G16B Vitara Engine

Hey up folks,

I've got a G16B Vitara engine sat about waiting to go in a Sammy LWB project that is frankly probably for another day!..

My current Jimny is on a 51 plate and I believe has the G13B engine - the basic 16v unit.

Just wondering if anyone knows what the compatibility is like / what is needed?. Thinking more ECU's, injection, flywheels etc. Physically bolting it in I assume will be the standard affair...

Having done some googling it appears that it's not too tricky of a conversion with just the potential cam issue and oil pick up, the rest looks to be reasonably the same as the old 8v vit swap to SJ.

The harder conversion in the SJ was always this 16v engine due to the wiring at the time...

Will get the Jimny back together , go play for a bit, then see if I can find a mo to swap it over....

Or maybe I'll finally get to the Sammy project....
