Since it "looks like a pig" I'd say you're probably better off looking for another VX rather than swapping out the motor and tranny. As Rusty94cx said, the tranny is probably the most important part.

If you're open to the idea, you could possible get something like a CRX shell and a VX swap for an even better hypermiling car.
