it's cheaper to get a Turbo & build the internals. You can get 300+ hp doing this, but if this isnt enough for you, then there's always the 3SGTE engine

the 3s-gte is a nice canadiate..

If I were doing the swap, I'd go for the BEAMS 3S-GE it's a naturally aspired motor. 200-210 hp stock motor... with individual throttle bodies and proper tuning, you could get 240 to the wheels...
