Hey everybody....Thought some of you might enjoy a build thread for something alittle different in a suzuki.

I've had my MK1 for a while now as some of you know....spent a fair bit of time turbocharged and some time recently N/A. Anyway rather than going down the turbo G13B path again, I've decided to do something different and go with a K20 Honda motor.

The mounts are all done (thanks to DMWDave) but there is still a long road ahead.

Anyway heres a couple of pics. Honzuki out!

Awesome stuff Ben. Glad to see someone trying something different. This will be an absolute beast!. Whats that weight of the engine/gearbox package like compared to G13B? Not too much of a lead tipped missle?

On the front the std manifold is pretty close to the radiator, However the likes of a skunk2 manifold look alittle shorter so I'm thinking this might be worthwhile at the end of the day. The rear side isn't too bad, it looks possible to fit a sidewinder manifold in there....still haven't decided which way to go with it yet.

As for weight its still an alloy block so its not drastic but I is alittle heavier than the g13b.

The particular motor I have makes 160hp as it is...but has the 5 speed gearbox (stronger than the 6 speed). The engine has slightly lower compression ratio which opens up the option of turbo later on - some guys in the US make 300-400hp on stock internals!!!

Glad to hear the bits arrived!

Lookin' good so far guys.
Is this car going to be street legal? Is it easier to get certification in Qld for it?
Just curious because I was going to have no end of drama trying to put a twin cam turbo with 4wd in the mightyboy I had in the early 90's (although I've seen a couple here since then). Between that and the pile of cash I was lacking the project never got off the ground. :cry:
Sure you've got it all sussed though.

TTS in the UK do a variety of Rotrex supercharger kits that work very well with the K series.
A 2.4 conversion built up from Standard Honda factory parts can net 240hp atw N/A. Honda's are just so well catered for in terms of bolt on tuning mods and high performance standard parts.
Have fun...

Technically in most states you can install a 2.4L N/A or 1.8L turbo in a Swift and have it certified, although the rules are a little more generous in QLD.

How does it go for bonnet clearance?

Apparently the K24A is only 10mm taller :D

Bonnet clearance on Bens car is o.k. .I would say there is enough room to fit a k24 into a mk1,just!!
The mk2/3 Im not sure about as I think it slopes lower at the front than a mk1.The good news with a mk2/3 is that it should fit between the chassis rails with minimum modification, although driveshaft clearance to the lower control arm /bulkhead mount may be an issue on the LH side.

Clearance to the rack is tight on the back of the diff housing ,pic shows rear mount and underbodybrace combined.

so dave the underbody brace is basically a solid engine mount to the body correct?
