Re: Swift GTi EFI on samurai engine
Thanks all for the reply 'bout the negative possibility of a gti intake on the samurai head. and am i in a bad luck or what???
My samurai's engine just developed a clickerty clackerty sound that goes in rhythm with the revs. sure sounds loud enough to be worry.
Can't trace the sound. It had the sound (a bit) before I did a valve backlash adjustment. After the adjustment, it was OK and now about 1 month later, the sound is sure louder than I can remember.
Any ideas? The shop tells me that it may be worn rocker arms or shaft or piston problems rather than the valve backlash setting.
So? My question now is that since the gti efi intake cannot be bolted up to the samurai's head, I can sure bolt up the entire head and intake of the gti to the samurai's block and arriving at an interference setup... Am I right? Any other items that I need to consider like Timing belts? Distributor? etc?...
I'm not too worried about having lower compression. How much lower can it be? If it's low enough, a tiny turbo may be of help? I'm not looking at huge gains but just want a tiny boost to make driving a bit less stressful if you know what I mean.
I may be wrong...
