    Is it possible to do an engine swap? 2007 M16A --> 2010 M16A

    Long story short, the engine needs replacing (no compression in 3 cyinders, almost no compression in the 4th, motor just spins freely on the starter motor. Most likely bent valves and at 320k km isn't worth rebuilding). I have a european spec sx4 from 2007 with a 1.6 litre petrol (gasoline) engine, which I understand is the M16A. I read that this engine was improved in 2010 models and provides more horsepower and increased fuel efficiency. Since I have to replace the engine anyway, I figure it would be nice to improve the car at the same time so it doesn't feel like a complete waste of money.

    My question is, can I take one of these newer M16A engines and just do a straight swap? Or will that cause problems for the computer etc?

    I should have said 2006 to 2010, sorry.

    Engine will be purchased within a day or two, so any input would be much appreciated, thanks!

    Thanks for the reminder. I wonder if it would have worked. Unfortunately, the cost to replace the engine just kept increasing, so it is unlikely this nice little car will run again

    Served us well up to that point...

    Rebuilding the engine is like you are getting a new engine only if use Suzuki parts. aftermarket parts do not last well.
    replacing with a liw km engine is probably a better choice.
