    What's your budget? How long before you need the car again? What are you looking for out of the car?

    Why not just do the Z6 swap. The motor will drop right in, and there are a ton of articles out there on what needs to be rewired or whatever. It will probably be the cheapest route if you want more power without killing your wallet.
