Entire Suzuki range except M800 (which is 2) = 4 "/"

Well the engine bay is definitely of a palio. The circled portion in the pic confirms it. I dont know about his claims but I am definitely going to see this car

All this suggest that is highlighted in Red suggests that this engine is certainly not the Palio 1.6 engine that I have in my car:

you are absolutely right. The car is a palio (may be 1.2 or 1.6) but the engine (at least the whole of it) is neither a FIRE 1.2 or a 1.6 . This is what is making me more and more curious. I want to know if the guys knows what he has done to the car or he doesnt know jack sh*t about engines or he is yet another faker.

Hmm that isn't possible. I don't see any Palio 1.6 bits around. Can you?
to me it looks very little like a palio engine bay - not a fiat engine. The strut and the oil dip looks similar - but from the picture - also the 1.6 never came in the moon mist grey (that can also be a photographic error).

gwad - what a

Look at the curve of the engine bay - palios straight - and where is the radiator?
