Could a GA14DS be replaced with a GA16DE.

without having to do anything major to mounting points!Could the 5 speed manual gearbox in the car be used with the new engine or would I need to change that to!Would changing from carby to EFI be a big problem with computers and electronics or is that all part of the engine!Approxiamately how long would it take a good mechanic to do it!Thanks.

Actual mounting points for engine and box shouldn't be too much of an issue.
It is quite a hassle changing from carb to EFI to be honest.
Will probably need an auto sparky as well as a mechanic to do the whole swap, plus you will need to get it certed.
If you aren't able to do any of the work yourself then its going to cost quite a bit.
To make things slightly easier, you could always convert the GA16 to carby.

Presuming I have the CC ratings correct . You could be in for even more $$$ then already mentioned.

Cert for the bigger CC engine . for a start then possibly brakes & brake hose upgrades
