For those Swift GT owner like me who searching performance parts thru internet, I found this web selling full line of products for Swift. The header is a good deal which is $149.99 + shipping. 52mm throttle body core exchange is $83. The company is located in Miami Florida. Guess those who stay in US would have big benefit. Furthermore, they are Suzuki Swift Racing Develop Team! I already ordered mine, check it out.

There has been alot of discussion on here about that site. Post back up when you get your header. They have alot of stuff but don't offer alot of info on them (I've emailed them on there t/b's and they won't offer up what they're doing to an oem core to get the enlarged size.) It would be good to hear from someone on the board that has purchased some of their products.

I've ordered from them and i have to say that they were great. Their customer service was amazing, i received quick repies to all my emails. They gave me very helpful advice, product was shipped promptly and was packaged very well. I would recommend them to everyone.

i resent any foul remarks made about this company. Andy the owner is very respectable, and trustworthy.

i have purchased the 4-1 header for my 16 valve sohc, its perfect. sent within 2 days after being built. his headers are built there and under his supervision.

i am purchasing a cooler thermostat from him, and more products in the future.

and for further reference. mike(WE0H) asked him about having the header mandrel bent instead of press bent and he talked mike out of spending an extra 100 dollars because andy said the gains wouldnt be worth the money. that my friends is someone trustworthy. this company is a great source for swift parts. they nearly have it all.

if you guys dont trust them thats your problem and you are all missing out on great products and great experience with a great guy

Yes Andy of Suzuki RD is one awesome guy. I have talked for hours at a time with Andy about racing and many other motorsports events as well as developing parts and almost anything else you could talk about. I will be going down to their store in March of 2006 to spend a day with Andy & his brother. I worked with Andy on the design of the 16v SOHC G13B header and can tell you that he is very receptive of ideas on developing a new part. He usually hangs out in the office late night so he can be there to answer customers questions. I don't think the guy gets much sleep as I have emailed back & forth at 2:30am Central which would be 3:30am his time. Talk about dedication to one's business. I highly recommend Suzuki RD to anyone looking for affordable parts for their Suzuki, Scion or any custom component. They get the job done in a timely fashion and provide you with a good quality part.

Mike

I have no complaints about their 4-1 header. I have the 16v G13B SOHC header on my car and it performs excellent. A very broad powerband with no end in sight for the topend :twisted: A rush in midrange as expected but plenty of low end to get the car moving. It also fit perfect. No clearance issues what so ever. It is still shiny chrome after driving in the rain twice and washing the car. Just make sure you clean it well the first time or it will stain like any chrome header would for it's first time getting hot.

What exactly do you mean by this Mike? Clean the outside of the header tubes before putting it on to reduce blueing? Clean it with what, mineral spirits, laquer thinner, alcohol? I'm fixing to put mine on and would like to avoid blueing if possible.

Laquer thinner and lots of it. I polished it afterward with dry paper towels. It is not showing any blue color at all so far. I did later get a couple sweat drip stains on it but a little spit and lots of hard rubbing with the paper towel brought them down to barely noticable. I suppose some dirty rain and a few fried bugs or spiders will eventually make for some hard stains to remove.

Chrome blues because of heat.... doesn't it? Which I guess makes sense to keeping it spotlessly clean as the bugs and water stains would be hot spots to start the blueing. From what I've seen if you drive a car hard at all *especially with any performance mods to it* the chromes gonna blue eventually once you get it hot enough.
