Looking at potential K swap and would appreciate some feedback in looking for a reliable option with more HP along with some bang for the buck, located in SoCal, thanks in advance.

In addition you can google your question with lotustalk on the end and it should bring up some of the builds on here. There's some in For Sale with links to builds as well.

For what purpose? Track or tooling around?

Bang for buck would lead to the 2ZZ with a supercharger. Then decide if you need/want intercooling,

I have BOE 300 (no intercooler) and love it.

Engine swaps from scratch, way more expensive.

Just be aware that a stock replacement will cost you $800, and a kswap will start at 10k. So it's not at all apples to apples.

I did a kswap with full standalone but its a race car now and I did it so I could be NA.

You're in SoCal, so I wouldn't advise a K swap, unless it will be track only.

You haven't given any meaningful data to base an opinion on. What kind of car? Intended use? Budget?
