Re: A question about swift gti mod.
A note about using the Samurai oil pan and pickup tube: pay close attention to how the tube fits into the area around the crank , as it will hit unless you bend it to fit . Doesn't take much, and you do have to grind a bit off of the mount arm to clear the crank , just take your time and fit it properly . Also, do not remove the main girdles on the main caps , they will fit into the Sami's oil pump but it is kind of close . Also , be aware that the Swift GT uses a high volume , high pressure pump system and will move a lot more oil than the Sami's bottom end . Watch using heavy oil as you can blow seals easily . Oil pressure cold on 10w30 can hit 80psi , make sure you use a guage rated to 100psi or you may blow it . In cold weather , you may want to use 5w30 or so , dependin upon how well the crank is fitted , bearing condition , ect . Also, when you install the crankshaft center bolt , try to use the least worn of the bolts , and use locktite and torque it to around 75lbs or will come loose and eat the crank keyway out . Other than that , don't ever let the timing belt slip....!!!
