IIRC the rear cupholder is an easy fix. Unclear from your post if it's the cover part that pivots or just the upholstered cover that you're having difficulty with, but both easy fixes. Pivoting cover just needs to be carefully pried with a screwdriver, and hope that your donor doesn't end up broken the way that your existing one is. the upholstered cover seems to fly off even if all of its retaining tabs are intact (both my beige one and my tannin red one did this), so I added a strip of butyl tape and it hasn't budged since.

Can make a decent bit of power with some boost. The 3.0 is a cheaper option but y'know. I almost put a 3.0 in my car a few times but I couldn't bring myself to tear apart a running and driving car.
For me getting the extra 40hp from B30 first is the easy button, then apply boost.
As they say, no replacement for displacement.
