So if I had $2000 and knew an ASE former subaru tech what should I do to my engine?

One shop quoted me over $2200 just to do my head gaskets and timing belt on my 1997 LGT 5MT EJ25D. This doesn't seem reasonable, but since my car has 181,xxx and an unknown service history, it got me thinking that it might be time for something.

So if you were me and had $2000 and an ASE certified ex-subaru tech who would do/help with the work for a VERY good price, how would you spend it?

I want the obvious: power and reliability. N/A would be easiest, but I doubt would provide the most benifits for this price.

I'm open to swaps and hybrids, but need something fairly easy to work on and obtain parts for.

Share your ideas/expirences please!

OH, and there is no emissions testing where I live so anything is an option.
