Suzuki has a racing developement division with part for the swift! http://suzukird.com/

Here's the right Geo Metro swap. Buick GNX turbo v6. For those that don't know the GNX was the higher hp version of the Buick Grand National. If you don't know what a Grand National is go back to the Civic'sJDMmadtightyo forum you ignorant ***.

My dad's turbo SwiftGT (1.3l 4cyl version of the metro) was almost as fast as my turbo miata.

The rest of the world still gets the Suzuki Swift and the performance versions are badass. Popular rally cars.

There was a pretty cool article in Evo about one of their writers ( I think Porter) driving one of those on the Isle of Man for some awesome event. Theres a pic of him looking like his head is going to explode from the tension immediately before the race.

Those cars are incredibly good at spending most of their time on three wheels.

Ok, it really looks like there is only one wheel on the dyno in the first video. Anyone else see that?
