Lightbulb CrawFord FA20 Fully Built Swap

Hello all, I was looking into the CrawFord Fully Built FA20 ShortBlock https://crawfordperformance.com/coll...12172301434953 I wanted to hear some opinions about the block, and also what parts may be required to upgrade.
I would like to go with their 200+ Turbo kit they have as well, and I am under the impression that I may have to changout the Transmission and Clutch, I would also like to know the best setup to get as much power as possible, like Clutch Assembly, Transmission Gear Ratios, Drive Shaft, Differential, Exhaust System, etc.
If anyone has done this kind of build before or has some more knowledge on engine swaps it would be great to get some feedback, I would like to maintain a 4cyl Boxer just to keep the engine as stock as possible and without any excess engine bay remodeling.

Thank you very much, this project isn’t going to happen for a bit, but I want to get an idea of costs and how long it may take me to perform the labor, and tools needed etc.
And please don’t just go and comment: “Just do a 2JZ haha” that’s not what I’m aiming for otherwise I would just try and drop an LS in it.

There is better out there for that price. Mazworks, IAG, Full Blown and others.

I had Outfront build me 2 motors. First blew on Delicious dyno with less than 3000 miles. They blamed a clogged direct injector but I don't buy it. 2nd motor (closed deck) spun a rod with less than 1000 miles. If you must build an fa20 please use IAG or someone else.

Yes, this is the engine swap section. I.E. an engine other than an FA20.
