Im planning on building my g10 in my 92 metro lsi. Dont know much but want to do it. Any advice other than motor swap? Any sites or forums? I cant find parts like a decent turbo manifold and some others. Also looking to buy parts. Can provide email address if needed. Thanks

okay, we talking little more power or lots?
if lots, things youll need: (from what iv gathered on this forum)
g13b rods (stronger)
bigger fuel pump (more power, more fuel)
stronger clutch
ECU (either chipped, or piggyback, or stand alone)

i hear great things about suzuki vitara pistions. the aluminum is heat treated (IIRC, not tempered, but better than cast)
for that i think u need to bore out the iron sleeves.

at some point you'll start destroying transmissions.
either drive nice, or buy more transmission, or make the first geo metro dog box tranny.

ECU/ fueling will be you biggest hurdle. check out megasquirt. huge use base, everything from a 200 system fuel only, to a complete ECM replacment. (fuel, ignition, transmission? nitrous, rad fan, pretty much everything to replace a mostly modern ECU)

again, my .02. im still working on getting my car running like new, stock :)
