Nice work on the wheels and new stance. That is just what I'm hoping to do to my '99 Swift. Need to find a set of 14" wheels and tires as I now have winter tires on the car with original size steel wheels. Where can I find a set of those wheels??
Thanks for any info.
See ya
Phil

I love the wheels also , are those off a Hyundai ? and did you buy the silver bumpers or did you spray paint them your self ? Here is what my silver Scooter looks like but I think the bumpers might look better silver also .

Rims are aftermarket 14's.

A set of Swift GT rims would probably be better for performance )a lot lighter).
We painted the bumpers with some cheap color match spray paint.

I guess I could update this thread.
Image
My son bought an RSX and has been busy building that, but in the meantime, my older son's S10 starting acting up, so he bought the 01 car out of necessity. These things tend to stay in the family.
After TOTALLY beating on this thing for a year, he has a new appreciation for the Swift. He always made fun of me for driving one, but now he understands.
Image
Image
We ended up doing the cam, installing the 16V manifold, complete 2" exhaust, and a 4.10 trans. It was pretty quick, and would keep up to the RSX.
The 4.10 trans starting popping out of fifth, so he did what he always does, and stole my spare 4.39 and put that in.
Of all the mods, he says the 4.39 was the most dramatic improvement. It's just too bad the rev limiter is so low.
So... after finding an 89 Sidekick with 8000 km (yes, less than 5000 miles), the Swift was retired and relegated to autocross duty.
Image
He says gutting the car, and kicking his girlfriend out during runs, he picked up 10 seconds on his best time.
If we can find a good set of stock springs for the right price, we'll install them on extra struts and have a low set for autocross, and a high one for rallycross :P

That the 1.6 16v manifold? The flange looks nothing like my dohc manifold.


Find another one and ill trade you my stock springs. :)

Yes it is. The flange is a little different.
If you have a GT exhaust manifold, modify the flange and use it. It's 2 mm bigger on the runner diameter.
