You won't find any info on it - there's no reason to do it when most of us have easy access to the BP 1.8.

Do you have MX-5s?

No, I meant does your country also have MX-5s? As you can use the engine out of the MX-5 (with a few small changes)

mx-5 are very rare here...and then if i have to swap a new engine the displacement should be the same... i.e 1.6l swap with another engine which is 1.6l according to new laws...

You could get a B6 DOHC from an MX3 and swap the cam shafts with very little effort. If it's legal in your country you could run this on motorbike carburetors as well.
