Here are my answers:
gayara > vazara
vilzu > ginku
fana > kana
shari > shari
rizuwa > riyuda
muzha > tuzha

no change: sh, zh, n, nt, p, r
reversals: y-z, t-m, s-ng, f-k, nk-lz, w-d
unknowns: v-g (analogous to f-k)

I haven't found any pattern in the reversals, and so have no way to reliably 
predict new ones.
