Hello, recently whilst searching for options on increasing the power in my Subaru Justy/Mk3 Suzuki Swift I found a manifold and turbo set for a G13B Suzuki Swift Gti engine, I was just curious does the 16V manifold fit the 8v engines if not anyone have any idea where I can find 8v turbo kits or even if they exist.

Thanks

Billy :alien:

If you get the chance to go over to RedlineGTi.com .. the person you are wanting to contact is 'haylingmini'. Jerry is a master with AWD Swifts (and Justy) as well as the different motors that go with all of them. His work is incredible and last heard was completely restoring one of Monsters original AWD GTi's back to full race condition.

He is in Hampshire UK so closer than most others to you as well.

Are you sure you have an 8v?, with the age of yours I would expect it to be a 16v sohc and not a 8v sohc.

I'm sure mine has a singular cam pulley, did they do a 16v sohc in the UK?
