    I know you can swap in the later geo tracker engines but have no idea about the esteem engines.Try calmini I think they sell the swap kits for the tracker engines they may be able to help.

    The older VW diesel engines have been put into Sami's before, I think thats the best option.

    A friend put the 4A-GE Toyoter engine out of a Corolla GTS in his Sami. ~120 HP 7500 RPM EFI twin cam 4 valve 1600cc's. Lots of work.

    check out trailtough.com. They know ALL about sammy swaps. generally people drop in the 1.6 tbi engine from a tracker. ( w/computer and harness )
    You wont believe the performance difference.

    The esteem engine has the distrubutor in the wrong place. It sticks out the back. I don't know if you can swap the sami disti on or not BTW the 1.6 16v out of a tracker is an awesome swap

    ive heard that you can swap the 1.0 TBI over to the carb'd 1.3 for instant FI.

    also, i have heard a 22RE is a good swap. ive heard of one doing wheelies because of it, though i think it is BS. ive also seen a 302 in a sami.
