I am from India. I have had a long standing dream to have a fast Maruti Suzuki Gypsy. Its basically a bigger version of the Samurai. This is how the car looks - http://flashnewstoday.com/wp-content...ST-BS-III.jpeg
Now this came in 2 variants-
1 Litre Carb-
This came had two types again, one was a wide track and the older ones were narrow track. These are no longer made anymore.It had a 4 speed gearbox -
Third - 1.42
Fourth - 1
This is the one currently one can buy with a MPFI engine. This used to come with a Carb engine previously.
Now what i want to do is to buy a 1.3(1300cc SOHC) MPFI and then want to do a engine transplant to a G16B ( 1600cc SOHC 16v) or retain the 1.3 and pimp it up by putting a high lift cam, Free flow exhaust system with headers a performance intake and also if possible increase the REV limit from 6700RPM.
The main use for this car would be dragging and rallying, NO OFF ROADING! I want a fast and reliable car. A few people have done the 1.6 conversion but they say that the final drive ratios limit the top speed the car can reach. I still plan to retain the 4x4 and also the stock T case.
I want to know what is a solution to get a better final drive ratio in order to reach higher speeds. Are these available off the shelf ? What is the cost?
