Before y ou change out the engine, I would suggest a compression check. Since the car doesn't miss, I'm guessing the timing isn't too awfully off. Do you smell gas at the tail pipe? Is the exhaust blue? If the engine is good (good compression, no blue smoke), then you have a problem with your fuel delivery or an associated sensor.
This is an interesting one - keep us posted!
