I will soon have blocks modified with extra springs for the high boost cars. Any takers?

And for whoever it was that was asking if they fit the auto gearbox, they will work no problem at all as the diff is the same.

I think this was tried before but I had to find out for myself. Availability of the Suzuki Sport LSD:

Dear Mr. Tony Powell

Thank you for your e-mail.

I am very sorry, we have finished production of Swift's parts
long time ago and we also don't have any left.
I am afraid I don't know any company who has our parts
in stock for Swift.

I am very sorry for not able to help you on this matter.

Thank you from Japan,

I know the feeling.

I find one in Japan auction 2 weeks ago.
I finally got it and it looks nice and it was very cheap too.
I think I got it for $400 US.

I also got Suzuki sports cam shaft.

I'm waiting for that to arrive from Japan.
It helps if you can speak Jap or been Jap, like myself :lol: .

Same guy who I bought cam from had a Suzuki sports ECU...
might be still for sale :wink: .
Just because I didn't want it due to Yamaha R1 carbs....
Keep eye out, there is one with close ratio and LSD at the moment.


Cheers
Atchi

Havent read this whole topic, but the phantom grip is a big waste of time. I had the strongest springs offered, green, installed and can see no noticeable difference. My friend also road races a swift, with near stock hp, and when he switched from the phantom to the gripper out of the UK he dropped his lap times dramatically and now runs up front in the top three every time.
In my road race swift with the phantom I spin the inside front all the way around third gear corners, and I make stock hp.

zooracers A real LSD would be better for road racing. Becouse of the weight transfer in corners. The Phantom grip does cut lose a more. But as far as drag. The Phantom grip is fine. I run one.

Hi ppl,

I spoke with Suzuki Sports in Japan.
I managed to get hold of LSD parts no.
It is 4EI36-B11 and this is 1.5way system.
They are all sold out and no more in pipe line.
So, you can buy what there are in the world.
They are getting rare as we speak.... :cry: .

I hope it helped some of you.

Cheers
Atchi

MOD EDIT: added keywords to make this post easier to search for, also +2 Karma for part number!

I haven't seen this posted here yet, but SuzukiRD.com has an LSD, although it seems horribly overpriced.

suzuki rd have alot of things that are over priced and some ridiculous claims made ont he site. i recommend viewing their "junkyard swift" turbo conversion video.

I make about 20-25 more hp at the wheels in 4th gear, and my gear box has had about 7 K thrown at it to hold it ... and the lsd shot the pin out the side of the gear box anyway... none the less another swift user over here in aus recommended a melbourne manufacturer to see what they could do.

i'll post with the update when they return the unit to me.

James

I presume you are referring to Modena Engineering in Melbourne, that is where myself and many others here in Australia have bought our LSD's from. They are a torsen lsd that fit into the stock gti gearboxes.

http://www.modenaengineering.com.au

We have never had a problem with these LSD's, my car has about 110hp atw and i have launched at 8000rpm a number of times at the drags no problems, my friends car has 150kw turbo with stock gti box he hasnt had any probs for a few yrs with the lsd, there are two other turbo gtis with a similar setup and they both love the lsd, there are some race car gti's here in Aus too that are using these lsd's and they love them as much as i do.. they are pretty much unbreakable as far as i know..

talk to frank at modena if you have any qn's

Any info on what a lsd from Modena costs? Looks like they're a top notch outfit.

So has anyone tried to fit one of the Samurai LSD's into a Swift? Probalby not even close, but calmini has them for about $500. I sent them an email and I'll let you guys know what they say.
Does anyone happen to have measurements of the swift diff carrier?

Well, they emailed me back and said the Samurai diff does not fit in the Swift housing. They used to have one, but no longer carry it.
Bummer...

Well I've been running my daily driver Gti with a suzuki sport LSD for roughly 2 weeks now. It totally changes the dynamics of how the car handles around corners, or any turning in general. At first I though I might have to get a power steering kit to easy the handling, as it really pulls and grips into a corner, but you learn to get used to it. Probably the most noticeable change I've noticed is when you are exiting a corner, it really rips the wheels straight at low speeds, moving the steering wheel violently. Taking a corner at a higher speed is a lot better, with a lot more control. Haven't driven in the wet yet, been told to take it careful!

Ok we have been hunting for a LSD for a MK1 and right now we have a few leads for one that should bolt into the MK1 transmission.

So here is the question do all the MK1 variants use the same transmission?

I called and spoke to Cusco and they said they will make the LSD listed Cultus AA33S so I've been researching trying to confirm that all the MK1s use the same transmission note the .pdf lists the G13B


http://www.cusco.co.jp/pdf/P204-205.pdf

Thoughts?

Looks like I found the answer on this post that the axels are 1mm larger for the g13b.... Splines larger? I'm asking Dattmann
