Hi Vikram, I may be wrong but I thought Gypsy had an electronic ignition system which does not require a distributor and coil set up, the spark puk works from and electronic ignition module - which is a rectangular box connected to the spark plugs. Or is this aslo called a distributor?

Cheers

Ankit, MPFI vehicles with Electronic Ignitions may or may not require a distributor. In my car(2004 Esteem MPFi), the ECU has no control over the ignition and one can advance/retard the ignition timing. However, in Suzuki cars like Baleno and Swift, the ignition timing is static and one cannot change the ignition timing unless they go in for a Piggy back or Stand alone ECU like Race Dynamics, Haltec etc. A distributorless setup does not have the regular type of Ignition Coil. My previous post has more info on this.

Could you please ask him whats involved in this conversion apart from a swap of head and electrical\electronics? The MPFi head is 16 valve while the carb head is 8 valve. I have heard that pistons also need to be changed if one wants to retain the original 8 valve g13b's block.

Congrats Calrock!

Beautiful vehicle... Looks like Maruti IS giving clear lenses on the front headlamps.

Why are the people with you all dressed in the same uniform?

That's a great 4x4 you have there my friend. A reliable off-roader that will take you places and not let you down. Enjoy the Gypsy my friend.

Looks like a renewed interest in buying new Gypsies these days -- and that should only increase IF the MUL & their dealers take some interest in selling it .

The Gypsy is a no nonsense and no problem vehicle.

Hoping to see a Mangalore OTR thread soon

Default Congratulations!

Calrock,
congratulations!! It is enthusiasts like you who keep the vehicle production alive! You have got a modern classic in your hands. Gypsy which seemed to be overpriced compared to Mahindra counter part some time back suddenly becomes the only choice that can be registered in city with BS 3 engine under 6 lakh bracket and is as affordable as any other basic 4wd available in indian market. Preserve this piece. It is a really neat looking vehicle and the new MPFi engine must be a blast on and off road!

please do give your detailed ownership report soon
