Is your car an auto or a manual?
If it's a manual, what are your shiftpoints?

give me a little time.....
ther we go, found it.
part of your problem is the auto tranny, but that takes more effort to swap
The 2.2 should move the car better than the 1.8

The EJ18 in your car will be hard to tune. You'll need custom grinding of the camshafts to make a real improvement. That'll cost a bit. Then you need a custom ECU program to make it work.
EJ22 is the way forward

if i were to get the EJ22 engine to do the swap what would be the best model and year to look for to make the swap go easiest or doesn't it matter? also i just noticed when i open my gas cap air like rushes out, kinda like when u open a pop can, it sounds like it gets vaccumed or something? is that normal?

As far as improvements for NA engines - yeah , other that internal stuff, maybe lighter wheels, lighter flywheel (probably not less tha 11 lbs. though - some report of CELs with very light FWs) lightened (not underdriven) pulleys.
The above will not 'create' horsepower - but will remove losses and free up some ponies for the tires!
Then spend money on suspension bits. Don't make a dragster outta it - go for autocross if you wanna race.

It's easy, it's available, and it's cheap. You will spend less on the engine swap than you would on tires.
