Thumbs up Vitara j24b vs Kizashi j24b - what's the difference?

Hello all,

I would like to know what differences there are between the Kizashi and vitara versions of the j24b engine.

Where does the extra 9kw come from?

Many thanks in advance.

I'm just speculating here.. But I believe it has to do with the ECU most likely.. (tuning for the GV may be set up for more low end torque instead of high-end power). I haven't seen the HP curve comparison but I think it's the most obvious explanation. Also the difference in transaxles may affect the wheel horsepower a bit.

The Kizashi would have a different exhaust system (including proper tubular headers- has the Vitara?), possibly different camshafts (?)
