currentaly have a 86 tin-top suzuki samurai 4x4. It's a 1.3 l has fully rebuilt engine, 6.5.1 in the transfercase as well as 4.30 in the axles. She currently runs on 33s (going to try to switch to 31s for an increase in power) and drives just fine but is a slow turd especially while uphill. I live in the desert so she is my daily driver as well as my rig. I've been looking into motor swaps to gain more power because the 1.3 definitely isn't doin it. I have been told there is swaps I can do from trackers, sidekicks, as well as some vw diesels. I'm extremely interested in the diesel swap but am unsure on what motors would be capable. The biggest thing I want is the power increase. Any opinions as well as options are much wanted
