Sorry for the crappy pic. its from my phone.
I had to fab a complete passenger side motor mount as the samurai mount does not line up with the hole in the block. ( it lines up with two but that it. )My mount grabs five bolt holes in the block.
Driver side mount i clearanced for the exhuast.
The water outlet on the rear of the head head was solved with a remote mounted thermostat housing. i fabbeb a flange that bolts to the back of the head then welded a short radius 90 to the flange . i have the tstat mounted under the intake .
Now running a Sidekick radiator with a 16'' flexalite electric fan.
The power compared to before is impressive. With 513 gears and 33 '' tires it pulls hard through all four gears!
Just picked up a set of 33'' pitbull rockers , and will be entering a rock crawling comp at the begining of august. Competing in the stock class and im going there to WIN!

a FI sammy tank probably doesnt have the fittings you need. the only thing itll share is the fact that it has an in tank electric fuel pump.


if you want to make use of the entire OBD2 diag system you will need to swap in the complete swift evap system. charcoal canister, solenoids, custom hard lines, etc.

personally i would just live with all the evap codes and enjoy it.


fuel pressure is 38-44 psi

No the FI sammi tank doesnt have all the fittings needed for the swift evap system.
But it has the pump and the proper size fuel lines for a FI setup i never understood how guys are running FI in their sammis the the stock tank and lines. Sammi return fuel line is much smaller than swift FI lines. I allready have new lines run.

I was thinkin of eventually gettin a tank built to have all the required sensors and fittings in use.
But for now i need a gas tank in the stock location in order to compete in the class i want. So ill put in a FI sammi tank for now and live with the codes.

Is there anyway of tricking the ecu into thinkin they are all operational.
I want to get this thing tuned up properly and before hooking up my zex kit! Lastnite installed new plugs one step colder, and indexed them aswell!
Need to tune my exhaust a little more too. I dont really like where i have my second o2 sensor located.
Gotta get you guys some pics and vids up!

im sure you could make it work but itll take some custom fab and an understanding of how the system operates.

Well since i put the pitbulls on , it no longer has the power in 5th gear for hwy driving. Sorta feels like the old carbed engine.
So i decided to turbocharge it.
1293 cc engine with a t4 turbo . i have no idea how its going to work or if its going to work. But i have just about everything needed. All i want is more power on the hwy, and hopefully reliability.
More all around power, blow off valve sound, and a little whistle will be the bunus if it works.

It will be a remote setup, this morning i hacked off my exhaust, and started the " up pipe" .
It will have a 3'' down pipe and if i can fit it, a full 3'' exhaust.
-38mm tial waste gate, recirculated.
-turbosmart vee port bov.
-aem wideband
-tial t4 flange
-vibrant 38 mm flanges with stainless gaskets
-big turbo. TOO BIG

Need a few things but hoping to fire it up on the turbo by next friday.
pics to come

if anybody knows i was wondering where the o2 sensor for the wideband should be. in my up pipe or or down pipe.
right now i have a bung in the up pipe, about 18'' down stream of the manifold.
Or should it be after the turbo.

full T4? WAAAAYYYYYYYY too much turbo. hell even a T3 is a bit large.


you would be better off finding a 2G DSM T25 or 3000gt td04 9b


wideband should be in the downpipe about 12-18" from the turbo. further is better (heat will kill it)

Thanks for the reply.
I do have a back up plan turbo, if this beast is surging too much.

Today im working on a oil tree to feed the turbo and a oil pressure guage.
I removed the sensor from the block just above the oil filter. is this a bad place to get oil for the turbo from. There is no oil restictor on the turbo.
The turbo line is gonna be 3/8.
Thanks for any help.

Allready done. Oil tree is set.
thanks vr4 with your comment and more research. im gonna step it down to 1/4'' line. Im using metal brake line, flaring it myself. 3/8 is too big. My bad.
I plan to do a oil flow test . and make sure im around 2l/min.

ok guys any tips on what my options are for fuel and tuning.

- ive been reading on the aem f/ic. , but cant get any for sure info whether it willl work with the swift obd2 ecu. one thing i read was that you need the factory scanning tool to check and adjust fuel trims?

- what are my options for bigger injectors, and fpr?

Might just use a fmu. not sure yet

i can verify the esteem 1.6 injectors are bigger. i DONT know the actual cc/min of either the swift or esteem injectors. ive looked all over but never found reliable info.


i can confirm my fuel trims went from 23% down to about 4% on my 1.6 after i swapped the esteem injectors in place of the swift 1.3 injectors..


you dont need a factory scan tool to monitor pids. most generic scan tools can see them. heck my $10k snap on verus cant access the ecm using model specific. it must be done thru global OBD2. i dont know anything about reflash capabilities of these ecus. havent tried out any piggy backs either. i do intend to try at least an safc when i go turbo.
