130 hp; Yes... Break the college fund? Also Yes...

Unfortunately, rebuilding a 2.0 Type IV is not like throwing parts at a 1600 cc VW... IF you want reliability! Heads are a big and expensive issue; most original 2.0 heads will have cracks radiating out from the valve seats...

Jake is not going to be interested in how to do a rebuild 'On The Cheap"...

I believe the motto is "Do It Right, Or Don't Do It At All"

So, yes, you can get the 130 (or more) HP... and reliability...

But, you are going to bust the College Fund all to heck!

Soooo... now what???
