Hey mate, car is looking great! It's like a double of mine , quick question, what ignition map are you using on your megajolt? I'm just about to tune mine and can't find anything for the swift engine!

Right top news, got an MOT ticket on the poor girl.
Map wise I'm using the standard default map from the mega jolts page. I think it's far from ideal but I need to get on the rolling road to get it sorted out. First off its off to see Dave Yardy to get the suspension set up then off to Northampton Motorsport for the RR.
Got a few problems to sort and I would like to get it running better before the RR.

Update O my god.
So i've been driving around since getting the MOT. I've had the suppension all set up by Dave at Road, race & track in Northampton. Can't recommend the guy enough! brilliant, did it all using old school tools and really took his time to get eveything just right, showed me what he was doing though out and explained how changing this would improve that and so on.


Then it was off to Northampton Motorsport for a rolling road, had a few hickups. Alternator mount broke and the inlet was pulling in air at low rpm. Got it mapped and produced 114bhp which i didn't think was too bad.


overall i'm pleased with the swap


The plan is to take the car off the road in the next few weeks and fix all the little bits i've found wrong with it. Main one is the gear ratio which is just too low for me, i'm looking for a 1.3 8v GLX box. Other is the water pump pully which is touching the rubber cone! i'm looking at 3 options to sort that out
1: coil overs
2: Making a smaller water pump pully
3: electric water pump

I'm not sure what way to go yet, all options have + & - but some have higher costs than others which might be a factor.

O and i need to find a better place for the air filter. It was made from bits of pipe i had kicking about, i need to find a spot in free air for it. The hunt for space is never ending!

Looks good, with the gear ratios sorted it should be an ideal road car.

Hi Alex, I had the same issue with the water pump pulley. I just cut the rubber donut (suspension unit) down in that area ... it's a bit like a big slot in it.

It will make zero difference to the spring rates, is super quick to do and costs nothing.

You will need to leave enough clearance for engine mount movement ...but thats only 5 mil or so.

Nice build by the way - G1B's are infectious revers .... and make nice power too.

Ohh, these boys sold me a 1.3GLX box for about 120 including shipping.

Currently listing another 1.3 GLX Swift.

Pictures on Ebay show it still in the car with the box attached ... so maybe they have the box for that too?

Northamptonshire Vehicle Recycling Centre Tel: 01933 225511 ... not a million miles away from you maybe?

You are dead right - the mags seem to feature loads of A series cars and the owners claim 125 bhp plus type numbers ... on normally aspirated engines.

I'd love to actually put one of these 20K plus cars against one of ours ... it would prove you don't need to spend big money for big smiles. You just need some engineering savvy and a great forum to help you through.

Progress hasn't really started yet... been trying to sort out my garage, i see some people build and i enviy your work space. I just got a standard size prefab garage even with just a mini its a bit tight so i've converted my shed in to a parts store.
The plan is
1. Engine and gearbox out
2. remove gearbox
3. fit a new GLX box (still need to buy)
4. Sort out engine bay, cleanup wiring etc
5. Remove water pump from engine, remove impellor and block up shalf holes
6. change cambelt
7. refit engine& box
8. install new electric water pump ( been looking in to them and i feel like giving it a try)
9. Install MPI tank, run return fuel line
10. make a new inlet manifold for the ITB (still to buy)
11. install all other fuel inject stuff
12. majicly finish everything else start engine first time and have a cup of tea.

what do you think, finished by friday.... Maybe i'm biting off more than i can manage over just a few months... Might hold off on fuel injection untill next winter and just collect parts over the year.

O yeah, it always comes off the road for winter every year.

The big question is can i sort out the fuel injection system before April..... :-s
I might have to start selling off my A series parts to pay for some stuff
