Regarding the increased performance, yank that turkey of a 2.3 motor out of there and drop in a 2.5 liter Ford Duratec. This swap will give you a much more robust and powerful engine for very little money.

Do a quick search, lots of threads here on the swap. As far as swaps go, it's pretty easy, the Mazda 2.3 and the Ford 2.5 are virtually clones of one another.
