The options i am considering are:

K10B: 998 cc (60.9 cu in) DOHC 12-valve VVT from the Wagon R

K10A: 996 cc (60.8 cu in) (68.0 x 68.6 mm) DOHC 16-valve, later with VVT and available with turbocharging. - The K10A has variable inlet cam timing and an 8.4:1 static compression ratio. Maximum output of the turbo version is 74 kW at 6,500 rpm and 122 Nm at 3,000 rpm. In naturally aspirated form it produces (70 PS). From the New Alto.

F10A: 1.0 L (970 cc/59 cu in, 65.5 x 72.0 mm) from the Maruti 1000.

F10D: 1.1 L (1,061 cc, 68.5 x 72.0 mm). This is a four-cylinder version of the 796 cc F8D.

G10B: was an all aluminium engine debuted in Maruti Zen in India in 1993. It was a 4 cylinder 993cc (72mm X 61mm) SOHC 16-valve engine and is the first all-aluminum engine Suzuki made for the Indian market. It was sold in both carburetted and MPFI form. It was widely used in motorsport in India due to its light weight and tunability. The mounting points of the engine block were similar to that of the G13 and so an engine swap was a relatively easy task. It was phased out when production of Zen ceased in 2006. It was made only in India but was sold in all countries the Zen was sold.

Any know-how from guys who have already done successful swaps will be appreciated!

Initial questions are:

Where to buy the engine from?
Which one would work best?
How much to pay for one?
Who can do a real good swap in Bangalore or Chennai?

I was planing for an alto engine. But new A-star engine is also in the option list.

Engine! you can buy from Kabadi who buys total loss cars from Insurance company. We have a good place in Ahmedabad.

Cost depends, For Eg: i missed a toppled Alto k10 for 85k. The whole car, the owner was not interested in repairing it. I gave a quote for 60k and someone took it for 85k.

Ofcourse those are Motor City of India. Its in places like us we have to do ourself.

PS: A member from Delhi (i think Noidaboy) had installed an Esteem engine in Type I. You can ask him for more details

K10A if you can source it then nothing like it (Not sure of the physical size or if it would fit under the hood without extending).

From local market:
K10B (not sure if it would fit under the hood, Alto's engine bay had to be extended to make K10)
F10D (might fit with minimal mods)
G10 (not sure if it would fit under the hood without cutting into the bodywork).

F10A is anaemic... better to turbocharge the F8D

All the best with this. And make it a point to get every stage on camera. I have about 4 albums of my Jeep rebuild.

While applying primer go for a zinc primer, would give better rust prevention.

Get those seats padded real nice, otherwise on long drives it could be bad for your back. Wrap the seats with good quality material. Should look as if it came from the factory like that. Get seat belts fitted.

Don't leave the rear seats, do it up good. I had a plan for my car that was to fit two independent seats like in the front. Will look into it when i'm geting it done. Anyways i don't want to carry more than four people in my car. Rear seatbelts, can it be done?

Try to get dynamat or similar material and install it. It should give good sound absorption of suspension and road noise. Ill be doing it for my car. Don't like rattling noises.

New model's front windscreen wiper assembly can be fitted with lil modification, ask your mechanic if he can do it. Stock windscreen wipers are not upto the mark.

While at it, get your whole wiring checked. If any splicing& insulation tape job has been done anywhere this is the chance to get it done correctly using connectors. I hate splicing and tapes - my car has it :(

Does it have central locking/security? If you need get it done now, i have a autocop basic setup. It's convenient.

Steering wheel & gear knob. Match it with seats & interiors.

Make provision for left side door mirrors. If you need em.

I'll put down more ideas & suggestions as i get em. Happy rebuilding!! Keep us posted!!
First of all congrats to Edmund on the fabulous restoration of your steed. I'm planning a complete, inside- out restoration of our 28 year old 800. Planning on installing light weight seats, new interior panels, a more comfortable suspension setup, alloy rims, new paint job and new engine if possible, just like how Edmund did. However the problem is that the car is in Trivandrum, Kerala and I don't know anyone who undertakes such jobs there! Was thinking of taking her to Kochi but I doubt she'll last the distance. Should I take her to a Maruti service center for the job? She has been worked upon by some local mechanics and that has left her in a sorry state for years now. It would be a huge help if anyone could point out to me a good workshop for the job in Kerala, preferably in Trivandrum. Any advice on where to start? The car is of great sentimental value to us. Want her looking and running like brand new. Please send in your valuable suggestions. Thanks in advance guys.
