Hello everyone, thanks for leting me join TEAMSWIFT. I wanted to rebuild the 1.3 sohc of my car, but i think that maybe i could swap it for a 1.0 sohc that may result in a better MPG, but im not sure of this, since i dont know if i have to change other parts, like throtle, intake man.,computer, etc. Maybe its too expensive. Whats your opinion?

Find a parts car, there is a lot of stuff that is different. I made this swap on a 95 sedan and it was fine I had a complete wrecked parts car.

Downgrading to the 1.0 will not improve fuel economy, you still have to lug around the same mass, find a good 2nd hand 1.3 and swap it over.
