This is a basic piss in the wind post. I want to do an engine swap on my 86 base model 2.5 5 speed.

I would love to find a torquey 4 banger that can handle moderate mid range boost (T3)

I have not started anything on the potential build, and it is my daily driver. I was wondering is anyone knew of any good engines that are 'plug and play' with minimal fabrication but that also might leave space for a good turbo build.

I don't want to spin the tires every day, and Id like to hover in the high 20s low 30s for mpgs. Its a lot to ask, so Im just seeing if anyone know of any engines capable of this.

Thank you!

Ideal power range after a full build is 220 bhp, though I will probably have to step to a v6 for that.

It isn't exactly "Plug and play" but I know the GM Ecotec line has been swapped in. They were often turboed stock. Low displacement, and hopefully decent MPG

Others have swapped in the Quad 4 motor. I am aware they are often built to be really high horsepower. I don't know where the mileage numbers would come in. I've also read it is not an "easy" swap either.

Depends what you mean by plug and play.

Cheers!
