Hi Purtis,

I got FD from mk1 1.0 3.528 fitted into my gearbox with Suzuki Sports LSD. This is for my 10 inch wheel setup.

I was asking about exhaust flange just in case I want to make Turbo manifold.
I will ask my contact in Ireland to get it cut in stainless steel....

Cheers
Atchi

Any idea what might the 0-60 and top speed be with that setup? The FD with those new parts should be 3.9 if I change them.

Yep, those flanges that I got are 'black' steel, can't help much if those need to be stainless. Hopefully the exhaust maniflow will fit as I have no idea how much outside it'll come once fitted

Hi Purtis,

Pickup76 has same setup(3.528:1) without LSD.
He said he did in 6.5 second in his data logging thingy...
I have seen someone making Honda mainfold make to fit G13B in round front mini. So it is doable...

Cheers
Atchi

Thanks Atchi.

Hmm.. 6.5s would be nice.. but with 3.9 it would be a bit faster Although I sure would like to know what the revs would be when cruisin' at 120km/h =)

std 4.1 is just about perfect for a track/street racer mini, but i guess if you are more of a cruiser 3.5 would be nice on the highway

maybe 3.800rpm in 120, will check it next time im out, will try to get a vid from 0-8.500 in fifth to

3800@120kmh hmm.. maybe I'll go with 3.9 as I do need to drive long distances too as my mini ain't no trailer queen

We are all eager to see that video

Short update:

I have been dismantling the ITBs and plugged the injector holes with M10 bolts. I just made threads into ITBs and screwed the bolts in with a bit of loctite to hold those in place.



The bolt ends will be visible inside the TB but I don't think that those will cause much of a trouble there air flow wise.

Some sort of an update..

I started making the inlet manifold from a straight pipe. Here's what I've done today. pls note that the tubes will be cut shorter once I know how the whole set-up will fit in the engine bay. There's still loads of cutting, bending and welding to do before those are done. Behind the itb are the new K&N filters.

As you can see, I've left one of the injector holes unplugged as I'll mount the IAT sensor there. Couldn't think of any other place for it and that seemed like a good choice.



And below are the shortened drive shafts that arrived from Henrik today.



Next picture update will come after two weeks when I shall (finally) install the engine on the frame

Engine on the frame





but now we got some serious problems with the intake manifold. There's no way that I could use suzuki's injectors and fuel rail with the ITBs. Why? because there's simply no room. I measured that the intake manifold pipes need to be in approx 40 angle so that ITB won't hit the bulkhead.

So, one way to get around this would using swift injectors in ITB instead of fitting them into cylinder head. But now comes the question about the fuel rail. Could I use the (modified) gsxr's fuel rail here or do I need make a new one from scratch or are there other cheap alternatives available? Also, what sort of fuel pressure regulator I need? ITB fuel rail doesn't have any fitted..

help and good ideas are highly appreciated

Keep the Suzuki injectors in the head and the standard fuel rail arrangement.

Either put a bend in the inlet manifold so that the TBs are at 90 degrees. (straight up)
Or compromise and use slightly shallower bends and a bit of a kick at the head.

I'm pretty sure that that will also give a better airflow than a sharp 40 degree angle, and keeping the standard fueling arrangement is much simpler.

you can buy stock press bends to make it easier.
I have some but only in Mild Steel.

Hi Chris,

I'll post some pics later on what we have done today. That 90 bends might actually work but we try another solution as we've done quite a lot of work for it so far

So, the fueling will cause a bit of a problem but it shouldn't be too difficult to handle.. right? I'll see how the gsxr fuel rail could be modified to suit. Only problem might be the fuel pressure regulator and how to fit it....

Thes bends I have are like this

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...e=STRK:MEWN:IT

but the bloke also does stainless on the same machine so I bought mild steel to play around with with the intention of buying stainless for the final version.

I was pleased with how good the shape is and how nice and tight they are.

Definitely the way to go if you are going to get a tuned length

I'll take a photo of them later so you can see just how good they are.
I was pleasantly surprised at the cleanness of the bends

Chris

Press bends on the inlet runners... Go for mandrel bends as they flow a lot better!

Well, if this what I'm working on doesn't work then I'm going for the 90 bends you guys suggested

And yes, I'm very aware of that being the most simple solution but as always I've decided to take the hard route as seen below

Todays work:





It still needs a lot of work before it's finished but not a bad start for my first inlet manifold =)

Now, I just have to figure out how to get this thingie working:



And yes, I noticed that the swift injectors are twice as big as the gsxr ones.. need to figure out that too.

Hi,

Purtis, don't forget about one thing.
Bike engine produce more power than Swift Gti. This is due to high revs.
Siwft won't rev as much but I would think bike injecters might work OK in Swift engine. Try to find out what flow rate of bike's are.

Mk1 Gti has flow rate of 160cc/min mk2 has 260cc.

Good luck, mate.
