getting a car engineered.

I have a laser which we have put a twin cam motor in.

ie 93 KH laser 4 door 1.6ltr single carb single cam replaced by 1.8ltr efi dohc extractors and exhaust with stock cat out of 92 KF TX3

What I would like to know is, does it have to be engineered and if so how do I find out what the engineer is looking for etc.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: getting a car engineered.

KH TX3 had the 1.8DOHC as standard, so shouldn't be a problem. Mechanically identical as far as brakes etc. Use the original 1.6 engine number and it becomes a head swap only.................. Illegal, but who cares?
