If you want a faster car, trade yours for a faster car.

it's not that straight forward. For a bigger engine, you'd need to maybe re-drill a hold for the gear stick, you'd definitely have to upgrade all your braking system, and inform the insurance company, so you'd be really out of pocket by now. What you might be better doing, is to simply have your engine now, professionally re-mapped or chipped, then change the little things yourself (k&N air filter, Split Fire plugs etc). This is still quite q decent amount of money, but far cheaper than an engine change, and also giving you better all round performance.
