IDK where to put this thread, so
Hey guys, I have here the first MK5? that will be equipped with a Toyota 4age blacktop 20 valve.
Currently has S13 coilovers from J2 in it. Doesn't have the shock and spring setup in the rear anymore. Will be rolling on some JNC wheels wrapped with Bridgestone Potenza RE11's
Started the project this week. Dropped the crappy 1.3 engine last night and test fitted the 4age.

Oh, I will :D

Also, if anyone can tell me where to get a cheap steering wheel hub for the thing, that would be awesome. I want to ditch the crappy steering wheel and airbag from the car, or if anyone has a used one that's compatible with the car, even better. The idea is a budget build, but still fun af to swing around. =)

would this work?

Awesome build. Keep up the pictures and the narrative. These seem to work well with us monkeys. Just remember to feed us every now and then.

Awesome.
Can you go into the details a bit of what you meant by modifiying the car? Maybe these can be made to fit the mk2 mk3 chassis.
I don't think I have seen this before.

Thank you.

The same day we pulled the shitty 1.3 out, I was able to find a buyer for that motor and trans lol.
Engine can now sit in the bay without a jack or jackstands!!!! It was only supposed to take a couple hours, but took the whole day haha. This thing will be VERY EASY to service.
Now, all the measuring and tedious work begins.
Pictures include the sawed off light weight crank pulley, modified motor mounts, and good stuff.
Next week we should be test starting it before doing all the measuring.

Finally got the car started!
All down hill from here. My boy was able to eliminate what wasn't needed off the harnesses, got the shifter to work, shortened and lengthened every single wire. All the plugs and wiring has been figured out. Everything at this point will be mechanical, cutting, and welding things.

Very impressive work so far.

I am very interested when you finish to hear how well your engine and transmission mounts perform, as the orientation of the left and right mounts are exactly 90 degrees different than the stock Suzuki mount orientation. I've always wondered whether mount setup can make a difference in controlling torque steer.

I don't think he will find out . Those will not last long enough for that , especially that transmission mount.

The mount orientation is the same as Toyota's original configuration. Whdo you think it wont be strong enough in this Suzuki? Not enough gusseting on the frame rails maybe??

Well , why would manufacturers make such elaborate engine mounts brackets if couple of lengths of Home Depot mild steel with couple of not so good butt welds stuck to sheet metal would work =)

Updates:
I don't have pictures of the shifter mount, but it was raised about 4"-5" and can be unbolted from the car to drop it back to stock position. (everything on this car will be made to be removable and easily accessible.

Finally the 2 wiring harnesses have been combine, shortened, lengthened, and loomed together. Unnecessary connectors were also removed, so the harness looks factory as it should.

Pretty much got everything mocked up. Motor mount has been reinforced (forgot to take a picture). Radiator is pretty much ready, just need one hose to complete it and get a new overflow tank. Oil cooler location has been established (the blue thing). Location of the battery has also been established, just need the tray and install. Need to find a spot for the clutch master cylinder, because the swift never had one. Gonna plug up a few vacuum lines, throw on a filter for the crankcase vent, another filter for the Idle air control. Once all the hoses are connected the harness is going back in. My friend will also be making a rear torque mount, so engine movement should be very minimal. Lastly, my friend will be making the exhaust.

All around, the engine bay is going to be really clean and easy to work on. If the motor and trans has to come out, we can easily drop it since it doesn't have a sub frame.

Hopefully we'll have it on the road by next week or the week after.
