Hi All

I thought it was high time to start a thread on here for my Suzuki Liana engined Traveller for those who haven't already seen it.

Yes, Jimny gearbox. I wanted an engine which doesn't need bulkhead mods to fit.

She does now. I had a Jimny 4-1 manifold on it at first. Now I've changed to a Vitara 4-2-1 manifold it's made a noticeable difference to the mid range.

It looks like it fits very nicely.

Like you, it's important to me to fit something that doesn't need the bulkhead cutting, which really narrows the options.

Looking forward to hearing a lot more!

Yes, loads. I'll try and put up a few details over the next few days.

Here is the mock up with the Jimny engine on Land Rover engine mounts.

Fine. It's insured with Adrian Flux, it cost £56.

Not seriously. That's not really the point of this car. The OEM suzuki ECU won't cope with it so it would become a big job.
