Engine swaps

I just bought my 4th the Samuria, this one has a blown engine. What is out there for swap kits and easy to find engines??

Thanks for your help.

Jack.

Re: Engine swaps

The most common is the 1.6L They are easy to come by (for the most part) light, cheap and better then the 1.3L Also, 2.0L engines can be swapped in with a kit from Trailtough! Looks like a easy swap and the thing fits in there nice. If you want to go bigger, 2.8's, 3.1's, 3.8's, 4.3's, even some 350 motor swap guys out there [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
Lots of info here, izook.com and the Zuk venders
Good luck [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

Re: Engine swaps

A 16 L is all I'm looking for. Something to get it back on the road. Do you know where to find conversion kits??

Thanks for your return in this. Jack

Re: Engine swaps

As much as I would like to support any Suzuki vendor...

And I love to see vendors trying to do new things...

I have seen Suzuki Lightning's sloppy work and don't think I could ever recomend purchasing anything from them. The displays they brought to last year's Zookimelt looked like crap. Most of the welds were horrible, and nothing seemed to line up right.

Re: Engine swaps

Sean did my 1.6L 8 valve conversion with the trailtough adapters.

I am extremely pleased with the performance of the 1.6L, even with stock gearing and 31's

Re: Engine swaps

If this is going to be an off-road rig go with 1.6L
If this going to be a street rig, try thr 1.3 dohc swift GT swap the 1.6 has better low end power where the GTI engine has better high end power.
LOW speed=1.6
High speed=1.3 Dohc
At least thats what I got out of all my research.
This site has tons of info a search will amaze you, Trust me.
