Subject: Suzuki Swift GTI Turbo Kit
Sender's Name: ioannoujohn@lycos.co.uk
Question: I am soon to be turbocharging my little swift on a low boost (5-7 psi) set up with a TD04 from a 2002 WRX. I was wondering how many hours labour will it take to fit the kit? and still unsure where i can source an intercooler that will fit? (ive been told one from a R5 GTT) Your help would be very usefull many thanks john.
Answer: Hello John I'd be a little concerned that the turbo choice may be a bit laggy for the Swift.Is this the Gti 1.3 version? almost impossible to price up labour without knowing exactly what you need done. you describe a kit, what's in it? You'd need to find an intercooler that fits of course, and may need one specially made up to do the job properly.

Question: Have just bought a Saxo 2001 1.1 engine could you tell me where I find the sparkplugs, also it has done 13000 mls will they need changing yet ?!
Answer: If it's the engine I think it is, just over the back of the rocker cover. If you don't know where that is, you are indeed in trouble ! They might need changing, they might not !!

Question: Could you please tell me if a standard exhaust system will fit straight onto the manifolds of the turbo's as mine needs to be replaced at some stage, also i plan to put a 57i induction kit on the car and would like to know wether the car will except this without having to be tuned ?. One last thing, do you still stock the various intercooler pipes ( flexible one's) as some have seen better days !
Answer: A standard exhaust will fit, although a sports version may be better. The air filter is ok. The pipes are no longer made sadly, but we usually manage by making them up as required from silicon hose and joiners.
