It doesn't have anything done to the exterior. Still has the stock wheels with the hubcaps on it. My car has been boosted for...
  3. BUILD UPDATE!!! Still need suggestions.

    Forced Induction
    So from my last thread I have dropped a few things off the list with the help from you guys. I have now came to the realization the 500whp is quite a lot for a street car and probably even more money than previously thought. My new power goals would preferably 300 - 350whp but 400 also seems fun...

  14. D16Y8 turbo ethanol Vitara custom rods

    Forced Induction
    Hey Mates, what do you think about using 140mm length rods with Vitara pistons to run on E100? The car is for daily drive so CR below 9.5:1 on E100 are very bad until the boost comes on. I intend to use about 8-10PSI and I'm at 3300ft. Any suggestions from the experts...

    Hi members. I got myself a old OEM Vitara piston to measure etc for my build. So I had a closer look. Crack is on both sides on the side where the gauging pin is closer to the skirt. Same with another OEM piston from another Suzuki engine. They came out of standard Suzuki engines. The OEM...

    Engine Building
    I am getting Exospeed to sleeve my D16Y8 with Darton MID sleeves and I supplied some 75mm standard YCP Vitara pistons. I was wondering if I should have gone 75.5mm with the pistons.
