    you won't be able to do a swap and boost for less than $1700 unless you get a really good deal on the swap and turbo kit.

    if i was you, i would get a b18b (ls swap) and put i/h/e on it. it would be in your budget, stay reliable and give you good power for daily driving.

    it would be hard to find a legit gsr for $1700. b16's come around rarely for that much. but then you have to pay for all your fluids and any other little bits and pieces that usually add about $200 to the swap.

    i would just go with the ls swap. but that's just me

    depends on how much power you want. if it is just daily driver on a budget, you could do the ls swap and get a gsr head later for $600. ls on boost would give you a lot more power but it would also cost a lot more.

    +1 on that
    you have to start with a plan (1) a budget (2) a reasonable hp goal
