This is my old suzuki hatch 550cc 3 cyl

It was fitted with an f5a 550cc twincam 12v 3cyl turbo from a suzuki alto. It had a microtech d5 efi computer, tiny top mount cooler, and 12psi. also had the Alto 5 speed box.

This thing sounded like a postie scooter on roids, with its straight thru 2" system ( one small resonator on back )

weiging in at around 500 kilos, it was fun! Immagine the looks on the faces of some of its victims! Luckily it was unrelliable, hardly ever on the road, and I never became one of its victims!!! most unsafe car evah!

I kinda do miss it though...... might build another one day????

so why was it so unreliable? did the engine and box bolt straight in or was it modded?

it kept breaking engine mounts, the microtech needed tuning every farking day, cv shafts popped out from time to time, clutches used to detonate without warning LOL

engine wasnt a direct bolt in, new mounts had to be made. The guys who done the conversion ( previous owners ) bodged it bigtime

Awww it is so cute.
Just think. Turn it into a 6 cylinder. 1100cc straight six of fury. Now that would be sweet.

Hahah that would have been a little terror!

Love the motor (size comparison with a water squirter bottle :lol: ) I'd say you could just about fit that engine in a backpack! :D

That would be great for conversions, no engine crant needed. Unbolt and lift out. Simple
