High Mileage-what do?

I was converted from honda, after totaling my Del Sol, and recently bought a 2003 foci zx3 with 193K

I'm Loving the car so far. and I defiantly want to build onto the 2.0 zetec engine. Not a lot though. maybe turbo with 6 or 7lbs psi with supporting mods but keeping a stock look on the outside

Now I know 193k is a lot. what would be most cost effective (and smart)

1.) buying a new P&P Head with new valvetrain and keeping everything else I have. (the tranny is a year old since it was replaced)

2.) Buying a whole new shortblock and swapping it out and mounting up to my existing tranny to save a few bucks.

3.) P&P my existing head. with new valvetrain

PS. I've been here a few days and you guys are a lot less "conceited" compared to Honda Fanatics. Love what you guys are doing here.
