I cried, cuss, laugh, got pissed off, nearly kissed a guy in joy (but didn’t LOL I’m not that kind of guy ) … but she was well worth it in the end putting a sss 1.6 m16a in my 1.5 zc21 SS is over…
First are the Thanks You‘s

Okay guys where do you want me to start?
The information given here are of a Hong Kong model s swift 06 + and a Hong Kong model s sport 2006+ non ESP*. I am not responsible for any problems or mishaps that you may encounter
Let’s start at what you need to do this swap over
The pictures are in the same order
1) 1 Engine complete ( which will have the et m16a from a SSS
2) 2 Engine harness complete ( which should be attached to the engine )
3) 3 E –pedal
4) 4 Instrument cluster
5) 5 ABS Module from SSS
6) 6 Dash board harness complete
7) 7 The Key for that engine
8 The Radio* antenna
9) 9 Main body harness complete
10) 10 Work shop manuals for both cars
11) 11 SSS ecu
If you don’t have any of these items your swap will not work properly period, your next option is a Fab. Manual throttle body and use a greddy Emanage with the 1.5 ecu or Stand alone management ( this is where i say the 1.5 engine is more valuable than the 1.6 out of the SSS
I know that some of you are? The Hong Kong models in the disclaimer but yes its true we do have the Hong Kong model of the swift & swift sport... How I came to that conclusion well in the Shop manuals they say if you have the blue wire in your main harness loom you’re a Hong Kong model and both loom had that blue wire … lets go to a little more detail .
Why do I need all these parts? One answer “CAN Communication ” Controller Area Network both cars have it but unfortunately the sss is more advance. The ECM (11) as they call it talk to abs module (5) also the Instrument cluster (4). any break on this line and the ecu goes into safe mode no rev past 6000 and the world of warning lights … so we got to put in the abs module ( which is which also gives you your speed and the IC which will let you know whats going on , eg water temp , speed , tach etc.. for the wiring check Carl lol .. ..
Now you got the e-throttle to contend with, this is where your main body harness comes into play (9) in the center of that nice harness that you will like to cut in order to save you the time to take it out.. Is the e-throttle loom in a green casing that you will need as it connects your ecm to the E- pedal (3).. Oh don’t stop there you need your fuse box from the SSS main harness as you need to power up the throttle by putting in a relay and fuse shown below in your fues box
Okay we are finish there NO… you got Mr immobilizer that’s what the key and radio * antenna is for … (7 &
to deal with . boy im tired now… like you I was but I press on the Immob. system uses the ecm running on cans to cummunicate with the immob antenna , unit and key which is the transponder in order to work .. if you don’t get it its not working unless you go to LM and ask them to reprogram the ecM for you ….. now we are done and you can start your car with no lights but you will soon encounter another problem lets see if anyone can pick it up a hint it wit the ABS system…
Some say if you have all that stuff why you did just replaced your harness with what you got… To do that you will have to take down all the dash board and interior as the sport BCM (shown) is wired different to the swift.. and figure out what goes where you will have to get almost the complete harness system for the car … lol Oh I didn’t tell you of the BCM ( body connection module ) its where all the circuits in the swift sport &SS come together …
Reminders .. the ss gearbox connect to the m16a engine .. unless you have the axels cups and hubs for the SSS gearbox don’t waste your time . If you plan on doing this automatic then the you will need the TCM modules (tranny control module ) and shifter from the sss .. if the SSS you got has esp* then you will need the esp switch & yaw, g controller … to know if a SSS have ESP* ( electronic stability control ) the abs module motor will face the passenger side of the car if it doesn’t the motor will face the front of the car. In this whole excersise Carl only used a cutter , soldering iron 2 times and im not kidding .. all the wires that you need are clipped in .. Its just unclip pull out and clip back in …
The secrets I will keep unless you ask me nicely ….lol!!!
This is what the main ecm connector look like when you are starting to pull the pins out
