What ill do is take apart and see how bad it is. i really don't have the funds to get a new motor.

Is push comes to shove, should i go with a high port or low port? Maybe even VVL.

The stock DE's seem to be very rare in FL right now.

VVL's and DET's are everywhere but you have to get them from the engine importers.

Usually the VVL's are like 3-400$ cheaper.

If you are limited on funds, a VVL may not the the way to go as it's not exactly a "direct" swap and a few additional cost items are needed for the swap to operate correctly and through the range (read: cam engagement for instance).

Lowports have a better IM, are newer and the head flows more. Apart from that, they are essentially the same from that perspective. However, if you have a 95 or later, you will have to worry about new emmissions controls, etc. So its best getting the engine from your generation chassis.
