Wink L463 PDU. On the rebuild!

Hi, I introduced myself on here last summer after buying a Bianca S1. Just wanting to let you lot know that work has started and it will soon be back on the road again!
The guy I bought the car off stated that he rescued the shell from a breakers and that now it was 90% complete. A bit of a shock when I collected it and it looked as though it had been sprayed with rattle cans!
Since buying the car I have completely stripped it, where I was very happy with a solid rust free shell. Since then the shell and all panels have been properly painted and I have started building it up. I am still unsure about a few things as there are very few original rallye parts with the car, most are xsi parts but I'm just figuring out what I want as I go along. Link to a current pick here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BA6yaznpNYX/
I'd like some opinions on engine/gearbox choice. The car had fitted an early saxo vtr engine and box when I got it but also the original 1.3 engine but with no gearbox which I was gutted about. Don't know whether to run the vtr engine and box with the rallye head on and probably bike carbs and maybe later on go for a 16v conversion. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks, Tom.
