Hi everyone!

I'm from Brazil and I'm thinking about buying a 93 swift gti (g13b engine) and seller also has g16 engine plus one extra g13 head.

Question: is G16 engine swap a good choice? what will I need? will I need change pistons, rods and crank or can I use all from g16 engine?

thank you and sorry by my english.

Hi and welcome.

Your English is fine, in fact it's easier to read than most young kids who have English as their first language...

This is only my opinion and it's been a long time since I have owned a suzuki with a g16 but it's not a performance engine and never will be, it's a torquey relaxed engine and you can't make any more hp than a g13b twincam, it will have a bit more torque but thats about it.

Honestly...keep the g13b, try to keep the car as original as possible and in good condition, it'll have a much better resale value.

it is possible to put g13b head on g16 block.. but you'll get around 125hp and that's it.. and you won't be able to rev it high (around 7k max i think, better 6.5k) or you'll destroy it..

keep g13b, put some cams in (210/340 or similar), chip ECU, some upgrades on intake and exhaust.. and you'll have nice happy reving engine..

for cams contact 3-tech (at the top of the site you have link)
about flywheel.. i don't know.. i use stock.. i wouldnt go for much lighter..

go one thing at a time.. try cams and chip first :)

you might look into shorter FD and LSD (torsen/helical type is nice for street drive w/o power steering)
i use 4.9 FD and helical LSD made by guy in hungary (4.9 fd is pretty noisy - 12/59 teeth) and polyurethane engine mounts to reduce wheel hop and keep engine steady :lol:

This is what happens when you run a G16 with a gt head and rev it to 7000
