Default Whats the case with swapping a D13 engine to a D16Z6?

Got a 1.3 EG Civic and wondering whats involved to swap it with a D16Z6. Is it a straight swap or is there things that need changing and adapting? I've never done an engine swap before and wondering whats involved. I'm willing to get someone to do it for me if anyone knows specialists in the UK. Thanks for the help..

Huge amounts of time and money are required for an engine swap, it's costly and time consuming enough to swap identical engines. You'll also find your insurance is invalid if you don't tell them, and if you do tell them then it will be more expensive than insuring a car with the D16Z6 engine from the factory. You can't even lie to your insurance company either as you'd have to re-register the car with the DVLA with the new engine number else it would fail the next MOT it went for.
