@sekardhana: Anything is possible if you have the money and access to garage, will it be a straight fit dont think so, mostly since mounting points will be different. Probability that gear box and clutch also needs swap, in which case it makes sense to buy a new car instead of swap job.

I think that now Maurti will not be bringing in the M series any more. They will rather now concentrate more on bringing in the K-series motors. The 1242 cc K series 1.2 will be coming in Splash with the capacity reduced to below 1200cc for tax concessions.
And the larger version of K-series will be mostly coming in the new cars. If the news and internet grapewine are to be believed, the new Swift is coming in 2010. Now for such a time period, I dont think that Maruti will be coming up with 1.3 ltr M series motor or 1.5 motor. Many changes including the enigne mounts will have to be done in Swift to accomodate the M series. May be we will have a 1.2 high tune version of K-series from Splash to reduce the cost of engine ( through economies of scale ) and for this maurti may consider making some changes in Swift.

But as of now, there is no concrete information available that Swift is getting the M series motors.

If major Swift upgrade is due in 2010 then the engine change at that time makes perfect sense. In any case E-IV also comes in next year. I am not sure whether the existing engine can be modified to meet E-IV.

If they can modify m800 engine during all these years , why can't they do the same for swift enigne. ? Basically we in india have to always use lower capacity / old engine.

Giving the new engine which also shares the 3 cylinder with the a star would give better economies of scale as the ritz would also come with the 1.2 litre engine.Later the engine of the wagon r,estilo and the alto would also be replaced with the coming of the new emission norms.Also keeping in mind the excise advantage for the swift which would make it even more cheaper.

MS haver just announced that they will stop selling M800 in 18(?) cities next year. These are going E-IV. Saw it at lunchtime on the box.
