cheapest option is to buy a whole 145/146, preferable a snashed one, take out the engine and sell the rest for scrap. The car will be £450/500 or so and the scrap vale £100. On ebay engines are typically £800-1000 due to the large number of 147/156 owners not checking the oil or snapping the cambelt.

you'll need to swap all the anciliries over, the sump and possibily the engine mounts. Plus you'd be wise to change all belts and big end bearings while it's out. It's a big job by all accounts...
