got a roll bar to suit a mx6 and very happy to say with matter of cutting off 2 bolts it fits my convertible too. bolts straight on to the seat belt top mounts, with the seat all the way back has 10mm clearance and doesn't interfere with the top , right height too. :)

finally finished the interior , turn the 3 piece convertible top cover into a 1 piece and can only be used when the top is down because the roll bar is in the way.

Very tidy setup with the interior mate. Looks brand new.

Have you thought of taking one of the Swifts down to the
All Japan Day Car Show at Glenelg next year ?

Just curious as to what you used for the roll bar ? Was it for a Miata ? Really liking your build on this project.

thanks rag, got the roll bar on ebay , expecting to do mods to it , but the top mounts fitted perfectly to the seat belt anchor points. hoops lined up to seats . just drilled and bolted the rear mounts . added the bottom brace for extra rigidity and because it looked like the sydney harbor bridge without it,

Sorry, I should have started my post with "I love your work !!" . We have several different types of cars and as a result we are in several car clubs and I must say this is probably the best and most thorough build I have ever seen :!:

not sure, no need to be a sorry or sarcastic ,im stumbling through this build but having fun, your point on adding weight is valid. i read that mx5 convertible has a 1 to 1 weight ratio front and rear. so i put the battery in the boot and was thinking the roll bar and brace might distribute the weight to the rear for a closer 1 to 1 ratio. not sure if it works for front wheel drive.
i prefer criticism, adds to a better build.

I love how you’ve done the dash mate. Can’t wait to see this thing fired up and see what numbers it makes.

thanks answer , the dash fitment was luck a fluke, really its dodgy as. all i did was grind the guts out and add the form foam which goes around the iq3 from packaging to fill the gaps . stop bugging me about the engine and numbers . your giving me an anxiety attack to hurry up and finish it 8-[ .

this build is starting to s**t me, #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o
ok i pre wired for the dbw for the future elite 1500 dbw when i originally installed the elite 1000 because it uses the same haltech wire loom as the 1000.
so after downloading the latest 1500 software with cruise control it wont allow me to use one of the wires [output]i set aside for dbw on the older version of the 1500 software without cruise.
so i now i need 2 extra avi wires , [which are all used #-o ]one for dbw and one for cruise]
worked out that if i get a bigger 8 point thermo couple amp , can steal the avi wires from the oil ,water etc temps.
the 8 point tca will now do all the temps and added a fuel temp to boot.

ok on to engine build
after finding out the forged conrod bolts hit the mains brace, i had the main caps machine flat and made metal straps[ 10mm thick] so i clear the brace and in turn strengthen them at the same time.

big thank you to cappy and dmw dave for brilliant idea and suggestion, =D> =D>

made a turbo mount out of the original gti exhaust mount,
Didnt like the idea of all the weight of the turbo hanging off the 4 8mm bolts on the turbo manifold

This one super clean amazing build. I was thinking about doing something similar with that stock exhaust hanger mount. Although I'm running a different turbo it is nice to see how you configured it.

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.

I agree with gtpswift, you have done an excellent job on the turbo support brackets and look super strong. However something must give with manifold expansion. Could only be a cracked manifold or worst case an crack in you nice red paint job around the block mount :( You could pick up the whole car on those 4 M8 bolts, so the turbo hanging off them is nothing.
I would remove the support bracket and make a support strap around the exhaust after the first bend under the engine. That will allow plenty room for expansion/contraction yet still support the turbo and manifold. Behind that have your flex joint for engine movement.

You've done everything 100% to date, =D> no doubt you'll come up with a solution if you feel the need.

very good , yes i was thinking the same after i built it . the bracket holes have plenty of clearance on the bolts on the block . the bolts in the block are lock tight loose with spring washers but i might use longer bolts with springs.
what do you think? 8-[

Brackets looking good now and should work a treat. I see you had some left over key steel pieces from main bearing caps to use :idea:

fresh from the tig welders and ceramic coat .
The inlet mani has a different ceramic coat to draw the heat away , instead of drawing heat in like turbo mani.
see how long the e bay ss turbo mani will last with the ceramic coat .

full clutch kit for a sf413 engine to a sf416 gearbox conversion.
exedy cushion button kit and a light weight 3.5kg npc flywheel.
thankyou bewitched for putting me on to npc [QLD] for the flywheel. =D>
im thinking that dwm dave had something do with npc, as there is a part no, even for a gti to 1600 gearbox conversion.
NPC part no. is RNF66-1 THIS IS FOR A GTI TO 1600AWD BOX it needs to be machine from 33 mm to 30mm thick to fit the 1600 FWD

back to rear coilovers,
the protlum coil overs are custom made for the gti with a offset top shock mount, so it fits into the shock tower without cutting and shutting,like ive seen on other rear coilover fits on the forum.
but there is still not much clearance in the tower when i jacked it up, so i use a jack in the tower tunnel hole and added heat to give more clearance.

Where are you mounting the remote cans? Will the remote banjo fitting hit the shock tunnel?

the rear shock tower is not engineered for coilovers. so i turned the ultra race 4 point brace , into a 8 point brace.
as for mounting it i only drilled two holes in the boot floor inline with the existing chassis holes and used rear seat belt mounts which are not used in a convertible

i think placing the remotes off the sway bar mounts was my best option without cutting and shutting. a couple of bullbar to lightbar mounts and spare arp studs did the trick.

careful with th ebattery positive rubbing on foam, it's fine now but can make it's way through the foam with vibration and catch fire :P

always a pleasure to follow your builds, it's like the centerfold of playboys magazine :lol:

CRANK TRIGGER DONE ,after messaging haltech, the vitara trigger wheel was no good for sequential fuel and ignition , the trigger wheel is set up originally for wasted spark .
Cut and shut a 36-1 e-bay crank trigger to fit a suzuki timing pulley .
also using a high rpm hall sensor from EFI HARDWARE ,which can read and is in tolerance of tooth depth, width etc of my 36-1 trigger wheel, and modified a sensor mount.
also modified the original suzuki analog sensor , just in case there is problem at the tuners with the hall sensor.
tested the trigger wheel and hall sensor set up with a drill, on a oscilliscope it showed a missing rising edge , haltech said its not a problem , just program the ecu, using the falling edge. COOL

BASE TIMING DONE, had to relocate the base timing mark due to the super damper .
to read it ,you have to place timing light in the right front wheel tub.

CAM SENSOR DONE , haltech recommended a 36- 1 crank sensor and a one trigger home cam shaft sensor for sequential ignition and injection and to pick up the difference in cam /crank timing due to timing belt deflection [could be up to 10% power lost due to timing belt deflection]
modified a suzuki esteem cam shaft sensor , turned and faced it and added the o ring slot identical to the gti distributor .
this has been done by others on the forum ,pretty sure credit is due to BEWITCHED for being the first to experiment and modify =D> , im just adding my 2 cents
the optical sensor has a four window trigger , haltech recommended to cover the other 3 windows with tape , didnt like that option.
did some home work and found the nissan sr20 uses the the same optical sensor and AGM make a one window home for the nissan ,SWEET bolts straight in .

Brakes looking good with large rotors. What are their dimensions or part number/model?
I want to check if I can fit to cappo

hi cappy ,i did a a bit homework on these rotors to work out which rotors i could work with on the gti. dont know how the cappuccino is set up and if it takes the suzuki sport calipers. i found the a repco site where you punch in diameters ,hat size , width etc to give you a option of rotor with make and model.
go to https://www.repco.com.au/en/parts-servi ... 1862918118

looking for better brakes options , answer (thanks mate) put me on to another of bewitched"s brilliant discovery back in 2014, that the suzuki sport calipers bolt straight on to the gti.
after getting a set of near new 2011 suzuki sport calipers i notice the full pad isnt used , checked out that the suzuki sport rotors are and 276mm dia (gti 250) 20mm thick (gti 18.5) and 5 stud

ATT BEFORE ANY BODY GOES WITH THESE MODS , I HAVE NOT TESTED THEM YET , BUT I CAN SAY THE ROTOR/ CALIPER SPINS FREELY AND IS CLOCKED UP AND IN TOLERANCE.
WILL TEST ANY WHERE BETWEEN 2 MONTHS TO 2 YEARS 8-[
went to the repco site to track down a rotor to fit , found that with 4 mods the
NISSAN 180 SX S13 2.0 L YEAR 1991 ROTOR will work.
the nissan rotors are also 22mm thick compared to 20mm thick for the suzuki sport sport and the caliper piston has to be all the way in to fit, also the weight for the nissan rotors are 6.1kg compared to the 4.1 kg for the gti . bit of up sprung weight there , hopefully the remote coilovers can sort that. 8-[
MOD 1
ROTOR MACHINED FROM 280MM TO 276MM DIA
MOD 2
CENTER HOLE NEEDS A SPIGOT TO GO FROM 68.1MM TO 62.2MM DIA.
I MACHINED A 68.1 WHEEL SPIGOT , BORED IT OUT TO 62.2 AND FACED THE THICKNESS
TO SUIT
MOD 3
BRAKE CALIPER MOUNT TO BE MACHINED ACCURATELY CLOCK UP MACHINED SURFACE
1MM OFF , TO BRING THE THE RIGHT CENTER LINE OF PADS AND ROTOR
MOD4
DRILL AND COUNTERSINK FOR ROTOR RETAINER BOLTS . I USED A OLD GTI REAR HUB TO
TRANSFER THE HOLE LOCATION

went to wreckers and found a suzuki swift sedan glx with the 1600 gearbox and found out it has an extra gearbox mount on the bottom of the gearbox which bolts to a bracket in the middle of the tunnel .
my convertible was a automatic and has a bracket in the tunnel to left side for a mount .
so i cut and shut the 1600 gearbox bracket to suit.
not sure if it needs it but cant hurt to have more support

was about to send you a PM regarding this,

you need it for unleash the beast mode, without it it will crack the casing from the rear mount to the axle seal

i dont have this body mount so i did a steel brace that connect the 2 rear bolts of rear mount (on the transmission) to the 3 bolt mount you use for your 1600 4th mount

this perch is long so i think it will take all the load when accelerating,

thanks for that boosts sgt , when i found out about that extra mount , i decided to delete the suzitech engine steady .had to do mods to the bracket to fit it anyway.
if look closely you can see i used half of the suzitech steady on the mod bottom box mount , so i have a spare poly rubber.
with all 4 poly solid mounts now , i think im going to feel it.

been a little distracted on the build no.3, but back on track for my end of year deadline. #-o
finish the turbo ss pipe work , took for ever ,one weld at a time ,too and throw to the mig welder. had to mark the position for each weld , as the welder told me, a spot weld would ruin his work.
as you see on the photos not much clearance.
