Hey people,

Just a quick question, does anyone know where I can get a 1.6L DOHC engine from Suzuki and wether or not it can be TurboCharged? I want to turn my 1997 Swift into a sleeper, cause people always make fun of me for what i am driving, im gonna light a fire under their a$$ hopefully soon!

The 1.6 came out of the sedans, it's a 16 valve SOHC engine. If want a DOHC engine you'll have to make a hybrid with a GTi head.

When you say Sedans, do you know the name(s) of the cars? So if I call the Junk yard I might sound like I know what I am talking about when I tell them I am looking for a 1.6L.

Thanks Steve

It was the Swift sedan, but they were never available in the US, so you likely won't find one.

Were there ever any 1.6L offered in the US? If Not looks like I go for the 1.3 DOHC

Thanks Steve

Isn't it basically the same engine that was used in the 1.6 Vitaras and perhaps the Tracker variant?

Also the 1.6 doesn't have the forged internals like the DOHC G13B does.

As far as forged parts are concerned, its only the crank thats not forged in the 1.6, and a forged crank is not really that important, especially in small bore 4cylinders. Neither have forged pistons, but both have forged rods.
I forgot about the tracker/X90 motor. It is actually better than the sedan motor because it has the multiport fuel injection, and would probably work OK in a hatch.

None of the 1.6 motors have forged anything. The rods are VERY thin and have a HIGH ratio vs. the nice forged DOHC 1.3 motor..

For $4000Cnd you can build a bullet proof bottom end with forged internals and a custom crank....

There's no replacement for displacement ;)

if you really want a good 1.6L, just get a 4AGE 20V Black top engine from a toyota ae111.

i have used g16b from baleno with the head of gti i tuned up the crack with 57mm pistons better quality and with mecanicals valves with cams. i put the engine up to the car the left mounts it's ok but the muddle mount sems to turn the engine to the right. i have not put the gear box yet up. does anyone know if i am going to have problem with the mounts. i believe that i have to reconstruct the muddle mount. i am going to used the gearbox from 1.6 will that fit ok?

I think that the J18A engine fits into a swift, that's as big as you can go.
It puts out 99kW at 6,500rpm, with 157Nm of torque at 3,000rpm.

Such a misleading quote. In many cases you can destroke an engine, reduce it's displacement and make more power because you can rev higher.
Plus, whoever came up with that quote originally obviously didn't know forced induction.
Displacement is nothing without boost!

I have the 1.6 SOHC and it's a slow as hell :)

The X90 is just a Vitara/Tracker/Sidekick whatever with a different shell. Running gear and chassis are all the same.

I'm STILL yet to see a G16 running faster numbers than a G13B. Once someone does that, THEN and ONLY then will I believe a G16 or G16/G13B head hybrid is better. The J-series will not match up to the G-series box. The other thing you should consider, is the adding of yet MORE weight to the front of your FWD car. Great for a straightline...but

Is the G16 block the same ast the G13B Block?? And will the Gti head bolt right on with no issues?

more hp yes, but not as much torque. and torque is what makes you go down the road. how about this test, take a 1.0 l and turbo it (about 100 hp), i will take a 672 cdi and turbo it (about 2000 hp) and you tell me which displacement makes more power. even without forced induction bone stock it runs 720 hp. That's over 7 times more power then a "smaller turbo engine"

no matter what you do to a engine, the bigger it is the more power it will make! hence the saying no replacement for displacement. let me know if you want that dumbed down so you can understand it.
