Hi there, im new to the Suzuki engine world although I know a fair amount about the 4pot Swift engines.

Im after some info on the 3pot engines for a project I may be doing.

Im interested in what the little 3pots can make hp wise.
Porting I can do, and rebuilding etc isnt a problem.

My thoughts where a rebore (if its poss) with some lower compression pistons (vitara like the swift??), polish and port, bigger valves if space allows?, balanced and lightened, hyprid or bigger turbo, cams... you get the idea.

I wanted to go with the 3pot for lightness, and I dont have a lot of space in my project car.
Also, what can the gearbox take? New clutch obviousally.
And mpg? , what do these things get.


Tossing up between this setup and trying to find a Swift GTi engine in the UK and ther rape my knuckles getting it in my car.

Dave

Oh, and would it be best to get an older 3pot or newer?
Both would be second hand and both run on Megasquirt or alike.

I would have to agree. The MK1 head has far more potential for building power than the mk2s. The intake manifold however isn't the best in my opinion.
I have one kicking around, but I would have to do some digging...
