I have a 1999 rover 200 1.1 Hawaiian blue that has 50.000 km and is in mint condition. I'm thinking of tunning it I can't find information about how to fit a 1.4 16v head. I'm also looking forward to upgrading the throttle body and adding an exhaust valve and some 15' wheels. I don't want to engine swap etc. I'm looking towards maybe 70 hp. Can i please have some advice about this.

It would be possible to upgrade your 1.1 with a 16v head but the gains would be minimal. You could consider converting it to a 1.4 by changing the crankshaft and conrods to increase the stroke, but again it's a lot of work for little gain. An engine swap is the best way to gain any meaningful increase in power.
Personally I would leave the engine alone and enjoy the car for what it is. Make sure it's kept well serviced and has decent tyres fitted.
