Keeping the intercooler, its off a FPV turbo six so will flow more than enough for this project(300hp in std form),its intake and outlet are almost ideal for fitting behind the std mk3 bar without having to cut anything out ,can even run with the fog lights in situ,and more importantly it keeps the area in front of the radiator open so cooling shouldnt be an issue,unlike most big front mounts.
Looking at the pics I can see how you think the manifold is sitting funny ,but it does line up correctly,there is a couple of bolt holes above the manifold that are used for bolting up a manifold heat sheild on the factory set up and I think that may be confuseing in the pics.

Didnt manage to fire it up yesterday but should have it up and running early this week.

No PAS fitted but there would be room for a PAS pump on the front of the block if needed.The M18 is only slightly heavier than the g13b and I would guess inc the liana box it would be lighter than a g13b and 4wd box ,so I dont think PAS is needed.

Just about ready for the dyno!!,
Engine starts and runs fine,the adaptronic in self learn mode has done its job at idle and no load conditions very well.All the liana engine sensors have been retained and the adaptronic programmed to suit(except 3 bar map sensor,and delco air temp probe).Throttle cable from gti retained and used with the liana tb,idle control hooked up and working,vvt hooked up and needs mapping.
Dry cell battery fitted in original mounting spot.
Will post a few more pics once the engine bay is complete and front bar fitted back on.

First stage of dynoing completed tonight ,turbo is making boost early (approx 2500rpm ).VVt is being a bi**h to set up ,it does work but not as quickly as it should(its just a matter of configuring it correctly in the adaptronic)So with the vvt turned off, on 8psi it made 168hp atw with a very conservative tune and 6300 soft cut rev limit,so I would guess that my target of 200hp atw will be easily acheivable on 12psi boost.Unfortunately we ran out of time tonight and I cant use the dyno again till early next week!! :( .
The whole conversion has been very straightforward from start to finish, no real mechanical problems to overcome , biggest issue would be wireing in the ecu and adapting it to suit the mk3 body loom, but thankfully Andy(garndi)did a great job with the wireing loom and all functions as it should.
So next week I should be able to get the vvt working correctly and give it a bit more boost and the whole jobs finished.Should be a great little rocket ship that should be completly reliable as its only running low boost and has the large gearset as std.

It looks at home more than a G13B. Long live the M18A.

That is SOOOO neat.... respect to everyone involved. A turbo, VVT, 1.8 GTi with a strong gearbox... Drool... In fact, I think I'd be happy even without the turbo!! And I'm glad it's a Suzuki motor. That really tops it off.

How much to do a Mk1?? :D

Brakes-
Well my black race car still gets around on std factory discs with PFC carbon mettalic pads in the front,it has no trouble stopping the car on track and certainly no problems when I do the occasional rally on the road.
The blue car has cross drilled and slotted front discs and will be getting a set of PFC or padgid pads -thats all its getting and Im sure they will pull the car up fine.
Until you have driven a car with amazingly good pads you wouldnt beleive its possible by just changeing the material of the pad, but just ask anyone Ive taken for a spin in my black car and they are all amazed at the brakeing.Most guys dont like the idea of spending $300+ on pads when they can go to supercheap and buy pads for $30 but the investment is definately worthwhile.

LOL...
i guess most guys like the idea of spending on things they can see, more so than what actually matter with the butt dyno. :P

Looking very neat.

Good to see Garndi working on it.. the global swift mechanic ;)

Think you need to hurry up and make the Hasport style kit for the M18A into the Swift and get some more of these on the road!

The irony of you using the blue car is painful ;) , but awesome to see such huge progress :)
