I had every single piece to bolt on 10psi of boost to my k20a3 and call it a day, and decided against it at the last minute. I fully understand that boosted cars can be daily driven, but your oppurtunity for advancement without losing driveability is far less than that of a NA motor.

I'm looking at the k20a2, z1, 24a2...the obvious NA motors to swap. I think NA with a 50-75 shot of NO2 will provide me with the power I want for a weekend warrior, and the drivability to get me to work and back every day.

My question to you is: I've read so many posts on here, some of which say different things. If / when I purchase the motor, other than mounts, header, k-pro...will I need to replace anything else since my car already runs a K-series engine?

You will need kpro for all of the swaps. Technically you wont need it but its pointless not too.
For any k24 swap you will most likely have header clearance issues and you need a crv side motor mount.

Here is a link to things you will need for an accord swap which believe it or not is the hardest swap IMO. http://www.ephatch.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58605
If your not a member you should definitely join lots of good info.

Personally i would do a k24a2 with a 6 speed tranny and if you want to spray then go for it.
