If I am correct the G16A and G16B blocks are the same or most of it anyway.<br>The First comes from the Swift and the other from the Baleno.<br>The real differences are in the head actually.(single - multi point injection)<br>Anyway people tend to use G16A blocks.<br>I really dont know why. <p></p><i></i>

I´m not sure but i read in this board that the G16B had more stong end, so is better to rev and turbo mods!<br><br>I don´t know if it´s true but... <p>Gonçalo M.<Br><Br><img src="http://www.rallymundo.homestead.com/files/1_2.gif" border="0"><Br><img src="http://www.rallymundo.homestead.com/files/GTI.gif" border="0"></p><i></i>

I also have ear that to. I know the G16A has a cast crankshaft that is the weak part of the engine. Not sure if the G16B has a cast crankshaft or a forged one like the G13B. Will be good to know so if anyone know this please tell us.<br><br>Bolivar <p></p><i></i>

it could be that the A or B differentiates a single cam from a twin cam...... maybe.... dunno

I was thinking the same thing. If that's the case, it would have different pistons with different valve cut-outs too.

No twin cam g16 ever from factory just custom g16/g13b hybrids with the g13b head.

sumone correct me if i'm wrong ... but i think the G16A comes from the Baleno & the G16B comes from the Swift Sedan... i also hear (not sure how true this is) that the Baleno bottom half has lighter components...

Nope, my swift has a G16A, so the A or B must stand for something else

Suzuki Escudo/Vitara/Sidekick also came with the G16A......the escudo G16A has the intake piping crossing the exhaust manifold unlike the ones from the Swift/Baleno 1.6

Hi guys, i think some swift sedans had G16A and some had G16B engines, and thay are all SOHC as standard. Is the difference maybe one is fuel injection and one has a carb. Im unsure but would be interested to find out more if anyone knows...

I am wondering the same thing... :roll:

Friend of mine told me that I need to get G16B from the Vitara to make a conversion, and in my country, we don't have much Vitaras...


So, U can use G16B or G16A to make a 1.6 GTi conversion...?
Wich is better, if there is any difference...?

the basic difference is that g16a has a cast iron block

while g16b has aluminium block

that is why g16b is a bit faster then g16a but for force induction and overboosting g16a is a perfect piece to play with

...But basicly, it's the same if I will put G16A or B instead G13B...?

So U suggest that is better to put G16A...?

...Sure it's a better for me, cause in Croatia we have many of theese blocks, and many of them are in a good shape than a G16B wich can't be found so easily...

Well, I'm just looking to get some "cheap" HP, and I think this conversion would be the best thing to do, cause otherwise I would need to do lots of stuff to gain, let's say 20HP...

For now, I'm just informing myselfe how to do this conversion, and to get some valuable information on how to do this, but if I decide one day to do something like this, "normal" conversion will do just fine for me...
