    look around for a mazda carb or an EFI (EFI engine with wiring & ECU) it will be a BOLT-ON with no Cut-weld required as KIA is producing cars under Mazda & umbrella. - any other engine swap will not be economical in terms of swap as major cut & weld will be required while car VALUE will remain unchanged

    I have Spectra 2003, my car was having some engine problem, I have planned to swap this engine with 4A-FE,
    details are
    Fuel: EFI
    Make : Toyota (Indus Corolla GLi Japanese)
    Capacity : 1600 CC
    Good average on Petrol/CNG (as compared Original spectra engine)
    Parts are easily available
    Spectra original engine is 1500 CC

    But I solved my all Engine issues. Now its running superb on original engine
