I want to have the more powerfull atmospheric Swift I can get, I was thinking about a engine swap, but I know that a stock 1.6 can only reach 5500Rpm or so, I'll never get a beast out of that! I know that I can change the con rods and pistons.<br><br> 1-Can I reach more atmospheric power with my 1.3 or should I get a 1.6?<br> 2-How much can I over bore a 1.6l?<br> 3-Can I get a chip for a 1.6 or I'll need to have a custom one?<br> 4-Does it's better to swap the engine head cause in Canada we got DOHC 1.6l?<br> 5-Can I get a performance cam shaft? <p>Carl-Eric Dionne, 1990 Black SSGTi, Montreal Canada</p><i></i>

Ive done this conversion and am able to reach over 5500prm safely. Its not something I would do frequently , but ive had my 1.6ltr up to 8000rpm (when dragging) On the street I set the rev limiter to around 7500rpm....There is not much more power past this anyway.<br>If you want heaps of power & value for money I would have to say go for a big turbo! I chose todo the 1.3 to 1.6 conversion just for something different. For a nat asperated car running high 14's Im pretty happy with it.<br>This is the list of mods ive made to my 95 GTi.<br>- 1300 - 1600 conversion (Bored out to 1650) We could not go much further with the boring, mainly because we would have needed custom pistons to fit. Suzuki have oversize pistons that suited the amount we bored.<br>- Mikuni Quad Throttle Bodies (From Kawasaki ZZR1100)<br>- Mild Cam (Cosworth)<br>- Wolf 3D ECU<br><br>You can modify the existing chip to work with the conversion. But if you fork out a little extra your better off going for a completly new engine management system. I chose to go with Wolf3D.<br><br>Any more questions just email me suzuki_gti@hotmail.com .<br><br>CYA<br><br><br><br><br><br> <p></p><i></i>

nope, same weaker crank......................<br>but it dosen't mean the engine can't stand a little abuse, jejejejejejeje<br>i know a lot about the 1.6lt and it can withstand up to 22psi of boost after that the crank blows, but in my car ran very hard, meaning that in a swift, you would count with your fingers who gets to your side when running.....cause it does'nt weight a lot.................. <p></p><i></i>

<br>Does 1.3=>1.6 swap require lots work? I mean : does 1.6 just bolts-in, or some custom motor mounts should be made.<br>and what about 1.8? <br><br>if it's bolt-in i would think about putting 1.6 dohc, especially in BC (Canada) 1.6 Dohc easier to find (on scrap yard) and it's cheaper than 1.3 dohc. <p></p><i></i>
