I'd look at the TX3 turbo engine. But before that think about putting a manual gearbox in it, I have a 1.6l N/A KC with a manual and it's an absolute blast, but I'd hate to drive an auto version.
Or you could go this way....

I only had a half hearted look into the getting the V6 into my KC. The hardest thing I found was actually finding the engine (in Adelaide anyway) Apparently it will fit (just) without modding the engine bay, but I abandoned the idea and concentrated on my Falcon instead. One day,perhaps.... These guys http://www.fordlaser.com.au could probably be more helpful.
But for price and ease of conversion I'd still be looking into a TX3 1.8l EFI Turbo swap, they go like a cut snake.

Google is your friend, I'd do a search for wreckers in and around Melb and ring around, even E-Bay might get a result. Put up a 'Wanted to Buy' on here, you never know..

How long is a piece of string?

If you give it to a workshop to do, anything between $2000 - $100000.

It is a very broad question. Try giving some workshops a call....google it...
