(((((I just finished putting the Jimny (new sierra replacement model) 1.3L EFI motor in. It had same block as the old sierra one, so it just bolted in, along with power steer.
It obviously has not got the same grunt as the 1.6L EFI motor but for ease of installation for a non mechanic like myself, i couldn't go past it. It certainly goes better than the old carby. Runs on all angles !!
This 1.3L EFI may be very similar to what i did.))))
the system we are talking about, is a multi-port injection. it is easy to install "plug and play". very user friendly, almost idiot proof, with self adjustment in all ranges inside the cab.
This type system has been used in other import applications with great success. it allows the use of modified engines, without the ill affect of the stock brain box (ECU). This system has provided more power in all applications. Due to it's more efficient method of fuel metering and quicker response.
We were looking for something that would work for our 1.3's and 1.6's, so we went to the leading manufacture of aftermarket multi port injection systems for small engines, and had them make a control box "exclusive" for use at an affordable cost.
This system provides more accurate fuel metering and quicker response, than a carb, or TBI injection.
Performance chips are made by aftermarket companies, and are used to boost engine power, but no-one to-date has made any for the Samurai or SideKick. Since the performance-chip makers are not as concerned with issues like reliability, mileage and emissions controls as we are, they use more aggressive settings in the fuel maps of their performance chips. That is why we went to this system, instead of going to the Chip makers
the other components are found either in a wrecking yard on newer cars. or new from a discount parts store. These components will be provided in our total kit.
the only part that was trouble, was making a multi-port intake for the 8 valve Zuk/Kick engine. our first choice was an aluminum cast intake. but that drove the price beyond reason, so we have started building a better looking intake than our prototype. we'll use bright colors or maybe have them coated with some 30 horse power chrome..
what time is it?
