:lol: Jess wont go into specifics about making the honda crank work with the engine...classic


Its a bit ridiculous considering very few people are left interested in getting the most of a g series.
I hope one day this info is free to all suzi enthusiasts who pursue to strengthen a g16 before they
are all extinct.

Well, when mines done, hopefully itll show the good points.
Ive always sought to add to the knowledge base, not everyone should have to learn things the hard way that i did.
The APV still has a g16... so theres hope yet (as long as the honda D series doesnt become hard to find :lol: )

It could also be that the Indonesian g16ab or whatever the coding is could evolve further
in Indonesia and eventually sport better conrods, crank and even improved head?
You just never know with developing economies just look at Korea and what they did
with the licensed Mitsubishi engines. They even make a v8 when Mitsu no longer do.

I love the G16 its one of the lightest 1.6 automobile engines ever made

I think Im being a bit hopeful about further improvements after all the k12a and
M series look to be in the pipeline once the G is gone. However I still think the
G is a torquier and lighter little pump.... capacity vs capacity and a preferred choice
for light aircraft pilots and other suicidal maniacs!.

I asked what crank it was he used on the Teamswiftt build and he said its from a
1988 Acura and thats all he knows :(

Looked up the American Acura info

D16A1
Found in:
* 1986-89 Acura Integra (USA)
D16A3
1986-89 Acura Integra (Australia)

So the A1 seems to be fine if Jardamuth is using one.

The car was assembled in a hurry, out of secondhand parts (had to register it at the time)
And ive had a lot of wear and tear driving to work... ive been spending money renewing the car (unfortunately AFTER damage has occurred :( ) honestly havent had money for luxuries like working on my "Toy" motor.
Just when alls going well...life steps in

Im still going to proceed, but its a matter of finances at the moment

On a plus note though, I have recently aquired a lot of local contacts (reputable workshops) for paint, carbonfibre moulding, aluminium fabrication and engine assembily

So im afraid ive made no posts on the grail as theres nothing to report at the moment

Finally after years of planning...
Rayven bought me wide rims and so i can move on to fitting the widebody :mrgreen:
have already cut out the steel flare and welded the inner arch to the outter skin, now its just perfecting the fibreglass overfender, and adding a factory flarelip (which is moulded off the front guards)
:wink: Something different, enjoy

Not sure why you didnt just cut the guard out and extend it.

Didnt want just box flare them ( if thats what you meant) and dont have enough timeshare on a decent mig to fabricate sheetmetal curves like the fibreglass ones :-k
Xxr 522 "concave supremacy" is the wheel title..

Even with extensive cutting and shutting, still had to fill and create new areas to blend the curves
No matter how similar something looks, its never just a matter of slip on and go...
But its getting there

(Dont worry, im not leaving the bodyfiller on there, just getting the shape spot on then make a moulding and recreate in cf with honeycomb for stiffness) :wink:

This is one ambitious build. Very informative too.
Is the car currently registered?
(It sounds like it's travelled as much unregistered as rego'd. :lol: )

Makes my plans seem very pedestrian by comparison but I will be 'borrowing' some of your ideas when I get into the engine more seriously.

:lol: it was 2 weeks out of rego recently, had been parked up for 3 months while i worked on it... However with one this modified, its essential to keep it road licenced..
Theres now too much to reverse it clear pit inspection (traffic inspectors would need an oxygen mask to recover from gasping)
Major works like the widebody are the reason its had dodgy black paint for all these years, too many extensive works to be done before justifying a respray
Well i built it as i wanted, always hoped to be an inspiration
