Since you live in Canada the best choice to get is premium model. It's basically a Type S with base model engine. You can then slap on the turbocharger that's coming out for K20A. It makes 320hp at the wheel.

Base model engine have a much lowered compression ratio than Type S. To achieve serious boost you need to have a lower compression to avoid detonation. You could lowered the compression on Type S with head gasket etc but that cost money and a lot of labor. The only problem I see with this is 5 speed manual vs 6 speed manual. You could still run a turbo on Type S. Just that it probaly be really low psi and not making enough powered to justify the dough you spend.
