Engine Swap + Turbo

OK so I have a 1999 Honda prelude base coupe 5seed. I've decided I an going to an engine swap on it my friends are going to help me I also want to boost it. So I have a few questions, for the swap should I do another h22 or a k20? Does anyone know any place I should start looking for engines? I'm trying to find one that's boost ready but if not that's OK. What price range should I try to stay in when looking to buy an engine. Does anyone have any advice or tips as far as the engine swap goes or the turbo install? Recommend any certain parts or brands to use?

Please no rude comments, I'm just asking for some opinions from people who share the same tastes in cars that I do. I appreciate all comments thanks.

Re: Engine Swap + Turbo

Why an engine swap?

What's wrong with your current engine?

What are you going to tune with?

What is your emissions/inspection testing like?

What's your budget?

Have you searched any of this?
