How about a high compression jdm 2.0 build? Not super high, but a little higher than normal compression on a boosted motor will provide for a lot better throttle response. You not needing or wanting gobs of power, this could easily be built and be totally reliable. Having power ASAP would be a lot better for your purposes. High Compression turbo motors are fun. I knew a few people with High Compression Sr20's back in the day when I had my swapped 240, and I always wanted to do it to mine. They were just so "quick". Turbo lag was non-existant and response was nucking-futs. I can only imagine what it would be like to have my sti building full boost 600-900 rpm sooner; and with your car's super low weight, the response would be astonishing
