Hi,

I have a buddy who installed a Vitara engine in his Santana jeep.

He wants a rebuild kit, but I can't get enough informations from him about the engine.

All he can tell, it is that this engine, a crab one, came from a 1998 Vitara, it's a 8 valves, 1.6l

Can I bet this is a G8A engine? Do parts interchange in the 8 valves engines?

Thanks!

If it's a 1.6 it will be a G16, if it's 8v, it'll be a G16A.

Do parts interchange in the 8v engines - depends on which part and which engine.

No, a former poster stated that I advised otherwise:

In Europe G16B is always 16V, G16A maybe 8V or 16V.
A 1998 8V will be a G16A from a Vitara 4U.
