Engine finally dead

There's no fixing it I need a new engine and it came at a time where I have no money. I need advise and help finding an engine that will work. I don't want to go stock k20a3 but if I have to I will.in a previous thread I was looking for an engine with low end.now I know that the k24 is what I'm looking for but which one. I know it won't bolt on to my auto tranny. My budget is 2000 dollars 1000 is going to my mechanic. Will the k24z1 provide low end torque and bolt into my car with a manual tranny will it work with an automatic and do I need sop to for any of these because if I do that will be out of budget thanks

I know the question that has been asked 15million times. I can find this knowledge by googling it, however i just need someone to talk to me about this so i can understand it. If i buy a k24z1 with a manual transmission can i just drop it in using the bar from the other car that without it makes the engine higher. Would it be a direct bolt in swap.
Would i be able to plug a k24z1 into my auto transmission with a kpro? what do i need to buy to make this work. if i buy an engine with a different computer than what came with my rsx would my passanger compartment electronics still work like airbags? radio? gauges?

Actually I believe the k24 will bolt up to the auto tranny no problem. From what I've read you will need one mount adapter and to extend a couple sensor wires. You will also need to get the kpro to auto ecu harness from Joel and a regular PRB type s ecu. Also you may need to ditch your front sway bars to clear the header or get a different kind (not sure which one). Also type s primary o2 sensor

http://forums.clubrsx.com/showthread.php?t=670063 For kpro in auto info



So 1300 for engine, 100 for the o2 sensor, 1-1600k for the ecu,kpro and adapter harness plus some change for the mount adapter.

Then just load up the k24 base map and go for a tune for some extra power. Cauqazn did this (but supercharged) and some others.

Also this applies to 02-04 only as far as I know.

Anyone who knows better feel free to chime in I've only casually researched this for myself

Thanks for the reply, but that would have been over budget. I ended up getting a 06 k20a3 with a 5 speed manual. the engine has 60 miles on it and the tranny has none. basically new. Finally I got a titanium exhaust with built in cut outs. Im saving up for a turbo now. The engine is on its way.
