Your kinda stuck, the rig was setup for the engine from the factory, to put anything else in would require a lot of fabrication and computer system changes. Sometimes you can find a "crate motor" that might be a little cheaper that a full factory engine. You could try summit racing, they might have a modified engine that will work with your emissions and give you a little more power, won't hurt to look around a little.
