Awwww...

Hi Jason,

Welcome to the RedlineGTi forum. Your GTi is a Mk.2 model. All Mk.2 model trims fit.

As you are new, I won't give you too much much sarcasm, but I do love your description of the 'overhead racing cams'... damn, I gotta get some of those bad boys... and then get me a-racin' track! :lol:

Your engine is a Suzuki G13B- which is a DOHC 16V 4 cylinder normally aspirated type. I guess your terminology comes from that description.

Have you noticed the search function of this site yet? Over many years the same questions tend to be asked again and again. There is a button at the top of the page that links to every question you ever wanted answered regarding these cars at your fingertips. All you need is a few key words and away you go! It is best if you use this option as you will certainly learn more than any of us can impart.

A warning though; Owning one of these cars takes COMMITMENT! And usually bucket loads of money. Read lots, ask questions, spend freely, don't be afraid to tinker and you'll be just fine. :wink:

But, If you really, really, really get stuck with something, please send me a PM. If I can't answer your question, one of my friends can.

Cheers,

Drew

EDIT: Fixed. Sorry Mik, you are absolutely correct. :oops:

Different dash/upper door trims between 89-91 to 92 onwards so you can't just replace the door trims with mk3 items. This goes also with the centre console which is different after the update. Everything in the back is interchangeable.

highongti, mk2 (your car) should have a square dash so you'll need to find same style to swap over, unless you get yourself some non power window mk 3 items and then have to seperate the bottom of the door cards from the top and change them over that way (if the top is still good in yours).

Hey, just bought myself a vgc mk1 gti. Will post pics soon.
It runs ok but aparently has a leaking/blown head gasket
according to the bloke I bought it from. Getting it fixed asap,
although not sure who to take it to in Perth, and what sort of
other things I should get done while the head is off.

Any suggestions would b tops as I'm new to the whole suzuki scene.
I've traditionally been a rotary guy but currently have a WRX which
is also getting some $$$ thrown at it. I'm thinking that the WRX will b
my flexing car and the GTi my drive to work and motorkhana car.

finally getting around to doing this lol

my name is dean im 22 and i own a 99' gti (funnily enough hahaha)

didnt even plan on buying one just stumbled upon it and bought it straight up

think the previous owner was a p plater or a complete retard hahaha heres a short list why ....

its been lowered like 15 inches (ok 3) and it has 17's on it that according to my mate at tempe are $450 a piece lol so it has plenty of scrub (dont like)

looks like dash was removed to install head unit (i know wtf right) and he cut all the wires from the head unit and the clock out and re ran them himself then filled it with crappy old pioneer gear that was shorting out and just disgusting so i removed it all and will re do it at a later date

(still have the clock and pocket if anyone has a plug and wires for it )

cut 6x9 holes in the parcer shelf then turned the speakers 90 degrees and cut them again so i removed that too

found 3 seperate 4gauge power cables for an amp that wasnt there ?

paint is fading and there are big scratches on the rims

cheap tyres that are noisy as hell

broken under dash panels on the drivers side

had a wood grain steering wheel god knows why but i have since removed it and replaced it with a leather unit

other than mentioned items the interior is in pretty good

drivers side window is rattly (the slide that the window runs up and down in has broken and the rubber slide insert has fallen out so the power window struggles abit every now and then

had to rebuild the gear box ... had to nurse it home from the wisemans ferry cruise hahaha

replaced clutch and flywheel

need to get the head looked at i think the valves need re-seating so im gonna look into rebuilding it

exhaust is standed with a dump tip and i suspect its been de baffled as is is kinda loud around 5000 rpm ( bad day that day lol) have a new exhaust lined up tho

well i think thats it i like heavy metal , dirt bikes , modified cars , and a few cold ones with the boys and girls down the local :)

thanks for listening and hope to meet more of u on the next cruise

Hey everyone my name is lenny and I'm 23 from south aus.
I've just got a 91 barina gs 3 door no longer sporting any badging connecting it with holden, It has the sports buckets, gti front bar and rear spoiler.
I bought it as I needed something cheap for driving to work but have fallen in love with it :) In terms of mods...none except a set of racing fear 15s haha. Not a great deal on the horizon other than stiffer springs, a cam and better flowing exhaust

Hi all, just a brief introduction.

I bought a new GTI back in 1992 intended to be a replacement rally car but for one reason or another, never got around to it. Ended up as my runabout vehicle and now some 148,000 km later, I'm looking at turning it into a project for the occasional black track jaunt. Planning to go naturally aspirated at this point and learn to drive again before getting too crazy. Will be suspension, wheels and tyres, head work, cams, exhaust, chip, lsd and good clutch. The aim will be a fun car to drive that is also reliable (as it's been for 20 years).

Great friendly looking forum and looking forward to learning lots from you all. Nice to see there's some Swift enthusiasts over here in the West.

Cheers.

I can help you a little, as that isnt a stock rear bar at all.

also, it's most likely a 'cino.

im having issues making measures to fit a D14 engine mounts so the engine gets straight in it.

i've seen the GTI conversion to B16 around but the mounts from D14 are a bit smaller

Hi everyone,

I'm Caswal, I own a '93 Suzuki Cappuccino:

Attachment:
cappo-side.jpg
cappo-side.jpg [ 134.79 KiB | Viewed 112 times ]


My long term goal with the Cappo, is to replace it's F6A with a G13B, mated to a Jimny/Sierra gearbox, so that's the reason I am here. A fellow in the UK has done the conversion, so I am not the first, so I know it can be done.

The reasons for the conversion is to basically make the car more maintainable here in Aus, and it's a better engine to make more power from. :D

So I'll be hanging around, reading up about things, but also doing some parts hunting.

Cheers
