Hi guys.
I just bought a suzuki swift gs with 1.3 sohc 8v engine. Do you guys have any idea where I can get performance part for these engine? I've been searching online and all I can find is only performance part for gti engine/16v sohc/samurai engine. So if you guys have any site or store that ships worldwide (since I'm in Brunei) please share it.

Another question is, can the Suzuki Samurai parts fit into my G13B 8V SOHC engine? By looking at pictures, both engine is quite the same.

Sorry if I posted this in wrong section. I'm new im this site. Thanks in advance.

I used to have a swift just like yours. What year is it? Years 1989 through 1994 had the G13BA engine, the G13B is the 16V Gti engine. They use the same block (G13B stamped on it), hence the confusions over the years.
There where different Samurais made. Pre-1989 models had the G13A engine, 1989+ models had the G13BA engine.
Performance wise I wouldn't recommend spending money on the car. An engine swap is the easiest and fastest way of gaining reliable power. If you want to upgrade your current engine, good luck, but you won't find parts easily and it won't be really cost-benefit effective. My 2 cents...

Post pictures of you car :wink:
