Default Swift Mods- Baleno Engine or Swift Gti

Hello brothers,

One of my friend wants to Mod his Swift, hes plannin an engine swap. The call is between a Swift Gti engine and a Baleno Engine, which one do you think is the better off/powerful option? how good are the Gti Engines?will they need a complete rebuild?

Also, what is the approx cost of
1. Gti Engine
2. Baleno Engine
Along with wiring harness ECM excluding the gearbox.

Any sources for the engine will be of great help.

If power is what you are looking at then get the GTi engine. The Baleno engine aint bad either and can be tuned to quite a good level but IMO get the GTi engine.

You don't get any brand new GTi engines, cy. Lol.

Balram, depends on turbo/NA, and whether you want a fast ride or to race. If you want to race, Esteem overbore or Baleno. Fast ride, G15 Cultus. Turbo, you will have to mix and match.

Lots of variables. If you decide on application, you can narrow it down.

A lot will also depend on fast or how fast and how much do you want to spend ?
Do you homework religiously and trust me the homework will take at least a couple of months.

Looking for a fast ride, I know the racing rulez bad isnt it. Is the G15 Cultus available? what would be the approx cost?any sources/tuners???not really loooking at a turbo at this point-over budget.

any sources for Gti engine??I agree, we dont get new engines, definately have to go in for a complete rebuild. Can aybody give some rough estimates?

Budget for this project is also not too high. want to finish it as low as it can

Guys, is it possible to change the head of the indian swift to the DOHC head, which came with the swift GTi, sold in the US?

The engine block should be the same, as both are g13's, so the GTi head should be a direct fit on the indian swift.

Here are some basic specs of the GTi engine-
Engine:

1.3L 1298cc(79.2.cu in) 16valve DOHC
Type G13B
No. of Cylinders 4
Bore 74.0 (2.91)
Stroke 75.5 (2.97)
Pistion Displacement 1298cc (79.2 cu.in)
Compresion Ratio 10:1
100HP @ 6500RPM
83 lb-ft of tourque @ 5000 RPM
EMPFI (Electronic Multipoint Fuel Injection)
Redline 6800RPM (depends on model)



Acceleration:

0-30 MPH - 2.6 Secs
0-40 MPH - 4.5 Secs
0-50 MPH - 6.3 Secs
0-60 MPH - 8.3 Secs
0-70 MPH - 11.5 Secs
0-80 MPH - 14.6 Secs
1/4 Mile time - 16.6 @ 84.7mph

Engine:
There's a zen here Which is said to be running an esteem bottom end and a Twin cam head,and knowing the person, it should be true. so i guess its possible on the swift too.

WOW! need to check it out next time i come to Cochin.
So it can be done, but is a lot of modification needed to do the same?
If no, i think it will be the best way to get more power out of the swift.
A ported and polished twin cam head can give around 16bhp more than the stock GTi head ( Stage I Cylinder Head Suzuki Swift Racing Parts - Performance Parts by Suzuki Racing Development ) Thats a total of around 116 bhp!
