1989 Suzuki Swift GTi, 1.3L 4 cyl, DOHC, PFI

i've got two sammis... actually one is for parts.. but it's in decent condition only it's minus one engine. would a 1.3L swift gti engine work? it's dual over-head cam, and PFI. supposedly it put's out 100hp! what would the swap intail? i'd like to take the 1.3 from my lwb and drop that into the parts SWB. and do the swap into the LWB. does this 1.3L actually put out that much power? would the swap be very complicated? and does PFI stand for Ported Fuel Injection? what exactly is PFI?

1987 LWB, stock (for now)

This is actually a very common swap especially among Canadians for some reason. I have thought about this swap as well, especially since I have access to a 1.3 Swift GT engine. The one drawback is the distributor. You'll either need to move the motor mounts forward a couple of inches or fond a "bent" distributor that works. I'm trying to find the distributor but haven't had any luck yet...

Does anyone make a kit for this swap or do you have to fab out the motor mounts your self?

Give Brent @ TRAILTOUGH.com a call at 1-877-SUZUKIS or www.TRAILTOUGH.com. He has done the 1.3 swap several years ago in one of his Zuk's. He's definately the guy to talk to! Here is a link to his write up on his Zuk with a 1.3 GTI motor in it:
