    well, it really comes down to what do you want out of the car.

    500 easy just in parts for a auto-manual swap. labor- look about the same... so that leaves you 2500-3500 for a motor. b16a2 or b18c1 would be my opinion, unless later down the line you are thinking turbo, then b18b1

    again, post what you want to get out of the car.
