Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

The 1.6 will fit in the 1.4 place and bolt up but the main wiring harness will not be the same and will need to be swapped as well as the ECU.The gear box will not have the same bolt pattern to bolt up to the 1.6.It would be much easier to replace the engine with the same engine.
