So as most of you might know I have been playing around with these pocket rockets for a little over a decade now. I just recently got married and the Mrs and I have agreed that the Esteem wagon and my "Project Ranger" have to go. The city has recently enacted a fee attached to your registration to pay for a bridge and road maintenance (first city in our region to do this) and they are eyeballing me to register them as operable. I recently gifted my '96 Metro to a veteran friend and I just picked up a '99 Swift.

I've been reading Mike and Kris' writeups about 1.6 Esteem parts going onto the 1.3 16 valve and will be pulling the appropriate parts. I am wanting to know if anybody wants any other parts before this 1 owner car goes off to the boneyard. It is a '99 Esteem 1.6l 5spd. what other parts will fit over onto the 1.3l 16 valve?

For Pics of the Esteem see: http://teamswift.net/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=37704

Where is the write up about which parts fit? I'd love to read that.

Pull the cam and sprocket. You already know about the TB (though I think there are two different types - check to see if it's the right one) and check the exh. manifold. Probably not the right one but you never know

What's up with the cam profile? What is the difference on the TB? I will look at the exhaust manifold but I also have a NIB OEM manifold for the GTi. I also looked at the SuzukiRD header.

GTi manifold is an excellent choice. The runners are 2 mm larger diameter than the identical looking (Canadian market) 1.6 sedan manifold that I always used. You just have to mod the bolt pattern a bit.
Coolant hose connection and TPS are different on some o9f the 1.6 TB's. If the TPS is the same you should be fine.
I think the car profile is the same between 1.3 and 1.6, but the truck profile has more duration. I'll look through my book to be sure. I just thought it would be a shame to let that core get scrapped for 10 minutes work.
