So you want to do an engine swap for another engine with less hp and mpg when you own a GA16?

Could put a GA14 in there but that's gonna be well under powered for the car. Probably get less mpg because you'll need to rev it more.
Having owned a GA16DE and now with the SR20DE. I'd say mpg isn't far off. Plus the 2.0 is much more better to drive. If your planning an engine swap then for another GA16 in better condition or go upto an SR20. Not sure how it works in your country but here in UK you need to inform the insurance company and DVLA (people the car is registered with). This all costs and will increase cost of yearly insurance etc.

My opinion.......fix the issue you have. Mpg should go up.
Or replace with another GA16 which has no issues.

Doesn’t matter how much hp I have, I want to make it consume less fuel. Is it simple to change from 1.6 to 2.0?

Convert it to run on LPG?

Strip the car interior and make it lighter?

Anything is simple if you have the know how. For the change you'll need engine, gearbox, drive shafts, ECU and wiring etc etc. All will take time and skill to do.

Honestly your best option is to sort your engine and get better mpg or put a better/healthy GA16 engine in and get better mpg
