    Just get the whole thing, don't piece it together if your base is $2,500 or you will probly end up over your budget trying to get to type R.

    That's where everyone will say to go, and they have earned their good name.
    $5k-6k is right around normal for that motor in complete swap form.

    Id say just get the K20a the K20a3 is quite a bit different plus the USDM a3 ECU wont run the K20a properly the a3 only has i-vtech cam lobes on the intake cam where as the JDM K20a has them on both the biggest diffrence between the two is the compression, the cam shafts and the ECU's

    Thanks for stepping up and answering this question from four years ago buddy. I'm sure the original poster, who hasn't been to this forum in years, really appreciates it...
