Thanked 430 Times in 353 Posts The engine code is G10 from Suzuki for the 3 cylinder, G16 for the 4 cylinder.

PS, if you wanted, you could sell the pistons from that engine, if they're useable. Honda guys eat them up for turbo pistons, since they pretty much drop into D-series honda engines (all Civic 88-99, basically) and lower the compression substantially. They use the Vitara's pistons, but the Vitara uses the G16 engine, and the G10 is the same piston, just one less cylinder and a diff stroke.

Also, in fixing your crankshaft issue, open the keyway for the stupid little key thing up to the next size before inserting it... worst case scenario, you screw up a bit and you're off .5*... which won't make a comprehensible difference.
