 Post subject: How to Carb a 16v?
PostPosted: Tue Sep 10, 2002 12:07 am 
If I were to buy a G13B without ECU to transplant into a 1985 1.3L (SOHC) swift, am I correct in assuming that all I need is<br> 1. A distributor<br> 2. A low pressure electric fuel pump <br> 3. 2 dual throat motorbike carbs<br> 4. Rubber bubing which fits carbs and <br> manifold.<br> 5. Some kind of bracket to support carbs<br> and linkages?<br><br>Any advice on what make of bike carbs are suitable for this engine for everyday use?<br><br>Thanks heaps<br><br>Ozzie<br> <p></p><i></i>

Have you considered tracking down an ECU and an EFI pump, etc? Just as a comparison in price. Are you in West Oz? <p></p><i></i>

Hi, not as yet ,I'm trying to find my best options. I'll be looking for a cheap complete engine to rebuild first. If I can get all the bits I might just leave it as EFI. It seems like the rewiring is a lot of work.<br>Yes I'm in west oz.<br><br>Cheers<br> <p></p><i></i>

I have an ECU from a MK1.....major difference being it doesn't run timing like the later ones....less wiring too. <p></p><i></i>

Mk1 ECU??? Is it interchargeable with Mk2 ECU???<br>I've got Mk1 swift and I'm looking to install eg. Tom's chip (not for mk1). I think that MAF is the same but mounted in TB, solenoid valves are similar (two of them) - only distributor has a kind of vacuum steering (and of course ECU controlls it also), I'm using mk2 fuel rail and head (only head has different camshaft followers). O2 sensor is installed also (waiting for A/F gauge). Of course ECU sockets are looking the same (on wiring diagram) and sensor connection also looks same...<br>One of the best european chiptuners told me to swap them for a while and to check if they work, but it's hard to find a mk2 ecu (I've to order it), while I don't know anybody with mk2 swift (and any workshop to lend or something). So that man told me that it can't be broken (!) by connecting to similar car and even to another different one!<br>So I need to know...<br> <p></p><i></i>

The Mk2 ECU controls timing....you'd need a Mk2 ignition setup as well or the computer would keep seeing faults. The Mk1 Distributor is a standalone setup.<br><br>I THINK that Fueltronics here in Australia does a Mk1 chip - I'm lucky enough to have a factory hipo Mk1 computer. But, having said that, if your engine is stock then don't waste your time with a chip. <p></p><i></i>
