My budget for the mods is around a Lac. So the car i am getting is for 70k + 1L on mods = 1.7L which hopefully should be a bit faster then a 1.6 GTX bought for 1.5L.

Its not a flood affected car. A flood affected 1.6 = non flooded 1.2 in performance.
Instead of going through the jholl of an engine swap i feel it would be easier to just get a 1.6 for 1.5 and spend 20k on basic mods...then as u save up u can mod the 1.6 further....im sure the factory installed engine would be a lot more reliable than an engine swap....especially one tht involves custom mounts nd stuff

I second you on that. Making custom mounts is not an easy thing to do. I have seen many cases where the mountings crack.

Custom made mounts is not the only headache , because there are plenty people here in bangy whose mounts are holding up insane bhp figures on cars like zens etc though the driveshafts and the gearboxes arent .. Its just the tidious process of having to go thru though id personally love it .. Finding such engines is neither the issue but its very time consuming and the chances of screw ups are more ..

U can however , buy a 1.6gtx and get the head ported and polished with headers for about 25k .. Thats what harrie did and he was more than happy ..

If you want a drag rocket, get a Zen instead and swap the engine. Cheaper, quicker, easier to maintain and mod, and tuners have had already got loads of experience with it.
