Ignoring the fact that money spent building a 2L NA is money wasted, the main issue is that the DET has a compression ratio of 8.5:1, which is fine for a turbo running high boost, but is horrible for non-turbo application after the 1970s. My Honda has the same CR but 200cc more displacement, and it's slow as hell. If you want to make any form of power, you'll either have to spend $3k+ rebuilding the bottom end with high compression oversized pistons, or you'll have to turf the DET and install a DE (10.7:1 CR) or Autech DE (11.7:1 CR) instead. Neither option is cheap, and the car will still get dumpstered by Type Rs.

N/As cost a lot more to get power from than turbos, you'll have to spend a shit load on high compression pistons, head work, cams, engine balancing and light weight parts to make it rev.
Save all your money for when you can drive a turbo or buy a faster N/A car, Bf xr6s are good for 200kw with an exhaust and a tune

If you have the skills to pull the engine and swap in a new one, you could do it. even then, your time is still has value, and is still wasted doing something like this when you can just buy something else.
I am amazed that when making a decision that costs as much as a car does, people do such little research BEFORE they spend the money.
