Question Engine for my Camry

I'm desperately looking for a JDM engine for my '97 Camry LE. Engine designation code is 5S-FE. 2.2 li. 4 cyl. I'm really trying to stay under $1,000. Needing it to be able to just be swapped out. My fiance got one for his acura and they were able to just take the old one out and put the new one in. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've called several places and the people i talked to sounded like they could barely speak english. Feeling very frustrated. I just want my car running again.

Why does it have to be JDM? If you're just looking for a replacement motor you should check out local junkyards or car-part.com.

331,000 miles and the wife's 1995 Camry LE finally bit the dust...but we can rebuild it, we have the technology...

1993 Camry LE wagon, 4 cyl, 5 spd swapped...more to come...
