Suzuki G13B Twin Cam 16V. Forged everything, aluminum everything. Tough as nails, 100HP, something like 160 pounds. My apologies to the "keep it nissan" crew, but I just couldn't resist.

As I recall, blats never completed his swap. But Gav did:

Gav: The car drives really well. Starts perfect and warms up and idles down without sitting in the car and revving it up ... defiantly a quick little 1000
No need to modify the Suzuki engine:
* Lighter than A10
* More power than A15

also you cant kill them, like a smaller version of the 4age
that can take A series like rpm with 4-5 times less rebuilds
per season of circuit racing

I personally like the sohc 16v version 1.6L g16b
which sat in a 1999 suzuki carry van as a daily.

Amazing how, if you look at the 2L Mazda FE, Toyota 4AGZE, this Suzuki motor, Toyota 3SGTE and even the Nissan CA18, how similar they appear.

What I like about this Suzi setup, is that it will still be very light in the front, you will thus be able to sort out the handling very nicely. Plus you have those extra few revs to get you out of trouble when you need them. The intake is also pointing the right way.

Now I wonder how one of these would fair with a turbo attached. Even before you get to that, what would happen if you added a nice set of individual throttles, should scream like a pig in heat...

I heard you could bore these little monsters out enough to get them to 1500 cc's. Plus you can get the crank out a g16a for another 300 cc's. that's 1300 + 200 + 300 = 1800 cc's. & for the Australians, the way to go is get the transmission out of a suzuki sierra, which uses the g13a, single cam, engine. a friend was going to do this with a Fisher Fury/Lotus seven, but couldn't get the engine emissions legal, as it was being classified as a new car.

Great engine choice mate. I owned a Swift Gti in the 90's. They sound good and rev all day.

Yea, sidekick or tracker transmission. $58 kit to mount to this motor and use the 1.6L flywheel/clutch. Another option is the Samurai transmission which would bolt up, but the sidekick/tracker transmission is stronger and more refined.

hey David, I want one! Although I will wait until you have perfected the swap ... especially the driveshaft and motor mount part (and where the gearshift lever comes out into the cab).

That looks like a nice swap. Good power and nice n light.

Keep us posted as you go. Give a yell if you need a hand.
