If you have to stay NA and this is going to be a 93 octane engine and you have a fair budget then the 2.5 is the way to go and you will see some very nice TQ #

If you dont have a good budget and still have to stay 93 octane then find a 2.3 and build that it cost about the same as building a 2.0 but you will gain some good TQ

If you have the budget to go boost then a turbo would be the way to go and for the gol of 200 the stock engine tuned properly wil last a long long time
