I was thinking of upgrading my Rover 114SLi (1.4i) engine to the Rover 416 Honda Engine (1.6i). Would this be possible to do? And how many complications will arise (As i know the engine is mounted a different way to the metro, so i will have to modify that a bit).

The only real problem i could see would be the radiator which is quite a bit bigger in the 416 to the metro.

Really can't see it working to be fair without alot of modifying. Custom mounts and driveshafts, wiring and plumbing issues, exhaust would be all wrong aswell as gearlinkage issues etc etc. Much easier to swap to a 1.8 K series

There are minis that have it done and they go like stink (well its a Bseries honda not a D like the 416) .......

BUT its a hell of alot of work - not just a plug and play job. New wiring sub frame the lot.

How about a 1.8 k series - they fit with less hassle apparently.
