I currently have a 2056 with a great top half. Big valve heads, Micro Squirt, and 96mm P/Cs. But I want more HP. I have set myself a $4K budget for building the bottom half, potentially going to 2.3 with a stroker crank, adding cam, balancing, and making some valve train improvements. But I started thinking, you know how dangerous that is, are there any other engine options in the $4K range that would provide reasonable HP increase. Not looking for 250 HP but just enough to keep it interesting.

Anyone got thoughts or suggestions? Open to most options but not sure that converting to water cooled is even remotely possible with the budget limit. Engine swap for proven HP increase seems the easiest option but thought I would see what the brain trust could come up with.
