Exclamation Need help on engine ideas

My engine has seized, the oil was full, i didnt hear anything go wrong. I tried turning the crankshaft by hand but it wont budge. So im thinking engine removal. But im also thinking engine swap.
For under $1000 dollars how would you be able inexpensively drop in a piston engine, one that is reliable, runs good, is turbocharged, and goes fast, any ideas?
I realize that this may not be feasible

How do you know it's seized? Have you tried bump starting it?

Unless you already have all of the parts and a shop with fabrication tools and materials it is not possible....
