Depends on what cost you get the donor engine and please remeber it is always better to rebuild as you never know how many km the engine has run.

Easier approach:

MPFI zen to MPFI e-zen
carb zen to carb e-zen

The moment you try to mix you could run into trouble.

well mine is its running super fine no issue.

only issue is fuel lines for me since i am running a high pressure fuel pump so the standard lines are bursting.

there is no other problems for me of any sort releated to the esteem engine or the swap of any sort.

other than that i face problems of traction major problem since if i accelerate a little fast of the signal the tires start squeling since i am running stock tires.

suspension is not very good or mine isnt.

i put some mpfi lines but there were leaks at the ends especially at slow speeds this happened.so i was searching for some better fuel lines but didn't get any.
all the had was the local stuff not sgp.

i should get some better fuel lines by this week.

Putting a fuel pressure regulator will only increase more pressure from stock. what i wanted to say is have you checked your stock F.P.R?

you can, if you remove a stock f.p.r & put aftermarket f.p.r you can adjust the pressure.
