Engine Swaps

If Stage 1 & 2 upgrades are not enough how about swapping out the entire engine. Like previous sections there are modest, moderate and elaborate upgrades. Engine swaps range from swapping just the block with a higher compression block, or larger displacement 2.0 block and reusing the same head. To changing the entire engine and fuel management system with a 16V 1.8 or 2.0 motor.
