Clio RSI 1.8

Hi guys I'm new to this forum.

I have a very old Clio mk1 RSI 1.8 8v that I want to bring back to life as there are so few now. More so I want to tune the standard engine and not do an engine swap.

I'm thinking;
racing cam
Head port and polished
Decat and cat back exhaust.

I believe if I can find an old Renault Laguna RXE 2.0 litre 8 valve I can take off the bottom end and fit it to the RSI head and fit it back into the car, obviously making it a 2.0 8v.

Can anyone confirm this or provide any good advice? I'd very much appreciate your help guys. Thanks.

They're all volvo derived engines the old 8v lumps and yes believe you can swap the bottom end over without issue
