WHAT swap would you do out of the selections I give here... Look...there are no other choices but these..and suppose money is not an issue!

A. SR20DE-T swap....(nissan turbo motor from the silvia etc..)

B. Volkswagen 1.8T swap....

C. Toyota 4 cyl from a GTS Celica

D. B-18 or K-20 from Honda...(you know what models)

Now to even out you decision...imagine the last 2 motors are turboed from the factory and all have 200whp...

ALSO! Take in mind the level of aftermarket support available and what you know of these motors running in your area with the basics...bolton's etc.

This is a real deal poll please no long winded remarks on how you would do something else...or this wouldn't work etc..OK!??

Um... Stupid question: What would you be swapping the motor into? Assuming you're talking about the Focus, I'd choose "E. Other" and go with either a CSVT V6 (or a twin turbo'd non-SVT Cougar/Contour V6) or, if I wanted to get a bit more exotic, a Escort Cosworth engine (and possibly drivetrain) swap.

If you want to get pointlessly exotic why stop with the 4 cylinder motors you've listed? Why not pick up a turbo 4-cylinder motor out of an older Esprit or something comprably exotic?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yup.. In fact, why not shoe horn a V8 into the engine bay? I mean, if you have enough cash, you can V8 just about any car in the world.

A. but how would you get the wiring harness to work??

But if it was me, I'd trade the whole car in for a Celica GT-S
