What are your goals for the car? You just looking for something quick and more fun to drive or are you planning on any track time with the car. I take it your car is a 4 door?

Best bet for the money IMO would be a H22A swap if a shop is going to do the swap for you. If you plan on doing it a B18C1 GSR swap is a good place to start
