Hi there I'm new I've had a 93 sohc swift for about 6 months and I would like to swap it for a dohc engine the engine. The one I'm looking at is cheap It's a dohc 1.3l from an 89 swift GTI and I'm wondering if that would work. Just interested in gaining experience and I figured this car would be perfect! Also if you have any other info that might be useful to me it's much appreciated. :D

since nobody has answered, your swap will be pretty much plug and chug. you need to change the engine wiring harness and the ecu. you will also need to do the conversion for the twincam's coil and ignitor.

the engine harness will have the connectors for the distributor and maf. you may have to pull in wires for the oil pressure switch and tach.
