Re: 4wd Saloon Parts

MegaZip are pretty much _the_ source of NOS parts, so if it is listed as NLA then your chances are pretty slim.

You might have some luck second hand though. Panels forward of the rear doors are the same as 5 door Swift models, same with front interior trims and dashboard.

Re: Fuel Rail Question

The simplest way is to put the aftermarket reg in line after the stock reg. Because a rising rate reg will hold higher pressure than the stock reg it isn't an issue - the stock reg becomes redundant. Because the factory reg is integrated into the rail, your other option is an aftermarket billet rail...

Assuming the engines are the same (i.e: both single cam) then the ECUs will be close, if not identical.
All ECUs have a code on them, so you can check if it matches the existing unit. There are differences between A/T and M/T ECUs for the F series, but I don't know if that affects functionality.

Trying to piggyback a water to air setup off the engine cooling system is not smart. It needs to be a closed system with a heat exchanger. You can get them below ambient air temp under the right conditions, but they're really only preferable if space is not available for a decent air to air setup.
