Default engine swap

so heres the thing i bought an 02 ex about a month ago it already has a weapon r cool air intake, spoon headers and aem pulleys. i want to swap my current motor out for one of these.


as you can tell im far from decided. can these motors even be swapped into my car? if so wich ones? (indicate by last 5 numbers on url) and i also want some opinions on which one i should. i have a few more questions. the first one i probobly already know is a no but can i use my intake and pulleys with these? the next question is when shopping for parts for these motors what kind of car should i shop under. the last question is, im definately not capable of doing this swap myself, so where could i go to get this done. (note that i live in gary indiana where there are no garages) thnx guys i hope to get some good opinions on what to do.

I vote either the first one or the last one if you have the money, the k will be a hell of a lot more xpensive to install though (30014 or 30011)

and if you do the last one, make it a project thread and take as many pictures as humanly possible since I am going to be doing the same swap later on and would like a detailed how to guide

its not as easy as just picking a motor. First off, you need to figure out what your plans are, whether you boost it or leave it NA. Then you need to do your research on the engines and find out what engines respond well with what. Then you need to figure out a budget and research what you need to do the swap right.
