Default 95 MX-3 1.6 DOHC engine swap to ???

I need help please... I have been researching different sites on the best options for doing this swap and have been getting conflicting information. Forgive the length of the request, but I want to get all the information out.
The vehicle is a 1995 MX-3 with the B6-DE 1.6 DOHC 4cyl engine. Vehicle has about 195K and is still running fine. The body and interior are in excellent shape. The vehicle has a 5 speed manual transmission.
What I want is to get some more HP. I am ready to try an engine swap and just want to know my options. I have seen some just go up to the 1.8 BP-ZE and some all the way up to a 2.5? Should a buy a rebuild kit for the one I have and get forged pistons etc. to perhaps introduce a turbo. (the parts seem hard to find and not very cost effective) or just swap to a larger engine. I see some that say this is a straight forward procedure, but others say that there are wiring harness issues galore.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
