It's a difficult swap. (1)The D16 has larger main journals. That must be corrected by either Line-boring the block, or grinding the crank to a smaller size...probably best to do the block.
(2)The D16 has the thrust surface on the center main, rather than #4 of the suzuki...that calls for some creative rework to correct. I used thrust bearings on the center main cap, with a girdle to hold the cap against deflection.(3) the D16 crank has the oil holes in the rod journal on the wrong side for the rotation of the crank...again, needs a creative rework. I welded and redrilled mine...but it's not simple work.(4) the crank flange is the wrong size for the rear main seal, as well as for flywheel fit. I welded my original D16 flywheel mounting holes closed, then machined and ground the flange to match the Suzuki one, redrilled...huge work.

You have to start with the proper D16 crank, so that some simple machining on the front will get your oil pump and balancer/pulley in place correctly. Then use aftermarket Honda rods, and the piston of your choice. I used Honda JE pistons, and H-beam rods.

Have deep pockets when you see your machinist!

this should clear up most of the questions that ppl will ask regarding what im starting wt.
my intention is to start off wt the g15 SOHC head and at a later time fully work the g15 bottom half and installing, unless i find it feasible 2 go j20, thats another topic all together.
existing is a carb SOHC 8 valve g13ba

im presently undergoing intensive restoration work because i had a fender bender (i wasnt driving) and it had a couple spots. now back to the topic.
ive heard of the crank swap, if it can work it would provide me wt a stronger bottom end where i can make even more boosted power. so if anybody have info, pls, id really appreciate it.
if posting it publicly is an issue, a personal message is fine. if i get it working, i dont mind making a full documentation wt lots of pics. thanks, claude B.
