Between $1,500 and $15,000, depending on which parts you buy.

If you want cheap and easy, go b series bro. If budget isn't an issue then of course k series. I have a GSR swap in mine and I just picked up a built head that the guy I got it from claims he made 230whp on a stock bottom b20. Paid $1400 for the car, with the GSR already in it and $1200 for the head. Another $2500~ for bottom end, turbo kit (yes, an ebay kit) and s300 and tune and I'll be having a lot of fun with only about $5-6k all said and done with doing everything but the tune on my own. I don't plan to sleeve or bore it since the block looks great and the cylinders are still all dead on 81mm around. Yes, I know it's risky but I feel like getting it tuned for 400whp won't be too risky.

Go b20 vtec and it'll be much cheaper than a GSR. You'll want to find a GSR head (I have a stock one for sale now &#128521 but hmotors has one coming in on friday if you want to call them up, too.

I'm still a rookie when it comes to this stuff though, so if anybody has better info than this feel free to correct me.
