Boxing AR 147 1.9JTDm 8V to 16V conversion

Hi guys,

i've bought me an awesome 147 facelift recently, and of course after changing all the consumables such as oil, belts etc the next thing that crossed my mind was ... yes you guessed it! MORE HORSE POWERS! So... i already have the FMIC and will be installing GTB2056VZK turbo soon, but then i started thinking.. would it be a good idea to convert the car to 16V, as it is 8V CF4 engine.
What would i need to change in order to have the 16V head mounted and working properly?Intake and exhaust manifolds? Fuel pump? Injectors? Pistons and segments? Did anyone do something similar before and is willing to share some experience? My goal is to make the car 250+ hp and use it as daily, so that is why i started considering this convertion thing as an option.

Unless you are looking for a challenge it's probably easier to start with a car that already has a 16v engine as they are no more expensive or difficult to find. You'll still need to spend plenty to get past 200hp but it is a well trodden path.

If you relish the challenge of an engine swap it may be worth contemplating if a 20v transplant is possible.
