Default Swift: Engine Swap Options.

You dont see me here often, but anyways....

I am posting this on behalf of a friend. He has a 08 Suzuki Swift, which has covered a few thousand kms.

Current Mods:
Custom Made Free Flow and Endcan
17 inch Oz Superlegerras
MAD sounding Audio!

Now, Money is no object here, and he doesnt want a Turbo...YET!

What he wants is very Simple. He wants:
Suzuki Swift Sport 1.6 Twin Cam VVT Enhine
A Stage 2/3 Clutchmasters Clutch
All Round Discs, Ventilated.
A Full suspension Setup.
A Swift Sport Body Kit.
Swift GT Spoiler
Carbon Fibre Hood

I have asked a couple of people, and the engine seems to be the difficult part. Also, I have been offered Front Disks, but not rear disks.

Please Do give me info on all the above.

Is there a full fleged Swift Sport Conversion in India running on a 1.6 VVT engine?

I have heard of a 1.6VVT conversion SX4 in bombay. Any Details on that car?

you can import complete drivetrain with engine and brakes front and back, incuding wiring and ecm. look at this as it will be cost effective.

swifts sold in dubai are 1.6 ltr. and i think there might be a sports edition too. i will check about it and come back to post some info.

the best will be to import an used engine from a total loss swift from dubai. i dont know if it can be done or not!

People import engines as scrap (for steel mills) you could get one of those engines you require.

However changing the notation in the RC book will be a major pain. Again, even insurance cover will be compromised if the car post modifications is involved in an accident.

Ask Viper/Ford Rocam as they have made modifications which your friend intends to do.

The upgrading of the engine and powertrain is the easy part, the tougher part is complying with car registration laws and insurance headaches (engine number is changed, and certain insurance clauses are breached)

Cheers

anyone with experience knows if 1.6 (or the one from local SX4) will require engine mounts to be modified , or how tough it will be.

In other countries Swift already comes with M16 1.6 engine.....
