New to Auszookers.
I have a SV420 softtop with a 5 speed manual gearbox and a J20A engine.
The gearbox is noisy and needs to be rebuilt or replaced.
Question is does a 5 speed manual from a SE416 or an SQ Grand Vitara fit.

Hi there & welcome to AusZookers!.
Unfortunately for you, you have a reasonably rare combination.
The SV series was only made 1996-1998 & the J20 was only in some of the SWB cars in that era.
The earlier SE416 used the G16B engine, so the belhousing at least will be different from your J20.
The transfer case is the same though.
If you find a SQ420 (majority of SWB, but minority of LWB Grand Vitaras) there is a good chance it will be all good & interchangable.
Suzuki did some strange detail changes from time to time, but someone else might have done this swap to advise if it is directly the same.
Good luck with your search.
Rgs, Michael

I've looked at them several times, and If I had needed to swap a J20 gearbox I would have done it but havn't needed to at this stage. But I'm fairly sure if you remove bellhousing, clutch setup section so forth and put onto the 1.6L gearbox it will work, but no one that I know or have heard of has done it which makes me question why.., so no guarantees from me. If you send me a text(0437097475) I'll try send you some pic of both bellhousing insides.

Why make your Suzuki like a Vitara, Just get one.
