Find a donor and put the 1.3 DOHC into your metro.

It's not just the displacement increase.

You would get higher compression, another camshaft, 2 more valves per cylinder and a better flowing head. Not to mention a better platform for aftermarket parts. Plus, it is a relatively simple and documented swap.

And I think that is a good price for engine/wiring and the computer, and a great price if it includes trans/axles/hubs(you don't have to have the latter, but G13B's eat GT trannies....)

Your geo trans will bolt up fine, it's just not as strong as the Gt stuff. I just wasn't sure if the swap stuff that you found came with the stronger Gt trans and axles. Buy the engine / wiring, and look for a Gt trans/axles down the road or whenever you break the geo stuff.

Just don't go around dumping the clutch and doing burnouts all over the place like retard and you should be fine.
