1.9 rebuild options

I have all these ideas floating through my head about what to do with my GT.

I'm trying to figure out if it would be worth it to just rebuild the 1.9 but include the following:
cams
bigger carb
port & polish
straight flowing exhaust
stiffer valve springs & new valves
balanced crankshaft (don't know if this is worth it or not)

I'd obviously get all new seals and such, everywhere. Would these mods give decent performance for the cost, or would I be better of just getting a whole different engine (rotary or miata)

Thanks (still learning about these cars here...)

i have the same ideas...

i was thinking the exact same thing, should i rebuild my 1.9 or just replace with a miata engine? i am leaning towards the miata swap, i have found a 1994 1.8 with 85k for $600.00, that has got to be cheaper than rebuilding the 1.9

i say go for it, maybe we could figure this out together...
