Glacier build
« on: January 13, 2019, 02:41:18 PM »

I'm stuck at work watching a progress bar load.... so i think i'll spend the time moving a thread I had started on Zukirawlers, and zuwharrie.  I'm not sure if anyone over here is interested.


I have plans to swap in g13bb, 1.3 16v, into my samurai and control it with a Megasquirt ecu.

Why?
I like fuel injection
I like the idea of sticking with a 1.3 in samurai
Megasquirt looks fun.

Why not a 1.6 16v?
'cause i dont want too?  I don't have a great reason.

Here is the little truck that will hopefully be powered by a  sequentially injected 1.3.

I'm starting with a 1.3 from a 2000 swift.  I picked it for $50,  but is missing some parts, suck as ignition coils and sensors.

Also bought a harbor freight engine stand from craigslist, and an engine hoist.

The g13bb intake ports are a LOT bigger than the g13a.   Notice the quarter for scale in the pictures.   Hopefully that will mean more hamster power!

I should mention that this is thread is going to be updated at a glacial pace.  The monetary budget is good, but the time budget is almost nonexistent.

I took the head off to evaluate the motor, and got some bad news.    One of the valves was burned.  But hey it was $50.   I'm just going to hand lap the valves and put everything back together.  I don't want to experiment with megasquirt on a new rebuild.

I took apart the g13bb alternator today to clean, it was pretty dirty.  Its a very similar alternator to the Samurais, but does sport an extra 10 amps, a whole whopping 55A!  Plug looks the same too.  I also took the opportunity peak at the bearings.  I'm glad i did, the grease in the front bearing was really waxy, most of the oil had separated out.

I need to take some pictures, but nagtrainer welded the swift pan to the samarui pan so i could clear the axle.  the samauri pan didn't have a spot for the crank position sensor.

I'm super interested in this build. More modern things like EFI are always up my alley. I have experience with TBI, LT1, and LS GM engines, so my experience is better than with carb stuff.

Is the g13bb a rear wheel drive platform? I don't know if I've even seen a Swift before.

The Suzuki swift is the same thing as the Geo/chevy Metro.   GM just bought the car from suzuki.   The g13bb came out of a front wheel drive car, and the thermostat is on the back of the block.   I'm going to attempt the intake so the coolant comes out in the stock location.   

I tried to upload pictures of the work on the intake, but i got the following message.

Some of my pictures pass the security checks, but not all.   The "finished" weld pics didn't.

Was wondering how you were going to get past the Thermostat in the back of the head.. I used a Buick Radiator hose and a Nissan therm housing...

Nice job

'cause i dont want too?  I don't have a great reason.

The G13BB has plenty of Poop, trust me. It's like going from a 305 to a 350... Ford guy's a 5.4 Triton to a 5.0 Coyote (us old guys, a 260 to a 302)

Anyway, with a stock T-case and stock diff's I was able to travel up and down Hwy 15 with out to much trouble or down shifting into 4th. had no issue doing 85 either... When I swapped to kick gears in the diffs I hit 100 in fifth bouncing the rev limiter at 68-7000 RPM. that's using two measurements, Radar (speed trap) and the Lowrance GPS. With the MicroSquirt I could tune it and was a bit quicker.
Remind you this was a stock G13BB from a Swift. I put flat tops and a cam in it. Microsquirt and it woke right up.

I recommend going to the larger 1.6 TB as it is 5 mm bigger. also MY sells a Try Y that works really damn good for bottom end power.
