GEO Metro Turbo
This is a engine I am building for my Rans S-6 plane. It is a 2000 Suzuki
Swift (Geo Metro) engine. 1.3 Liter, 16 valve. I tilted it on it's side.
About 20 degrees up.
It is turbo charged with a Garrett T25
turbo. Custom made intake manifold, Exhaust manifold and oil sump. Oil pan is
removed and a alloy cover was made. Oil sump is in a 4" tube below engine.
20" long. This is done, so that the oil return from turbo can drain back into the sump abve the oil
level without the need for an oil scavenging pump.
Redrive is SPG gearbox. Propeller will be 3 blade 68" Warp Drive. Intercooler sits in front of engine.
Setrab oil cooler for coolant radiator on side. Whole engine setup fits
inside stock Rotax 912 engine cowling, with the exception of a small hump
needed for the front part of the fuel rail. Expected horse power with 4 psi
of Boost approximately 110 HP.
Turbo Geo Metro Build
This is my 1992 Geo Metro 1.0L 3 cylinder 3 speed automatic. This car had a
measly 55hp and the same in torque and could barely get out of its own way.
So I decided to turbo the car. I pulled
the turbo from a Volvo 940 and the Intercooler from a Saab. I
bought a small arc welder and made the manifold, pardon the ugly welds but
Saab Blackstone IntercoolerBoost referenced fuel enrichment
through the CTS
2 inch Exhaust with one resonator and
a glasspack at the tip
I am in the process of changing the turbo to a Garrett T-25 with a different Intercooler, so I will post up as the
geo metro destruction compilation
handbrake turns, burnouts, doors ripping off, engine destruction, drops,
before you leave a negative comment, keep in mind i bought it for $400
after it sat at a car lot all summer, drove it for a year, by the time we
did this the engine was smoking, tires bald, frame rusted out, wipers
1994 geo metro with 3tech cam 0-90 run
started off idling in first gear then hit it full and ran through the
gears. Third was sloppy because i was starting to make a slight turn. The
camera is bouncy because of me cutting the springs so its low now and the
suspension bouncy. Lot more bottom end than stock cam and top end just
keeps pulling steady to 7 unlike stock cam that gave up after 5
1992 Geo Metro LSi Convertible- Do Not Buy One With an Engine That Sounds Like This!
This is what a poor, nearly shot engine sounds like in a tiny Geo Metro. If
you are looking to buy a small Geo Metro that a seller has, which has an
engine that sounds like this, do not let that seller tell you, "Oh, that's
normal", or "That's how they all sound..." or "That's how all little three
cylinder cars sound..." All lies.
Chances are the engine has some bad valves, and is only running on two of
the three cylinders. The engine is likely completely shot, practically
worthless, and will likely need to be swapped out with another engine just
to salvage the car.
You are better off looking for a different car.
Twin Turbo Hemi Dodge Magnum RT on Dyno @ Big 3 Racing
2005 Dodge Magnum RT With a 392 stroker and a Big 3 Racing turbo kit, had a bad transmission during pull, as
soon as it hit 5000 RPM it would kick out of gear. The graph was steadly
increasing and hit 670 whp and 689 wtq, and still had another 1500 RPM
atleast. Still need to tune for race gas so we can see some big power
