Suzuki?? How's that possible? Optra's Daewoo, and GM's marketing it under Chevy's brand, na...unless GM took over Suzuki..

And oh, that 1.8 DOHC powerplant- Not Jap.

Google kar na. It's the Suzuki Forenza, or it used to be.

Yes, I know it's a Holden plant, and it's not made anymore. And chances are if you're boring it out and lowering compression, you will find aftermarket conrods and pistons from some other brand which may just fit the Optra, though they are manufactured as OE/aftermarket for another car.

I think SRT-4 injectors are high impedance and the same shape of the Optra.

GM used to own 17.6% of Suzuki. They sold that stake for $2 billion last year.
