Twin cam G13B head onto G16A block.

The head from this:


...onto this block



Benefits:
Replaces the narrow angle 16 valve SOHC design fitted with throttle-body injection for a 16 valve DOHC equipped with multi-point EFI.

Mods Required:
Firstly (in case you're thinking of another way), the 1600 engine's crank is slightly too long to fit in the 1300 twin cam block, which is why this head conversion is the only viable option for a big cube Swift.

A 16 valve 1600 bottom end is the best platform, as it already has valve recesses in each piston. Stud patterns, bolt sizes and galleries all match perfectly. The block should be then equipped with a 1.8mm Vitara head gasket (Part No 1114171C00) to lower the CR to a more manageable level. Compression ratio with this head gasket will work out to just over 10:1.

A cam belt sourced from a belt supplier (such as Gates), is also needed to compensate for the 1600's 30mm taller block. The belt must be connected to the GTi's crank pulley (Part No 12631 53B00) while a smaller diameter tensioner (Part No 12810 53B01000) may give more flexibility when choosing the belt. In addition, custom cam belt covers will need to be fabricated.

The safest and most effective method of controlling fuel and ignition is to use an aftermarket ECU suitably programmed.

Re: sidekick 1600 botom + 1300 twin cam head

After a lot of search on this board and on www.ssgti.com I found that a timing belt from a honda 1.6 DOHC or a 125 thoot from an acura _SHOULD_ fit (didn't found anything more precise)

Re: sidekick 1600 botom + 1300 twin cam head

well price and availablety.
for now my project cost me about 700$ for the engine, wiring, ECU

A 1.6 16v must be at lease the same price just for the engine.

Over here swift GTI are easy to find for a song..

Brent Bradshaw at Trail Tough has done this motor. I'd suggest talking with him for all the specifics.

Re: sidekick 1600 botom + 1300 twin cam head

I've just put the engine in the truck.
It sit about 2 1/2 inch to high.

Im thinking about the dodge mount, but Im afraid that wont lower the engine enough [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
and I don't like the idea of a use scoop on my hood..

I used on both sides:
Sidekick bracket on the block
Sidekick engine mount (rubber)
Samurai braket on the frame (U slaped flat bar)

Anyone have idea ?
