I believe the GTI springs are slightly lower and a smidge stiffer rate from factory. The dampers must be similarly uprated...however both are geometrically the same and interchangeable

Re: M15 into AWD

I've been looking into this and the simple fact is the M15 bellhousing is different to the AWD gearbox. thus the bellhousing needs modifying to change the bolt pattern. Either an adapter plate or a cut and shut or a series of inserts welded in.

Re: suzuki swift cultus convertible build

Need to be careful with turbo brackets. Due to the heat the manifolds expand and contract and if there is nowhere to go they will crack and distort. The turbo hanger I use on the Cosworth has a sliding friction clamp that holds weight but allows the change in dimension.
