What all would i need to change out? whats different? not sure if im going to do this for sure. but if i get a second car then i would most likely do it if my new car is a cheap car that is a good daily driver. i want to change it out because i would like a engine that comes stock with turbos. and i would put bigger turbos on it. Thanks.
You can find the RS engine if you search the Mexico for sale section every now and then one turns up

The easy thing to do would be to add my DIY turbo kit to your engine and I can also tune it remote and be done with it , no need in loosing the VCT as it works fine with boost , the stock engine would run a long long time at 250-260 to the wheels
