    You will be much better off with a B series in that chassis. We have a post in the FAQ that covers this question.

    putting a K20 in your EG is probably gonna cost you a tad bit over $7500-8000.
    You can probably pick up a complete K20A3 changeover for about $4500 if you look hard enough and the rest of it will be for labor. There is a lot of custom work that needs to be done to get it to work right. It's totally not worth it.
    On the other hand you have a B-series motor with a shit load of aftermarket backing. there isn't a single part on there that you can't replace.

    here's how i rank it according to cost and ease:
    B-series > H-series > K-series

    Like most say, stick with the motor that "should" have went into your ride. Yes it can be done but it would cost much bucks.
