Take the engine you've got now. Bore it as far as it will go (might make it 2L) drop in a forged crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, rework the head. Then pinch your pennies and all up Vortech and supercharge that sucker.
If you play your cards right and lower the compression to like 8:1 you could push 15lbs of boost and crank that sucker up to 250 horse. That would fly in a 318 shell. But this would cost about as much as any of the other swaps and if it were cheaper it'd be like 1k cheaper.
Plus you get the custom factor.
