Help w/Swift GTi SWAP Aussies? Canadians?

Since I can't get much help form the locals, I'll seek some advice elsewhere...

First off, does anyone know about the "bent" distributor housing that someone in Australia is supposed to be making that will fit on the Swift GTi motor? Can they get me some contact information?

Also, how simple is the 1.3 DOHC from a Swift GTi swap into a Samurai? Can anyone help (ie: DO) the wiring harness for me for less than $400.00?

Can anyone give me some advice on this swap?

i think you're referring to this place.... http://www.suzisport.au.com/accessories.htm

I am thinking of a swap myself but money does not come easy for me so it'll have to be later..

That's the website but all the emails I send to them bounce back as undeliverable. I REALLY want to do this swap! I just need some more information on it.

Capn.

G'day Mate, an avid aussie zooker here mate and I should be able to point you in the right direction.

http://www.auszook.com
Go there and make your way to the members pages. There's a friend of mine by the name of Danny Ainsworth that has done the swap. He said it wasn't to much of a problem to do. He also loves the power plant.

http://www.suzisport.au.com/contact.htm
Go there and contact the "ABLION" store on the contact page. The guy you want to talk to is LANCE. He's a whizz when it comes to engines in anything Suzuki.

He has done numerous Vitara engine swaps and also built my engine from scratch for me. (G13B block, GTI crank, GTI stud girdles, standard bore, high compression pistons, machined head, ported inlet and exhaust, custom cam(totally kicks arse) and various other odds and ends).
My 1.3 keeps up with a carb driven 1.6 engine without to much problems. It also pushes 32" BFG MT's @ 20psi in 5th gear @ highway speeds.


I hope this helps you out matey.
Contact me on icq 7316954 if you want more direct communication. I am in the Albion workshop a few times a week, asking questions, chatting, piss farting around etc etc.......I can source the info for you if you want.
