Well you can consider putting a 1.6 ltr engine.... Upszie the tyres, k&n filter, free flow. I am sure experts will chip in!

Not to forget better brakes to handle the 1.6 ltr. outputs.

Sam,
Viper is selling his 143 BHP 1.6 ltr twin cam suzuki engine which i think is for 40K.
You can mate this with the Baleno box (dunno how much that is for), upgrade to esteem discs with the current zen discs for the rear for brakes, paint the calipers red/blue/whatever you like, give the car a nice sport paintjob, put a K n N full performance kit and get a free flow along with a polish, ported head job.
You should get 160 bhp + but it may require chassis modifications.
Another option is a simple esteem engine with the same jobs as mentioned above.
Alloys on wider tyres would help to but i guess you can't go above 14" that too with a low profile of 50 or something.

I'm no expert, but, if everyday city driving is what the car is used for, i'd suggest you to get a second hand 1.3l Esteem engine. Putting in a 1.6l engine in a Zen is a little extreme and is primarily a drag spec car.
Besides that having a 1.6l engine in a small car like the Zen would make it a monster to handle. Besides, you'll have to get new brakes, new tyres, stiffen the suspension to make it handle slightly better.
Honestly, i'd rather put my money on a 1.3l Esteem engine, which you should find second hand for about 12-15k. The car and the 1.3l engine are a perfect match. Its just right, its not insane, nor is it a timid car. Besides the eZens have a cult following. The owners would swear by it anyday.
So depending on whether you want an insane car with a 1.6l engine or a mad city car, you choose.
One more thing, buying a new engine will be a VERY expensive affair. Try to look around for low mileage second hand engines. Finding one shouldn't be difficult.

Over to the experts.

EDIT: On the other hand if you aren't looking for a new engine, i'd suggest you get a freeflow done. Get K&N airfilters, and a porting job. I think your car will be a decent performer.

hi mate, my piece of suggestion is to get a sparcely used esteem engine, hot it up n shove it inside the zens hood n u already have near 100hp at ur disposal. the esteems engine is a perfect fit onto the zen n needs no mod to the engine bay. like some one said, use the front brakes for the rear and esteems front on ur zens front. its a very necessary mod! happy driving

Hey Rev,

It is definitely possible and not too difficult. Give me a buzz if and when you want to do it.
