PostPosted: Sun Dec 01, 2002 9:23 pm 
Yeah, what mods car be done(cheaply) to these engines? I don't have the time/money for a 1.3L GTi engine swap. I can get my hands on a 85 Honda Accord engine should I use that? Please help me if you can. <p></p><i></i>

hypothetically you could...but it will be more expensive then the gt conversion.<br><br>try cai, or wai, and exhaust, then little things, weight reduction, etc...<br>every little bit helps <p>.:Daley:. <br><br>1989 Swift GTi <br>Slightly modded.<br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.geocities.com/craig_d6/carshome.html">My Site!</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--><br><br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://daley.20fr.com/photo.html">Pictures Page</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--></p><i></i>

how cheap?<br><br>i had a metro with advanced timing, custom made ram air filter, wires, Plugs, Ignition coil, Custom 2.25 exhaust from the manifold al the way back and the increased fuel flow trick. it works but probably only good for a couple hp.the only reason i still have it is to see how far i can push it before it goes.<br> <br>they make cams, chip and a nos kit for the 3 banger. but as much as that costs you could just get a stock gt motor and have more power then what you will get from the 3 cylinder with mods. <br> <br>But if you must keep it email me and i'll send you a whole list of stuff you can do with it.<br><br>Megabanton1@aol.com<br> <p></p><i></i>

how much money does a 1300 run for? I'm very poor but I know this 3 banger won't last as long as a 4 banger. <p></p><i></i>

the swaps we do are all carb, MUCH simpler, no harness/ecu, easy to wire up<br>if your 3cyl iscarb this would be better, if you get a fuel injection 1300(single point) i think you should put carbs on it, a nice webber will work fine <p></p><i></i>

I think (if your in Canada), that it's a 1.3 16 valve SOHC that produced 79 HP instead of 70... <p>Powered by a lawnmower, but still kicking ass<br><br>1995 Pontiac Firefly 4 doors GTi</p><i></i>

 Post subject: Turbo it
PostPosted: Mon Dec 09, 2002 7:00 pm 
Buy a turbo andmaniflod 100bux or so adjust the boost so your only running 5psi and hangon. I have a 3 cyl. turbo metro convertible 2014 pounds with me in it. El cheapo tires 165/65r13s crappy suspension no sway bars nothing yet anyways and i ran a 15.7@85mph in the quarter mile, andthecar wasnt running right cause plugs were gapped to much. Anyways that was stock exhaust as well. This motor is out of a turbo firefly I bought the whole car for short money from L0g1k back in may. Came withwing and really cool seats plus really cool ground effects almost like gti and the racing buckets only way to go 14s buy june hopefully. <br>George<br>91 T3 Vert.<br>94 Metro XFi<br>91 Toyota Truck<br>67 Dodge Dart Gt <p></p><i></i>

Hey you can do lots to the 1.0L

it takes time a resources! That's for sure
I have an 88 suzuki forsa MK1 3cylinder Turbo

My baby is done! it just needs some fine tunning.
i suggest the basics if you have no money... intake, wires.. i mean go cheapo and get custom... make a ram air out of aluminum duct like me!

check out my site for a list of what i did

Ya i added a bunch to the car!

i had a good setup when i got it

it was running around 15 psi, now i got it up to about 19-20psi, i added the ram air.. which helps, the NOS, a huge 119db BOV which eliminated the turbo lag.. and i replaced the turbo piping which had leaks. Adjusted the air fuel ratio. i drive the crap out her so it runs good now only put in 94 octane. its running better i also hooked up 2 etrxa fuel injectors... just need to replace the O2 sensor, i burned that baby out from running too rich, also i got an under drive and adjustable cam gear... i advanced the timing.

what did you buy instead of the Forsa?

I wanted to add it to my collection :lol: I have an 87 turbo,and an 89 turbo.I'm only about an hour away,near Brantford.Maybe we can meet up some day,I'd like to see your setup.I had nitrous on my 87,but took it off.How big of a shot are you running?Do you autocross?There is one coming up in Woodstock,and I may go if I'm not working.

ok, fb15 model. thanks, i'll keep an eye out for one next time we have a turbo go through the shop. unfortunatly the new ones are MONSTERS compared to those ones. is it an IHI turbo, it is around that vintage they were starting to go over to the garretts!

the older ones (87-91) FB14's have an even smaller turbo, may be more suitable
