What type of engine is in a 2002 2.0 petrol Grand Vitara? Any good for a transplant? Cheers
John.

On the 9th day he swapped it for a Jimny.

As I understand it that falls into the anything is possible camp for donor engines, it's possible just not straightforward.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

For a 2002, it should be a J20. I've never seen any information on a Jimny swap.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

If my research is correct, It is the same bolt pattern as a 1.6 Vitara G engine. So would work with a jimny box with an adapter, or drill the holes out.
The stumbling block is the flywheel, Too big for the Jimny box. The jimny is six bolt and the J20 is eight, So can not be swapped. There are some other options and when ive sussed it out i'll post it up, As the options are rare and hard to come by. Also you would need to use the J20 ecu or complete loom, Or a stand alone ecu.

It's been fettled just a tad.

Would it be simpler to use the vitara main box and engine as a unit with ecu and adapt the tunnel to accommodate? Or is that too obvious?

When I was first looking at this, the best information I found was here:

J20 into a Suzuki Samurai

It's still an apples and oranges comparison but does provide some info.

One of the first stumbling blocks that many Jimny owners will face is the legality issue of downgrading the engine (unless you have a 2002 or older Jimny). Even here in the Philippines (classed a developing nation) you can't put an engine into your vehicle that is older than the vehicle production year.

Currently not a problem in the U.K. you're allowed to drop anything you like in. For now.
