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.

For some reason it wouldn't let me comment and said the post was locked so im reposting it

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?

Re: Engine Swap + Turbo

So...turbo huh, as far as swapping to a k20, why not just sleeve the h22?
might be cheaper than buying another engine. In my area there is a shop that would sleeve for like $1000 bucks. all you gotta do is provide the sleeves. Plus you're going to take the engine out anyway. Darton or Eagle are the ones i've heard of the most.

I am still waiting to turbo but i've been doing alot of reading and IMO sleeving the engine would protect it and possibly...higher PSI.

Re: Engine Swap + Turbo

also, in addition, i'm sure you know that there is a thread on here marked turbo 101. You may already have basic knowledge but i found it usefull reading material.

Re: Engine Swap + Turbo

I've heard f22s were good for boosting which is what I assumed your base model 5th gen is, plus if not done right boosting will screw your car up majorly, too much boost and your lobbing pistons out the bonnet!

It was locked for a REASON!

If you try making another thread..... let's just say, you've been warned. Twice.

I think he meant to give the OP a sense of deja vu, since he reposted the same topic.
