A cam will help, but to keep it drivable you are only looking at a 5-7 hp gain. I can't imagine getting a N/A 2.0 to 130 whp. Maybe you can get that at the Crank....

I think you should first have the engine checked (since its old), compression ratio checked and maybe increased (if you arent going to turbo it, to around 10:1 maybe 11:1), cam, P&P... The old NA recipe.
I think it isnt hard to get 130 whp from a 2 liter engine, but it wont be streetable. People get 140 from 1.8 liters here in Brazil (using carbs).
