I think this engine will be just fine in the car. The same car we call Cultus was badged as a Swift in North America and came with a 1.3L engine stock. Actually a G13B badged as a Cultus GTi in JDM.

So I think this engine will be good too with upgrades to the suspension? Just my two cents on the topic.
But I think this is a great project.
Btw guys, check this out.
The Cultus chassis seems to be holding up pretty good in this case. Makes me wanna fiddle with upgrades in my Cultus. Lol.
