Anything is possible, just depends on your fabricating and tinkering skills.

That said, unless you have a 1.8 ready to go, I would pick the 2.0L over the 1.8 (no replacement for displacement).

My suggestion? Drop the 2.7 Grand Vitara motor with the 4spd auto into your Vit. If you're going to do custom stuff, might as well go all the way.
