My engine is blown - have no warranty and Looking for engine suggestions that don't include LS swap and excessive body modifications...
Just a nice powerful engine that is readily available and can for the most part drop in the space available.

Computer controlled cars of today you can’t just throw whatever engine in without (possibly excessive) modifications. Even engines from the same engine family (2.0L Nu GDI) won’t always be compatible because of minor differences. It’s better to stick with one from a Soul in the same years as yours (2014-2016, 2017-2019) because you can run into issues with sensors and other things not playing happy with the ECU. Best bet is to get a Kia remanufactured engine, or a low mile, well maintained salvage engine with a warranty.
