I agree, just get a low mileage JDM long block. Mine cost about 1200 as a reference. It did happen to turn out to be an ej208/206, which happens to have the added bonus of sodium filled valves and forged aluminum pistons from what I've researched so you might get lucky enough to find one of those. Thing is the JDM engines have a different compression ratio 9:1 jdm vs 8:1 usdm so you might need a tune. Also the JDM 2 liter engines just feel better on the lower end taking off from a stop and run more smoothly, but that could be related to the compression difference.
