Sell it. Buy 1.8 .. preferably with turbo/supercharger already fitted as it will be cheaper. Enjoy it after getting it checked out by someone who knows about engine management and turbo/super fitting. Otherwise make sure your start car has an LSD and is in good health (chassis rails?).
No reason to start with a 1.6. No doubt a Greddy Mk1 1.6 turbo kit could be fitted .. and then engine management sorted out.. but a whole load of pain for nothing much and less power. I think someone in Philippines or some such restrictive market did do it to a late Mk1 1.6 with the derated engine because that market never got a 1.8 , so may have done a Mk2 1.6 .. but really no reason to go this very little travelled path in the UK.
