I have a 2001 swift and I see g13b on engine block. Shouldn't read g13bb?

Depends, could have been swapped in a previous life.

The G13bb is SOHC so should be easily recognised. Throw up a photo if you want more clarification but manufacturers tend not to stamp the wrong engine codes on their products :p

I don't think the car you found has been swapped if it's that green one with very low mileage. I can confirm but I think I've seen g13b stamped on 98-01 sohc 16v blocks here in Canada. I have a bunch, I'll take a look sometime.

i think only difference between g13b and bb block are pistons.. block itself, crank and rods are same.. so there is chance all engines have g13b stamped on block..

The easiest to find out is by the power output
G13BA =50 kW
G13BB =56 - 63 kW
G13B= 74 - 83 kW

G13BB

The SOHC 16-valve G13BB (introduced in March 1995) has electronic MPFI Multi-point fuel injection, generating 56–63 kW (76–86 PS) and 104–115 N·m (77–85 lb·ft).[1] Later G13BBs have two coil packs bolted directly to the valve cover, although early models still had the coil packs mounted to the left side of the head - where the distributor was traditionally located. This engine uses a MAP sensor to monitor manifold pressure, unlike the G16 series. This engine has a non-interference valvetrain design. It uses the same G series block found in many other Suzuki models and so it is a popular conversion into the Suzuki Sierra/Samurai/Jimny 4WD, which uses either a G13A (85-88) or G13BA(88.5-98). This allows the engine to fit into the engine bay simply as engine and gearbox mounts are identical and both engines are mounted North-South.

It was used in the following vehicles:

1995– Suzuki Baleno
1998–2000 Suzuki Jimny, Suzuki Swift
1998–2001 Geo/Chevrolet Metro
1999–2007 Maruti Esteem
2000–present Maruti Gypsy King
Ultralight aircraft [1]

So they all use same block(thats why they all have G13Bon the side),but if they are monopoint Sohc 8v it is a G13BA ,Sohc 16V multipoint is G13BB,and G13B is Dohc 16v multipoint. and All G13 Engines have a bore size of 74 mm

Are you sure about this statement.
My block that came out of a 98 has the lighter duty hollow crank and I'm pretty sure the DOHC has better rods too.

no i'm not 100% sure.. but i heard that g13bb have same crank and rods as gti.. since they both have 75.5mm stroke and g13a (again same block, but all internals different) have 77mm stroke they can't share crank..

Block is not the same. The webbing on the later g13bb is better (according to engine builders at redlinegti.com) and the sleeves are straighter (??). Only the GTi has forged crank. GTi's rods are forged also.
I have also seen g13b with steel main caps. I think these were out of a jimny.
