Anything is possible with enough time/money/knowhow. I'll just take a quick stab at this. You'll need the Swift, B18 engine, transmission, full wire harness, the ability to do some surgery to the harness properly, custom motor mounts, custom drive shafts, custom air intake, new shocks/springs to support the added weight of the engine, fender flares to compensate for the wide wheels you'll need to keep that power to the ground.

Sounds like fun! :drunk:

there are stickies at the top of each section that you should consult before posting.

this one sez:

Ok... I'm really getting sick of seeing this exact same post over, and over, and over, and over... "Can (insert engine here) fit into a swift?" The answer is no. Unless it's a Suzuki G16, G13, or a G10, no, it won't fit. But, here's the killer.. You can make it fit! All you need is experience welding tubular steel frames, modifying drive axles, fabricating angle brackets, mounts, and other adapters, and a very very good knowledge of automotive electronics... Here's an idea. Go find a (insert motor here), measure it, measure the transmission, measure the vehicle mount positions, axle lengths, and all that good stuff.... Then, measure the engine compartment of a swift, and take note of the mounting positions, clerances for things like the steering rack and brake booster.

We'll make an example of this post

THERE IS NO DOCUMENTATION ON THIS FORUM THAT EXPLAINS HOW TO ADD ANY MOTOR TO YOUR CAR OTHER THAN A SUZUKI G SERIES ENGINE.
So.. If anyone does decide they have the skill to get'r done, rather than ask the same questions over and over again, please... document it, photograph it, and post it. I'll make it a sticky.... Just like this one.
