I Pressume that you are converting from an 8 valve engine to a 16 valve engine, somewhere along the lines of an X16XE, like for like engine size. It should be a fairly straightforward swap, provided that you get the engine loom with the engine, and the ECU

found this on ebay, and provided you can get the mounts, loom and ECU for it from the same car or similar you might be lucky, but its £150 plus postage

Or change to the multipoint head and intake. 100bhp standard. Probably an easier swap too. AndyMK3 is doing it at the moment. My attempt failed because i had the wrong head.
