I've got a cracked head with good cams for a G13B SOHC. I'm in New Zealand, if you wan't them, you can probably have them, if you are interested. <p></p><i></i>

eeprom editing isn't new and it needs to be done on a dyno and real-time to be worth it. Make sure your ECU has a chip in it (are you SOHC or DOHC?). Do you know what equipment they use? 7 hp is a weird claim as I don't see the fuel curves giving those kind of gains. The benefits are usually in changing both timing and fuel maps and yes it can make gains if the tuner knows what he is doing. You have to be careful as some less experienced tuners will go for that extra hp over safety. <br><br>$400USD is actually cheap for a custom properly built chip that was tuned on a dyno and real-time. It can take 5-7hours of continuos testing real-time to see the kind of gains all the way accross the power band to make it worth it. It is better matched if you have lots of mods or plan to make lots of mods. Is it worth it if you have SOHC? not terribly. You could put that money towards DOHC and make 30hp. <br><br>If you have DOHC, go with the chip Tom has. Some software nerd spent a lot of time making it once upon a time, and you will see gains from it. For hte money you can't compete with the time that was invested by someone in this chip.<br><br> <p><br>Kyle Jones <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong><br><br><br>Your friendly TeamSwift Op.<br><br>Junk-Yard Turbo set-up, formerly NOS-fed 1989 Suzuki Swift</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--></p><i></i>

The G13B stands just for the block!!! It comes in samurai and swifts,no matter if it is a SOHC or DOHC (gti) G13B is just the BLOCK. An sohc and dohc engine uses the same block, just the internals and the head changes.<img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/glasses.gif" /> <p></p><i></i>

Oh btw the balenos 1.3 also uses the G13B block.<br>That's why i buy those motors,sell the rest of the parts and keep the blocks por spare.<img border=0 src="http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/glasses.gif" /> <p></p><i></i>

not a misunderstanding...<br><br>I've seen other designations used by companies to help designate each individual motor according to heads. Not sure where they came from (just made up).<br><br>i.e. <br>G13BDOHC - G13K<br>G13BSOHC 16valve - G13BB<br>G13BSOHC 8 valve - G13BA<br> <br>Are there actually Swifts with a stamped block that says G13A on it?<br><br> <p>-Kyle Jones <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.angelfire.com/de/ksj/myswift.html"><br><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong> Junk-Yard Turbo set-up, formerly NOS-fed, constantly evolving 1989 Suzuki Swift GTi</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br></a><!--EZCODE LINK END--><br></p><i></i>
