trans options

Can I put a vitara transmission behind a 91 sidekick engine? Will it bolt up just right or are their conversion kits available? Also, what is the most popular engine swap? can I put a vitara V6 in the 91 kick? Thanks

Don't think that one is going to fit! (If it did, I'd be stealing my wife's Grand Vitara V6 to put in MY Kick!)

Re: trans options

Sorry, but that one is a new combination to us I guess. Most of the engine swap discussion here is Samurai-based.

The most common engine/transmission transplants known are 1.6 8 or 16-valve/samurai, Rabbit 1.9 TD/samurai (there's an adapter kit available again), Toyota R22/??, Mazda Rotary/??, Fords 2.3/pinto 4spd/ and various GM V-6/?? combinations. All of the above are into a Samurai.

And, yes, there is alledgedly a kit available that let's you drop a 350 v-8 into a Samurai.

Anyone here ever done an engine swap on a Tracker? You know that the Trackeer will someday, by sheer attrition, replace the Samurai...

Do you know about a 4.3 GM conversion? I wish there was more info out there, I know kicks aren't as moded as sammys are. I'll keep looking around and let you all know. Thanks
