Depends what's wrong with the old one? 200.00 is not going to get you a much better motor then the stock one. You have a 26cc now you can then go up to a 29. 150.00 for a kit will get you something better. Maybe a race port and polished 29. Problem with a kit is you are reusing some of the old parts of the original motor. Nothing worse then new rebuild and a old parts blows it up. Both ways work great you get more for your money building it yourself with a kit.
It also depends on what you want to do. You can go high torque or high RPM.

Another way to waken up the motor is to get a better pipe. Jet pro or GBE make good pipes for the Baja.
