Literally, I just joined to post on this thread and to express how much this topic even offends me. Let alone everyone else that has a soul. Its a slap in the face and probably sacrilegious to even consider and/or think of a way to put anything honda into one of these cars. Please delete this thread so noone finds out, then you have a bunch of honda "enthusiasts" swapping motors into metros or swift alike because the general population made civics too expensive to buy anymore.

B18 swap in a swift has been done, here in BC.
requires some major changes to frame in engine bay for mounts and drive train clearances.
car ran low 14's in the qtr turbo charged, stock engine.
megasquirt management because you have to have it to run it.
It has blown 2 engines and currently sits in a driveway.
The CV shaft were custum welded, and run at such an angle the boots wear out at 5000 kms.

Dropping in a G13b Modified will be way easier and way better, and its all turning wrenches mostly.

The thing is these cars of ours are no longer made, they are getting harder to find every day.
take the Verts and T3's for example, the last vert made was 93 I believe.
T3's were made from 85 to 91, with the 89 -91 only sold in Canada.
unless you have a basket case car, you want to play around with that was destined for the crusher.
then play away with it.
But you need a lot of money and time plus knowhow to do a swap like a B18 or whatever turns your crank.

But most of us here on this site are "Cranked by Suzuki", and we like it that way.

I for one appreciate hard work and ingenuity, included what has been put into some Honda's I have seen.
Drop a Suzuki into a honda, and post on their sites, you gonna get burned just as bad as here.

You need to get off the acid. That ain't no lowly suzuki motor there.

230hp on a NA b16 is deff possible, hell Church automotive had a b20vtec that had 263 at the wheels NA. Bisimoto has a F series single cam that makes 400 NA. But for one, you didnt have any spoon b16 motor, and if you made 230hp with it and only ran a 10.06 you need to be shot. Thats slow as balls, a stock b16 in a rex will run faster than that.

That's OK. My little G13B beat a 1997 Integra GS-R at our last auto-x. I dyno'd 90hp/80tq at the front wheels. HE dyno'd 156hp/140tq at the wheels. Same dyno. Same day.

It ain't about the v-tacky.

when it comes to auto-x power has very little role in it.

i was always being closely challenged by a JCW mini in my old VR4 and i had over double the power.

beat a C5 z06 in my stock maxima too. i had about half the power :)
