General information -
Suzuki Swift on 51 Plate
MOT Till May 2011 and tax Till November this year.

Originally car was a 1.0 GLS but now has a GTi engine fitted.


The engine itself has been rebuilt with:
*New pistons ( 0.5mm oversized)
*New shells
*New Rings
*ALL new seals
*New gaskets
*New 02 sensor
*Head skim
*Valve stem seals
*New clutch
*New timing belt and tensioner
*Recent water pump
Probably missed something as there was soo much stuff.

Conversion itself involved a lot of rewiring ( some of it is still not finished) that was done by my dad who is an electrician. Main wiring issues being rear loom and wiper/headlight controls.

GTi's are known to have problems with 2nd gear, but i have sourced and fitted a low milleage GTi gearbox that is in very good condition and goes into all gears and stays there!

This car is very quick for what it is, and will suprise a few "hot hatches".
I would love to strip it out, cage it, put decent suspension on it. But it is my daily car and i need some thing more practical as i do 60+ miles a day.

Other mods are:

*phase 2 gti FARB
*Rear anti roll bar ( not fitted)
* Cat back exhaust in stainless steel.(too loud, i was going to get middle box added)
* Alloys with new rubber all round, wheels need a refurb
* Lowering springs
* Wind deflectors
* Laguna splitter
* GTi boot spoiler
* GTi side skirts(not fitted)
* small steering wheel

Fitted with Bucket seats as standard

At asking price i will include all gti spares i have
* Spare G/box with broken 2nd gear
* MAF unit
* Solenoids and valves for manifold
* TPS sensor
* Stock TB and SR20 TB
* Spare manifold
* Complete rear disc conversion(rare to find)
* Coil

This is one of a kind car and you will not find another one like this. Most original GTi's are rotten!

The car needs a bit of work ( paint work wise) to make it mint, mechanically it is good! This car is seriously unpractial for me as i travel to uni which is 60 miles round trip and it is a pain in the back side although i get there quick !

Aswell as that, i have no garage, and working on the car now is way too cold and dark when i have free time.

Still registered as 1.0 though, so up to new keeper to change that, i only told my insurance.
Asking price: 1200
