i dont really want to do a swap... yet think more in the line of a turbo if anything, yes i know a k20 w/ i/h/e would be close and if turbod would own all. but... just not really wanting to do that... rather would put a turbo on my 04, i plan on selling my car next summer so thats why i dont want to do a swap

Vantage should not be trusted
id just turbo ur 04, it will make enough power for 99% of people, and if u need more u can always build it up and go high boost. K20 is nice, but it gets more expensive, unless u want ridiculous power. IMO go turbo d17

K20 Swap

I say since you have the money do a k20 swap. In fact, you should just buy mine. It's a K20A3 w. 6 speed tranny. 2000 firm Complete swap except for wire harness.
