Hello! I am 15 years old boy from Finland. I bought sivile Swift GTi Mk2 last winter. I built it up to rally with my dad. Here is some specs:

Engine:

1298cc G13B engine, stock.

Gearbox:

1.3 litre normal Swift gearbox, not GTi. GTi gearbox broke on test.. :/

Suspension:

Front: Bilstein
Back: Koni

Car building (in finnish):

And some test:

Current plans:

Gearbox whit GTi parts, except 1.0l final ratio.
Co-driver seat.
Maybe Gripper's Diff. lock.
And some training for driver, me. :)

--

I have drived 3 rallysprints now whit that. It is not so fast, but i get much experience from asphalt and from that car. Here is incar videos:

Your planned final ratio change (4.4:1 I'm guessing) and diff locker will change the way it comes out of the corners. Good work (for both you and the car). Post some more incar vids as you develop the car.

Yes I have. I have now 3.9, and normal 1.3l ratios, so its not so good for Finnish rallysprint as you can see.. I know diff. lock makes lot for car. Thats why I have dreamed about it. Thanx! Of course I post! :)

I'd be getting the driver training now and then lots of private practice before you learn too many bad driving habits. I'm sure this is a car that you will enjoy.

I think you are doing very well. And it is great to see you doing testing for both you and the car. Knowing both you and the cars limits is the best way to do fast times. Congratulations, keep it up and we need more video.

Thats a great start to a budding rally career, what age are you allowed to compete in Motorsport in Finland? Here in New Zealand it is 12 y/o but in Finland rallying is almost a national sport 8)

Same year when you fill up 15 years. I could have start racing 1.1.2014, when I was 14. I filled up 29. day of January. Now I go to garage to do something for that black GTi. :P

I have drived since when I was 13. My first car was rwd Mazda 323, then I bought fwd Mazda 323 and I liked more fwd than rwd. Last autumn we bought that Swift because we knew it was good car. Its small and powerful although its stock. And I have drived 100km on asphalt, not so much.. Including training and real races..

My dad drives rallysprint with his friends Toyota Starlet. Engine 5k 1600cc 190hp, diff. lock, Volvo rear axle, Ap-Racing brakes, suspension Öhlins, dogbox etc.. Its really powerful car.

That is pretty impressive. Thanks for sharing!

Do you have more information on your bilstein shocks?

Now I have little bit looser springs on front, old was 500lbs, new 400lbs. Next training tomorrow, next race on saturday. :) And on sunday too, same track but backwards.

Now guestion concerning black GTi, does 1.0l fuel pump fit to GTi? On black fuel pump is broken.. And we have one 1.0l where we can get parts.

The 1.0L is a carb car and runs a different pressure to the GTi Fuel Inj car. 1.0L is like 4-6 Psi where the GTi is about 45psi.

Only the mk1 hydraulic tappet models were carbed, the Mk2 1.0 is single point fuel injected, throttle body does look a lot like a carb though.

The fuel pump will fit but not sure if they are the same as 1.0 only needs half the fuel delivery, I would look at getting a Walbro pump instead.
