Hi there, I am new to this forum, but it looks like maybe someone here might be able to have some info for me.<br><br>here goes<br><br>I am the proud owner of a 1987 chevrolet<suzuki> sprint<swift> and i was wondering if it is possible to cram a 1.6l gti in there, because the little carbureted 3banger SUCKS! i get no power, not to mention its about dead anyway, and if im going to put a new engine in it, i want to make a little monster out of her.. <br><br>anyhooo, anyone who has ever heard of enyone doing this or knows if its possible drop me a line, i would also like to know if i could put the 4wheel disc from the gti swift on it too.<br><br>heres a pic, shes definitely a beater right now, but the body is straight and the suspension is sound, its just got 197k miles on the engine so shes a little tired... to the tune of 1 quart of oil every 150 miles.... anyway any info would be NICE <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START ;) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/wink.gif ALT=";)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br><br><!--EZCODE IMAGE START--><img src="http://www.users.uswest.net/~mrmoogly/87sprint.jpg"><!--EZCODE IMAGE END--> <br> <p></p><i></i>

Engine... why not???<br><br>I've got a Swift '87 GTi with g13b engine and it works very well, so it should work with 1.6. But this car weights about 700kg, and 1.6 is heavier... You should also think about gearbox from gti.<br>And about brakes... I'll have to consult my father, and find mk2 or mk3 gti to compare, because I've only a hungarian glx 1.3 ohc '96 swift. It's about 50% chance to do it, but when I cheked the braking force, it was over 110% (with one person onboard), so it's very good til you mount 195 tyres.<br><br>Drive fast & prosper.<br> <p></p><i></i>

You can put the 1.6 in, better use the carb version. You'll also need the transmission. You may be able to fit the larger front discs from a GTi but I don't think you can fit the rears.<br>Be aware that the 1.6 sohc 16V head tends to crack above 75,000 miles.<br><br>Iain <p></p><i></i>

<br><br>Merry Christmas Oscar!<br><br>(got your message but your server sent mine back as you supposed)<br><br>I don't know Oscar, I think it should do, but I've never had a chance to measure one. My mother now has a 1.3 Wagon R, I think it's the same engine so I'll try and measure it next weekend.<br><br>Iain <p></p><i></i>
