Bewitched:
I`m in Australia and there are few variations of parts available here that are`nt available elsewhere.
One of the standard parts available here is the clear corner lights (used as park\clearance) which may be of interest to overseas owners not willing to pay US$70something dollars at SSGTI.com, Back in 1997 I thought about exchanging international parts, and this website popped up with Australian bodykits etc. (USA :evil: )
Suzuki Swift GTi`s were the flavour of the month over here back in the early 90`s and with our population size, if there was a suzuki dealership in the state, there`d be Suzuki swifts (Also rebadged Holden Barina) everywhere....parts here are easier to find than Japan etc (I have a 15,000km 94 Cultus engine and box all fittings included) But nowadays the humble swift, whilst being a yardstick is now only an enthusiasts car.
Plenty did the show scene and there was a Suzuki Cup one make race for a while. :shock: http://www.redlinegti.com/forum/vt.19310.htm
I am interested in overseas extras like Geo Metro taillights, clear front indicators and Chevy\Firefly bonnets etc. There was also a Subaru version known as the Justy and the rear wings off these would make an interesting OEM alternative.
Any interest in international swapmeets? -Bewitched 8)

I've occasionally suggested international parts swaps on Redline, but never got any takers. I'm willing to trade clear bumper markers sourced from local junkyards for clear corners.

What is an t3 :?:
Do you mean an mkIII Suzuki Swift GT\GTi?
I`m after a complete set of 90-94 Metro taillights, they fit like 94 SSGTI
ones but have more red on the smooth lense....I want a set to have copied in clear (will be totally unique as far as I know :D )
The indicator corners might be of interest for my mates, see if we can work something out.
EDITED 6-1-06
I now have a set of T3 taillights, but am still looking for these..curved bulge lense, like MKIII suzuki
Any info on exact model\year of this car :?:

Canada got MK1 & MK2 models that had 1.0 L turbocharged 3 cylinder engines (hence "turbo 3" or t3"). The US briefly got the MK1 series.

You got email.

Dunno :? why no one follows this up.... Locals from Australia source parts from UK (fieldtrip) locally 4wd boxes are "unicorns" yet cost just $300au in UK..and via Ebay, Superchargers (exmini) cost $300au..I just bought one, and it cost me an extra $200au to get it freighted home..but $500au for something NOT AVAIL LOCALLY...sweet :razz:
rare performance parts from local markets must surely be worthwhile (bodykit anyone..?) maybe an international "Notice board" WTS (swap) or WTB on parts from non domestic markets......
Nudge, nudge debate me people....... :roll:

Erm...NO it is however a 45cubic inch displacement `charger...came off a new Mini Cooper S, very commonly available on eBay in Europe, as new owners remove these to fit a completely upgraded Supercharger system as part of a "John Cooper works" package.
Similar to Vloerdwijl`s....will be modified to fit on GTi engine (would you ask if the turbo setups were factory GTi..?)
Its not bolt-on, but it is suitable for fitment, thats the easy part done (gettin one) now to make a working setup.....

Ok, I see. I have never heard of a bolt on supercharger, which is why I was confused. Thanks for clearing that up.

Personally, I only trade in MKII\III (SF shape) however, if you look to the UK http://www.racing557.com/ you will find there are fulll clear taillights available.... I can ask around (with UK contacts) if you wish to deal with them, or perhaps you`d prefer to approach distributor directly..?
Cultus MKI engines are available to buy here (Australia) but you`re lookin at $1300au for a basic setup.... not really swap material :?
Please do not be discouraged...I might not be able to help, but this thread is to promote interest...anyone care to assist?
Edited 14-7-06 PM Gusgti, hes gettin digital M11 dash clusters, and Mk1 Gti clusters as well, he might be able to source special factory extras for Mk1 Owners :wink:

You may find some people interested in mk1 gti parts because we never got them in north america. Things like the intake manifold, the motor mounts maybe even the drive shafts would be handy for people here trying to put a G13B into their mk1. The mk1 distributor would also be something people may be interested in if they are going to carbs.

I can trade bumper lights for side lights near the headlamps. I have a set of them, in decent shape laying in my garage.

I am definetly interested in a 4wd box, but why are they avalible in UK so easily? I am now looking to have a dog box made because I have blow 2 counter shafts to date on my turbo setup.

I would to discuss with someone from UK.

I am into the local junk yards and do see some part avilable locally just not sure what other might want over seas?

4wd boxes are common in the UK as allot of 1.6 4wd sedans were sold, although they are harder to find now (many have rusted away) there are alladins caves of 4wd boxes when you look carefully enough

Specs? 11:1 compression ratio pistons, and cams have extra lift to compensate. tubular intake manifold with internal bellmouths and tapered runners, tapped hole in rear of block fitted with "Knock sensor".
And factory 4-1 extractors. Std g13b rated @74kw/Cultus rated @ 88kw
Or do you mean availablity? I bought mine back in 99 and it was ex-japan out of a 94 fwd model.
finding a complete cultus engine? possible...but they are ex-japan so locality doesnt affect avail really. here in Australia many were brought in to power Offroad buggies...and these have provided the supply of Extractors\intakes off parted out motors.
I have included pic of my intake (I have done work to it BTW)

You'll likely never find one but Jackson racing made a supercharger that bolted right on to the Swift. So the answer technically is yes, there is a bolt on charger for the Swift :P.

m, did that supercharger bolt on as intended for a swift..or did it just happen to fit? Pics or further reference would be interesting.... :D
G10...the cam specs you can get from rospen motorsport..and get your GTi cams reground..the extractors are easily surpassed by aftermarket offerings, the pistons are available from aftermarket OEM replacement..all you need really is the intake :D
If you are willing to spend the price some people ask for them..you could probably afford to MAKE one.
keep diggin and youll get these things :) bit like me, i`m lookin for a Suzuki Sport valve cover....theyre out there, but uncommonly for sale :(

Looks pretty much like the one I have on my car:

G10:As for the cultus intake manifold,I can get one for you but it will cost you an arm and a leg.To get 'cool' stuff it's all depends on money.
