which K engine swap is easist for my FIT?

Very intrigued by this idea...I had actually considered moving to a Volkswagen Golf...as I like the low end power that it has compared to my fit. I realize it's not night and day...but the low end pull on my FIT is really a sticking point for me.

If I could do an engine swap...I would be very interested. Which K engine variant is easiest to swap in? I see accord engines, Civic SI engines, RSX engines...which one should I target as the easiest candidate for a swap?

Also, would anyone think that a turbo kit would be easier and or cheaper to do?

I think wee need a parts list to go with this too?
I know Hasport CR-Z mounts are used.
Do you stay with fly by wire?
What axles are used?
What exhaust manifold is used?
I'm sure K-pro or Tuner for ECU
Do we need an adapter harness?
Do we use stock radiator?
We need a good DIY pic heavy thread hear. lol!

Just buy a Golf.

Unless you have $10,000 sitting around you'd like to throw away on a <10k car.r
