Looking around for FA20s, holy crap they aren't cheap.
Yeah this is the only car they’re in unfortunately:/ looking at 2-3k

Found one at LKQ for $2500 in Texas and emailed my contact with them, but most of the ones listed on car-part are north of $4k. I'm not surprised in the current market, a lot of BMW engines I noticed are 40-60$ higher than what they were listed for a year ago.

I've been reading through your first build and leaning towards the HTE-Rs, going to sit in some next week. Do you see any issues with fitting them in full cage?
@Dave-ROR has them in his full caged FRS!

I have HTE-R 400s which have a narrower halo. I suspect the normal ones would fit also though but thats going to be cage dependant. I had my cage built for maximum clearance up top.

I used a 22 to crank the engine on my hydrolocked 2014 scion frs. I didnt even use a breaker bar cuz it turned all the way which was a huge relief. My frs flooded in 18 inches of water. It was so bad that my car started floating and i got out cuz water was up to my waist. After the flood i towed it home. Took out the spark plugs and cranked the engine. Oooooweeeee! water was coming out of the spark plug holes like a waterfall. Iam very lucky i managed to save my frs.
