I have to switch out my head

So in reading this , the Charade head can be basically bolted on without major adjustments or mods??

I have a line on a rebuild and would love to get it

Any help would be great

I am looking at upgrading my car.
 (it has piston slap and i want bigger tyres so it will kill any power that i have)

So Let me get this straight. the best thing to do would be to get hold of a 1.6L HD-EG De tomaso engine and ECU?
(or is there a better combination for more N/A power?)

Second I was thinking of supercharging it, so using the 1.3L crank rods and pistons in a 1.6L for a lower compression ratio. (which would be good for Supercharging) but would that reduce the torque?

What do you think would be the ideal setup? (i want to use it for 4WDing and a run-about) so high torque would be good.
