:( no, no factory offerings....MKI, MKII swift offered as barina till 94..then european Opel Corsa replaced the swift as Barina.
I am currently unaware of ANY motorshow prototypes or factory showcars (turbo`d)

btw, anyone know what th origin of this is..? (no its not OEM australian..looks rwd ?USA sourced?)


To me, this resembles a tracker/sidekick setup...i think.....its oddly familiar.

Have you considered India.
They sell variants of the swift here too.
And most of the parts made get exported to suzuki factories arround the world.
Oil Pan 10$ New
Pistons 10$ each (Presentlly taking 16 PSI boost runing for a year no issues)


Anyway my reason for posting you wouldnt happen to have a SOHC 16 Valve head lying rround would you.

Funny thing here is new parts are cheap but 2nd part are not.
Saw a DOHC 16 V Suzuki engine complete with ECU and dash going for like 30 pounds in the UK. Id buy if but it wont work for my setup.

Im open to swaping parts.

The CF hoods would be made in the US, so shipping would be no problem :wink:

I can easily list th sites you can buy performance clutches from..whats your application? toughened streetcar--turbo--race? you`d look, I'm retarded do best to ship from Australia or USA..but there is a guy in singapore that gets such things....basically you`ll be looking at under $500Au for a decent clutch..I can source one tho if you want, but yeah, if i gotta buy it outright... :( or i can look for one in good nick secondhand..drop me a PM with all th possible stuff you can swap (OEM cultus etc, aftermarket bodykits) I`m in paradise :D here in Australia cos we got nearly everything avail for a price....are you determined to swap or just to buy for a good price?
th Vitara 4wd (tracker\sidekick in USA) 1600 clutch can be made to fit, and it handles a lot more than th soft G13B setup
email me or pm IF YOU WANT TO DISCUSS FURTHER

Again,anyone else who is interested in trades overseas,let me know. Bewitched and I are swapping parts,and if ANYONE who has ANY Suzuki Sport/performance parts for trade for NA items,let me know.I can get the all amber corners,the Metro taillights(The same type a few posts up) , used clear bumper turn signals,etc. It would be neat to have a ring all aroung the world of people swapping parts. Again,ANY Suzuki Sport parts,big or small,useless or whatever,I'll take 'em!!

Interested in the clear bumper turn signal lights and clear side indicators!
Anything ur interested in...in the light dept.?
Clear corners were standard here.
Headlights,tail lights?
Centre piece in red or black?
Also i can get a nicer grill than the honeycomb that came standard.
Its a straight grill in black with about 5 or 6 fins...matches the bumpers on the mk3 perfectly.
