Hey guys, my first post here :)

i own a 1995 suzuki swift 1.3l sohc(give to me for free *score*) it's in great cond.

the sohc just dont have enuff *unff* so to speak so i was considering the SOHC -> DOHC engine swap! what do i need besides the engine?

As i'm not a mechanic is it worth getting a shop to install it even tho it's $$$ it'll be done corectly(i hope!)

cheers

engine, wiring harness and ecu is a must. Axles, brakes, suspension and GTi tranny wouldn't hurt either

take a look at this http://www.redlinegti.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4519

also no it wont matter what year gti it is from, probably better to get a hold of a cultus half cut.

doesn't matter which year, however if you get your parts from a 92+ donor car, the wiring harness will be easier to sort out easier. aside from the "engine, wiring harness and ecu" i would also grab the instrument cluster so you can have the tach, all the other parts like the tranny, brakes, suspension, etc are just goodies, nice to have, but not required.
i can't believe that thread on redlinegti, estimating up to $9k, LoL .. that's about what a gti cost new.

it actually goes on to correct that price to a more respectable figure of $5000AUD, still alot of money to pay. could sell the sohc, and get a gti with the $5000 ontop of the money from the sohc.
