new engine?

thinking about getting a new engine...mine is giving me alot of problems looking to get something affordable
-b16 is out of the question b/c i need one ASAP
would a ZC fit in an 00ek? i heard its a pretty sh*ty engine but it would be a nice project
or should i just pick up a y8 or a d15b

any suggestions?

ZCs are pretty much obsolete. To find one with low mileage or overall good condition is very difficult and not advisable.
