It's already as close as it's gonna get. You're only missing a cam and some compression. What do you mean? Do you mean as close as possible to 160Hp? Or do you mean can you swap to the DOHC head? Because you can't swap heads.

I wish there was one easy answer to this question, but it has been my personal experience to try to get where you want to go for under $1000 and it is not an easy (or short) road. I was chipping away at it but the reality is that 160Hp is expensive. I was right at $400 when I realized how difficult Hp is to come by. I do think though that if I would have stayed N/A and put in the wrench time I could have made it, but I elected to go with a supercharger.

The key to any "budget build" is doing all of the work yourself. Research and wrenches; Learnin' and turnin'. E-bay will be your new best friend and you will have to get lucky on used parts. Joining this forum will be one of the best things for you. There is a ridiculous amount of collective knowledge on here, and there is also the willingness and patience to part with that knowledge; which is what (I think) sets HCF apart form other forums.

Like Sniper said, learn your way around your car...ask question on here when in doubt and you'll be aight. Consider this though: power is nothing without handling and braking.
