I've recently purchased a 98 Metro non Lsi, and I want to do an engine swap which led me here. I did some searching around on here but I go to school for 12 hrs a day so I don't have that much time to look so!

The point: I see that 1.3 and 1.6 conversions are pretty typical. My question is what's the best one to go with? I don't know anything about suzuki engines. Some guidance please. Perhaps something even bigger?

if you dont have enough time to look , you really wont have enough time to do the swap!! :wink:

so the 1.3 would be the easiest. you could use your trans with new mounts and axles

why have I seen a lot around on here about the 1.3 heads on the 1.6 just not being overall as good as the whole 1.3?
