410 help in the Phillipines

Since most of us here in the US don't have much access to performance information on the smaller turbo-ed engine that your friend has, we would not have a very good answer for you on that other than a turbo-ed 660cc engine is probably not going to take the everyday abuse that a solid, rebuilt 1000cc 4-cylinder G10 can take. Plus, you probably have better access to G10 rebuild kits - at least better than we have here!

SJ-410 and SJ-413 (Samurai) owners in North America tend to look at their trucks as cheap alternatives to Jeeps for offroading fun.

If you are just looking for the "cool" factor and can find an adapter kit (if needed), then go for the turbo.

Finally, there are a few good Suzuki websites in the Phillipines. Unfortunately, I can't find any links right now. However, here is the main LJ series website in the US which might be helpful in your search for information:

Suzuki LJ10 and LJ20 Info etc. www.lj10.com

Hope that this helps!

Cool suzuki samurai websites Philippines

Yo Guy;
The best thing to do for answers is to go to GOOGLE and paste in the following "suzuki samurai websites Philippines" without the quotes.

I don't know the horsepower or torque of your friend's little turbo engine, so it's impossible to answer if you should swap it in.

Finally, to receive valid answers as to how to upgrade your vehicle, you need to reveal it's mileage, general condition and your intended purpose!
Good luck,
Lee

I wouldn't bother replacing the engine. The 410 engine isn't much on road but off road is surprisingly capable. If you do want more power then you can get a good performance increase by replacing the stock sidedraught carb with a 1 1/2" carb, in the UK the SU carb is quite popular. A header and free flowing exhaust works well and the 410s points ignition setup can be replaced with an SJ413 distributor and coil.
What type of offroading are you doing? the 410 can be capable with just a set of 215 muds on it. If you go to much bigger tyres then you can regear using LJ80 diffs or fit lower gears to the tcase. I would decide how big a tyre you NEED then lift just enough to fit them.

2000 Vitara 1.6, 2" lift, 3" body lift, winch, snorkel, safari rack, 33" MTs, rear discs, steel front axle, 5:83s
SJ413K Pick Up, 1.6 conversion.
