Plymouth Acclaim Possible Mods?

Hi, I have a 1990 Plymouth Acclaim 2.5L 4 cylinder @ 108,000 miles NON turbo (100HP *Love the car puts its so slow. ). This is the best running car that I have owned. When I look under the hood there is alot of space that could be used. I was wondering what I could do to make it a little faster without killing my pocket? Could the engine be swapped? If so what size should i put in? Could it be possible to put on a turbo? Are there any forum members living in Illnois that could put the parts on (at a resonable price) ? Also what would I have to do to make it a little louder. And what would be the possible mods i could put on to increase horsepower? If non of these mods are an option what would I do to increase MPG? Right now im running at roughly 20.5 mpg (city driving).

Thank You For Your Time
Mark

the engine could be swapped for the 3.0 v6, which is the other engine that car came with

after that, the next option is a small turbocharger, which is rather easy because the exhaust runs OVER the transmission on the drivers side

put a flange on that pipe, cap the converter flange on the rear manifold, and run a new pipe to the cionverter from the turbo ...
