That depends entirely on the skill of the person doing the rebuilding and what you want when you're done. If you rebuild the larger engine or have it rebuilt for you, you could end up with more power and you could specify higher compression pistons, modified head and a hotter camshaft. For that matter, you could turn it into whatever you want. On the other hand, sometimes stock is all you want and it's good to not have to worry about making things work. It'e all entirely up to you and what you're trying to accomplish.

How do you fix a 97 Saturn Power Window regulator without the cost?

Easy! 1) Buy the Saturn repair book at any an auto store. That will show you the steps to taking the door trim and panelliung off. 2) Look on Ebay for a used Saturn door regulator. This may take a while since there is not always a used regulator being auctioned. orBuy a new replacement regulator on Ebay or online.3) Install it yourself from the instructions in the satrun repair manual. or Get a friend to do it and buy them beer and pizza. This should cost no more than $100 (including the booze), and you could get one used for maybe $40 with shipping. Heck, I'll come fix it for a bottle of Makers Mark.
