Vitara to Samurai

As the 1.6 G16a motor can adapt easily to the Samurai gearbox, I can assume that the G16a transmission can adapt easily to the Samurai block, Yeah?
Same for the g16a auto ?
How much longer is it, as it has a transfer case attached doesn't it ?
If I attached a g16a transmission would I have to bypass the Sammy transfer case ?
I have a 2" body lift so there may be room for the larger transmission.
Anyone done anything similar?

Re: Vitara to Samurai

I think it's a one way street.. most vendors sell adapters to hook the 1.6 to a 1.3 transmission, but I don't think you can go the other way very eaisly..

Re: Vitara to Samurai

Yeah I'm from Finland.
I'm swapping Tracker 1.6+tranny/t-case package to my SJ413 LWB. Old motor was buning oil, carb was scrap
and tranny was whining more and more. I found carb '94 tracker, 45000km, side body damage
for about $700 and decited to update my daily driver [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
Now it seems to come my next trail rig with P/S, Tracker motor/tranny/t-case/SJ413 t-case,
full gage, 5.12 axle gears, cut fenders...........

Only problem is that I have to use my Sj410 for daily delivery and pavement
charasteristics are questionable [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
Carburated '94 Tracker was originally importetd to Russia where it was crashed
and one guy bought it from there as Tax Free present.

Re: Vitara to Samurai

Thanks, I would like to hear how it works out in the end.
If I understand right you are using the Vitara Transfer case as well as the Samurai Transfer case, yeah ?
