    well, with that kind of hp goals and no turbo, your gona have to build the shit out of any motor you swap in there other than a k series, but if you swap to go b series it could be had with a supercharger or built out the ass. or for around 10 grand drop in a k series with k pro and your done.

    yeah i have a project similar to yours. a word of advice would to research your build. things like cylinder sleeves, custom pistons with skirt coatings, double oil er wrist pins, high performance connecting rods, head work, performance head bolts, fuel system set ups, throttle bodies, possibly balance shaft removal, compression ratios, and more will have to be researched. do you have a budjet for this build? 250 hp cannot be done easily without a budget of like 7 grand minimum

    Answer this first: what is your budget? (i.e. how much money do you have to spend on this?)

    Answer that question, and then we will be able to tell you if your goals are even possible or not...

    Well there is a big difference between swapping a B-series vs a K-series, I suggested K-series b/c you never gave a budget, only an NA Hp goal.

    whats you biggest concern? Money? 200-250whp? Turbo or NA?
