yes- ef, ej, eg, ek......etc...modding? do you want street legal or track only? for street legal use, a simple engine swap with add on parts is good enough.for track you can rebuild the whole block with racing parts. rods, pistons, bearings, sleeves, and balancing. port and polish the head, new valves, rockers, springs/housing, cams, etc. pull out all stock water pumps, fuel pumps, get higher rpm electric pumps, new radiator, new fan, fuel cell, big braking system, ignition system, individual throttle bodies, roll cage....if you're gonna do something, don't half asss it or you'll always be under the hood of the car and will never be satisfied. go simple or all out.

Yes it's okay as long as the engine isn't stolen then you should be fine. However you need to get it REF by the state so the swap is legal. If not you'll get a ticket if the cop asks to look under your hood. Here are some mods to boost performance:Cold Air intake (AEM carb legal) Exhaust system( GReedy)Dc headersdenso iridium spark plugssupercharger
