You probably are looking at installing the whole drivetrain, engine, mounts, transmission, engine harness, new PCM, and maybe more. Do some research to find out what exactly you need. I would say, not worth it. Find another vehicle with a V6 and sell the 4 cylinder might be a better option.

I still owe to much on this car. I love the car but no power. I almost need a small turbo

Sounds like your going to have to live with it for a little while.
