all these needs their approval too and have to get their approval serial number

Well get their approval and replace the bottom end. Surely they would consider a 200cc upgrade??


The problem is that they will not approve of anything that is different from stock, original manufacturer's specs. They only approve of same engine type, same block, same cc. Anything differs from the maunfacturer's specs is considered illegal and the penaltly charges is very high if caught. And even for the same stock engine to be approved, you will need to pay for all the charges and sent your engine for inspection before it is considered legal on the road. therefore we end up paying lots of money for these legal fees just to swop a stock G13B engine legally.

:(


hi... i'm also frm s'pore.. are u driving a GTi too?

is the LTA really that strict....? i mean they won't actually take apart ur engine n measure ur cylinder bores and stuff right.. so an overbore shouldn't be a prob. :wink:

but even if swap to a G16A bottom.. the engine will only sit about 30mm (?) higher? they shouldn't notice it...

don't know if the seriel numbers can be made to look exactly the same though.


Hey pal, welcome to teamswift! yup me driving GTi too.
shhh.. ya, overbore not that attention catching. But the walls gets thinner sacrificing reliability of the engine.
if using 1.6L it's very easy to tell although only 30mm higher. I had seen few of them with it very easy to differentiate. the engine sits high up and the block and gearbox has a height difference dun flush nicely.
If LTA suspect u cheat cc then they will do it.

The penalty if caught very high. Car confiscated and court case. the fines quite heavy. I know of a guy using 1.8L B18C5 in his EG6. got to scrap car and fine $20-30k for cheating Govt Rd tax and insurance.

Not worth the risk..


arg.... that's scary................
is there no other way to make this thing more punchy legally?
begining to feel this swiftie is alittle underpowered... for that size and weight, the engine should have been at least a 1.5L

heard that turbocharge it only get about $800 fine...
still can afford that... :lol:

what about a street engine and an inspection engine?

when i was in military.
one of the guys from california had a 500+CI big block 68 chevelle pro street drag car
once a year he and his dad would pull the big engine and install a 307 CI with a 2 BBL carb then get the car its anual inspection.
then go home and reinstall the big block for another 11 1/2 months

yes , you can do that but if the traffic police suspect you of illegal modifications , they will stop you on the spot and escort you back to their inspection centres immediately. If that is the case, GAME OVER....
Recently over here there are many cars who swopped engine to bigger cc had been caught some while driving on the road, and some others who were more unlucky were being complain by teh public to the traffic police. These police will ambush you at your house and once you start your engine, they will all zoom in over to catch you. Not worth the big risk these days.. :(

Here's a mod nobody will see...

http://www.somender-singh.com

More torque in low RPMs, cleaner emissions, and better fuel economy. At least that is what is claimed!

I'm just not buying it.
I do hope to set up an engine dynamometer in my garage some day and test out each and every performance trick in the book on some cheap and easily available engine, and a low powered one at that to keep the fuel consumption down. A 200hp engine consumes around 70 liters of fuel per hour at full throttle.
