Just stick with the same engine. Weather it is a 1.8 or 2.0, it is a very strong engine. If you have to replace the engine, then maybe get the 2.0, but it isn't worth the money to swap it if you don't have to replace it (only about a 5hp difference).

A trany swap shouldn't realy cost you any more then an engine swap and will do more for performance. If you decide to ever do any more serious tuning, you wil find the auto trany won't hold up very well without some expensive upgrades.
