The aluminum pan comes on the Mazda FE3s right? I need to source on of these and start over.

Neither of my Mazda FE3s had aluminum pans. I've got a spare block, so I'm hoping that the steel pan will stay flat if it's fully bolted down to the block when I weld it up.

Guess not all JDM FE3's were alum then, the steel is so thin that no matter what you do its going to warp like a bastard. I'd just get a gasket from kia get a flange cut from aluminium and start from there if I had to do it over.

Anyone know what happened to this? Sorry for necro posting but FE3 miatas seem pretty rare.
