can anyone forsee any big problems with the swap. I have a 91 sprint with a suzuki stage 2 turbo upgrade and a 2 stage boost controler, but the body on the sprint isn't safe (perferating rust all over), but the engine and drivetrain are in great shape, so I just want to swap it into a better body and the only body that I can find at a resonable price is a firefly. I've been reading some of the other post on here and it seems that there are some problem swapping a 1.3L into a car that had a 1.0L, and in all truth I don't know if the firefly is a 1.0L or a 1.3L ... but I'm pretty sure the sprints engine is the 1.3L (or I could just be a big dumbass .. I'm new to 3 cylinders). Any help would be appreciated.. thanks.

First off, your sprint shouldn't be a 1.3, as i'm pretty sure the sprint never came with a 4cyl engine.

The next thing is if both cars are manual, you shouldn't have any problems at all. You'll need to swap out most of you front end including comp and wiring harness.

If the firefly is auto, i'd look for a standard, cause you have to cut off the auto tranny mount, and drill holes.
