to be making much power with that amount of money. You have the perfect opportunity to have a built bottom end with that money.

well, i was looking and the k24 has some badass torque, but the hp is way low. is the bottom end just changing the torque? cuz i really dont feel like having 150-160hp. yea, theres a 235hp, but thats gonna run out the ass along with getting it installed.

Just do the swap yourself & save a boatload of cash. K24A4's can be had for about $600 all day.

As far as I know it doesn but there is some custom work that needs to be done like installing a K20A2 oilpump. You don't have to have an engine lift to do a swap. The motor can be dropped out the bottom still bolted to the subframe.
