There are easier ways to get that sort of power. The Honda B series engines will fit with comparatively minor modification these days (form what they used to need).
Below is the build process for one located in Australia - standard length front and limited cutting of the original unibody.
And whats your application? Daily or race car or something in-between? Daily, you could get something close to that with A CG13DE, these will just about fit without body modifications and can be tuned to around the power figure of the M series engine (but will be a little rope-able on the road) or a small turbo would achieve the same, but with a much more mildly mannered street engine.

I'd have thought it would go in?
How were your driveshafts lining up - that is your 1st reference point, then work upwards and outwards.
Even the G13B needs the inlet manifold altering and sits at a slightly inclined position. It's a tight fit I have good room above the head to the bonnet.
All of them need the alternator re-positioning to under the wing, otherwise you need to cut out the drivers side tower too much.
The M's have a smaller stroke so the block should be shorter.
Run it on TB's with a MegaSquirt and it would probably pull 130Hp?
To be honest it's a pig to remove and replace even the G13B's with a solid welded on front (like mine). I hoist the engine out with an attachment on no 1 cylinder exhaust branch and inlet stud so it comes out with the gearbox hanging about three feet lower than the cam cover.
I recon you could make good power the a standard G13 8v, TB's and a good ECU - loads of those still about in Switfts and they are bullet proof engines that weigh about 80Kg? If you got a 1.3 GS you get a great FWD for 10" wheels too? Then you can always swap over to a G13B head if and when comes up ... you can run them with the standard G13A pistons as long as you keep the cams standard.
Stick a post on the 16V mini forum in the Suzuki section ...there are loads of us on there too.
