Default Engine swap question

I have a 1992 Toyota Corolla EE100 with a 2E 1.3l carbureted motor, 5-speed trans. The motor is tired, never had much guts to begin with. Is there a direct swap motor upgrade solution that won't involve major engineering to accomplish? I like the car, just needs a little more power.

If you could get a 4A-GZE from Japan or off a wrecked MR2 (not sure of your continent) and slam it in, that would be amazing. That would more than double your horsepower in addition to a 50% increase in torque. It's a supercharged engine that's used on the same platform as your car so it should (emphasis on should) fit directly in to your car. I'd consult an expert on this swap before making any moves.

Otherwise, there's a lot of other engines that were available with your car. Here's where I found a good list:

Have you considered upgrading to a different car? Though I'd imagine these engines could probably be bought on the cheap, this is an expensive process if you're paying for labor.

It all kind of depends. Id stick with a toyota engine. If you have engineering experience then you could get one off of a wrecked one and give it some tlc. If you need some filters and stuff you can get and install easy. But some cracked manifolds or gasket heads can be harder to replace. Other wise, one with low to medium miles would be ideal
