k24 engine swap

Looking to swap my engine due to burning oil. What year is the best to swap out with, or what other motor would be the best plug and play swap. Would a tsx swap work with my i4 5 speed?

the only plug and play option is another k24a4. A tsx motor will require engine management such as kpro or ktuner

is that the only thing i would need? how much would a engine management cost?

Or is a engine rebuild better by replacing all the piston rings, gaskets ect?

Depends on your budget. But easier to just find the same motor and drop it in.

^ k24a1 might be a good choice also if you have a cable throttle. Its from a CRV and you can always add a k20a2 head later down with kpro


or just get a stock motor for ease of installation

could be it something else, would a compression and leak test help diagnosis? Oil light comes on after 3100 miles so its burning pretty fast, i had to change my o2 sensor and there is black gunk in the exhaust pipe
