Car Feature>> Turbo Suzuki Pickup

While visiting 101 Motorsport I came across something that is quite unusual: this Suzuki Carry. Produced in Japan as a Kei truck, they rolled out of showrooms with an 82hp, 1.3 litre motor. This particular example however, has been completely revamped. 

Work Equip 03s are popular wheels, but not on trucks like this. Owner Anthony opted for 15×8-inch -29 Equips for the rear, which required custom-made metal fenders. 

The fronts are slightly narrower at 7-inches wide with a +2 offset. The body-kit package was custom fitted by Aero Image Garage. 

Aero Image Garage have almost a decade of experience with body-kits, so they didn't have too much difficulty creating this kit for the Carry. 

It even sports some carbon mirrors! 

The interior of this little machine has received a full makeover. There's a Nardi Deep Corn steering wheel…

…A pair of Bride carbon kevlar seats…

…And matching sun visors. 

A Haltech digital dash has taken the place of the standard cluster.

Near the footwell you'll find an S14 strut brace that has been modified to fit the Carry. 

The Suzuki's now uses the brakes off a Ford Cortina. It also features a custom set of coilovers and a rear end from an R31 Skyline. 

The engine runs a Suzuki GTI bottom end… 

…A PWR radiator, surge tank, Bosch pump and a Haltech ECU. 

Combined with a T25 turbo, the Carry currently produces over 250hp. Not bad for what was once an average Suzuki kei truck don't you think?

250HP in this ? That must be scary as hell :)

2

250HP and that light rear end must make that thing a whole lot of fun and a bit scary at times perhaps...

3

Haul ass and more in style. I approve.

4

too cool! i bet it's a blast to drive

5

Looking at the last shot of the turbo, is it a rear engined vehicle?

6

Wow, I'm impressed. Awesome build.

8

9

10

13

Mad, but fun ! :)

14

250HP in this?! I want it!

15

Why no shots of the rear?

17

I must be shown over steer footage of this vehicle immediately!

18

Trucks aren't my thing, but this was built with taste and attention to detail. Great job!

19

this just gave me inspiration for my suzuki jimny project wicked

20

I have always wanted a kei truck, but with this kind of modifications, I would kill for one!

21

It is just fantastic how diverse car culture is in Japan. Nothing is ever crazy for them, You might even see a Kei car someday that is a twin-turbo V8 powered!

22

Um this in not Japanese right? thedidn't get the 1.3L so it must be Aussie...I hope

23

Definitely crazy! haha

24

@blake83

Yep, 101 Motorsport is in QL. Actually, Australia is one of the tag for this blog.

25

Would be a perfect work truck but it's too nice to work with.

26

Does the back space offer straps for support? I like the simplicity of the design. It's very straightforward enough on its purpose and aesthetic.

27

I see the exhaust side of the T25 has a heat blanket. Who sells that? The only heat blankets I could find through my local shop are for T3 and up turbochargers. I'm currently running a gt2871R and would really like to find one of these for it. I hope you can help!

28

This thing was excited perfectly but for some reason I keep wishing it was a van...but I still LOVE it!

29

any idea what front cortina brakes they used it has and stud pattern?

30

31

Is it just me, or is there a super slammed X5 in the background?

32

This looks just awsome!! I've got a Suzuki Carry 1.3 van myself and I was looking for things to change it! I don't want to convert it to a pickup, but man! Tis is a guidline for me! 

Anyone who knows someone who can get me some bumpers? I live in the Netherlands and i'm having a hard time finding any parts for the Carry at all!

@djlp hey, i am finding it hard to buy things for mine too!
mine's a 2000 van with 6 seats. More of a bus but really, really practical which is why i chose one as my first car. Lowering parts from an escort for the rear leafs and cutting down the front springs is the way to go for lowering. These can be found on ebay with international shipping. the stud pattern for the wheels is 4x100 which is typical for most volkswagens which is pretty good, some 14x7's on there look pretty cool. i haven't looked at bumpers but ebay or TeamMightyBoy is the way to go for suzuki stuff man! oh yeah, and i found that old style boss kit's fit new ones too :)

35

@injusticehere sorry the reply is so late. the stud pattern is 4x100 for like 1990 onward models.

36

SchmittaMane haha i got a van and doing the same lol

37

@Comment heat blankets from t3 fit i think mate

38
