Welcome to Teamswift, the suzuki engine is a bit small for a shove-it isn't it? I seem to recall the rally versions had 2.4l engines?

Have you checked out Runbags rwd swift?

With the heavier weight of the chevette, your main concern will be getting torque from it

I don't think there is much difference in weight compared to a swift.its only a hatch back.

Hi,

Can you not just fit Jimmy box?
There has been many rally car with G13B engine is Toyota Starlet RWD and so on.
You have covered your oil sump so you will need to have an exhaust manifold. I think there was aftermarket one for fitting into Jimmny.
Kent or Piper will regrind yours for you but asking Suprf1y will be better for you.

If you need spare let me know as I have few bits.

Cheers
Atchi
