I've not had one, but here we go;

Different front suspension arrangement *might* make things trickier.

They're old = rust.

I think its the cam chains that make the engine a bit of a gamble. if that doesn't bother you, or you can do it yourself, go for it, I think they're otherwise a pretty decent engine.

Yeah, it's a problem with ANY old car IMO.

There are rust free vits out there, you just have to be vigilant.

I've got a 1999 SWB vitara 4u, with a *few* mods. It's never been welded, and doesn't need any now. Rust free ones are out there!
