Hi all,

Great forum. I’m reading threads left and right. New here. I have a 2002 Suzuki Swift Summum 1.3 16v. I like airbags, ABS and aircon, electric windows.. basically, all a GTI lacks.

But it looks like a 765kg silver turd on wheels.

My goal is to create the most economical funbox GTI Frankenstein possible.

The economic part:


Due to tax reasons, it mustn't be heavier than 850KG.

I want to get an LPG G3 system installed. I’m looking at a LandiRenzo direct injection system, which’ll cost me about 1000 euro based on hearsay. I will visit the installer for a quote tomorrow.

Does anyone have experience with LPG on a 1.3 Summum Swift 16V & the GTI twin cam?

What about flash lube systems?


The funbox part:

I like the GTI engine and the look. I bought a 1990 GTI that is not worth saving (rust on the body and frame). The cosmetic parts are in OK condition. The clutch is fucked. The gearbox I am not sure about, same about the suspension.

I want to put the body parts on my 2002 Summum.


hood
trunk
lights
body kit & bumpers
exhaust
rims


Optional (depending on the condition of the donor parts)

GTI suspension
sway bars
disc brakes

Any other GTI parts that are valuable?

I want to take them home (1.650km) with me in the Summum, so space is limited. I will leave the donor GTI at my garage here.

Engine switch

I need to get a quote on the engine rebuild and an offer for the switch. If it’s feasible, I will switch them. If not, I will have a GTI engine for sale.


The donor car’s GTI engine got 250.000km on it. I will (probably need to) get the engine rebuild, and I’ll get a quote tomorrow hopefully. Does anyone know how long that takes on average? I have no experience and would like an indication in hours/parts so I know if the quote is realistic or not.


Thank you all very much in advance.

It looks like the same basic shell so the gti parts should be a str8 swap. Not sure about the wiring loom for the engine ECU to run it but I would imagine the all the undercarriage can be swapped. Would be nice to have photos in and out to compare your model.

you mean interior and exterior? I'm not following exactly. Dropped the donor car off at the garage today, got a very nice quote for LPG 3 for about 350 euro.

Getting quote for engine switch and rebuild on wednesday

So, a little update.

The car is being worked on. I like how it's progressing so far. The GTI donor engine has been taken out. A lot of parts still available.

But I had a minor annoyance. Maybe another member could shed some light on this.

I wanted the back from the GTI MK2 swapped to the 2002 Summum. But, according to the garage, this wasn't possible. Is this really true? I thought the parts were interchangeable?

If there is a workaround, does someone know how to do it? Would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Ed

The wiring harnesses are different, so a new one could be made/adapted. Have to replace the upper bumper at least and depending on your regulations extra lights for reversing placed in lower section, or replaced the lower bumper as well. Some bracketry will need to be changed but is all doable and been done many times (See Toomanycars mods). On another note refering to LPG, I dont know where you could legally or safely put a Tank in the car. I think your car workshop is lazy as anything is possible but whether it is economically possible is a different matter.
