Suzuki M18A Cylinder Head Gasket
For Suzuki M13A, M15A and M16A engine, they can share the same type of cylinder head gasket, because their bore is all same as 78mm and only difference by the stroke as 69.5mm, 78mm and 83mm, it is commonly found in the Suzuki Swift model in Malaysia.
By looking at the engine code M18A, so it is common sense that there are in the same family with the above type of engine, but their bore is 83mm(11141-54GF1), which made the cylinder head gasket need to be have a bigger bore diameter than the others family member.
Looking at the Wiki site which M18A mainly use on Suzuki Aerio 1.8 in New Zealand and Australia, so who is bringing this engine to Malaysia and Indonesia market?
