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,
