Looks like there is intent for a kit more so than just internet rumor. Although fall has pretty much come and gone......

I for one am interested in the swap... the LE5 2.5L engines are cheap and there is decent aftermarket support as they (and the super/turbo charged variants) are popular in off road buggies and such.

There are some known issues, depending upon the specific year/generation of the engine. However, it didn't sound like a big deal to steer clear of the problematic ones.

I am surprised that the MRZ/Duratec engine isn't more popular for swaps. Dry sump kits aren't that expensive from a number of vendors in the UK. I would think that a bolt on dry sump kit would reduce the amount of custom fab wok required. Maybe start with a V8R front sub frame sans engine mounts?

"If you take a look at the photos we posted of the original pan design you will see we tried a rear sump. It also had extra oil capacity in the front. The design of the oil pan is and was limiting using the oem mazda subframe and oem steering rack locations. The front sump pan design has eliminated all oil starvation issues under severe track use."

Way cheaper.

Is the K Swap better? Yes. There's a place for both, though.

<p>Right. OEM subframe and stuff.</p><p>Suddenly it's somewhat interesting. Should be quite cheap, like $4-5k for the full swap instead of $8-10k for kswap?</p>

the ecotec is a tough little bugger too that can take some abuse.
I've seen quite a few bigger blower/bigger snail cobalts and stock long block making 400+

Yep, and with donors falling out of trees.

And the GM Performance Catalog at your fingertips. The possibilities are quite endless with this motor.

I would rather a K-Swap because i looooove me some Honda motor. My wallet would dictate the Ecotec, though. They're good motors.

MT Motorsport
May 14 Edited
Our apologies for the long waited anticipation of the MT Motorsport Ecotec Miata swap parts. We will be hitting the market initially with the bare essentials for the DIY guys/gals to swap a GM Ecotec engine into their Miata. If the market is supportive of our initial parts, we will supply the remainder of the small odds and ends to do a complete turn key swap.
Base kit / Individual parts pricing. (All parts will come complete with hardware included)

Pricing is in Canadian Dollars:

Oil Pan - $895.00
Engine Mounts - $395.00
Bell Housing Adapter - $495.00
Flywheel Adapter - $250.00
Thermostat Adapter(s) - $50.00 (Depends on which Ecotec Engine is being used)
Sway Bar Relocation Brackets - $75.00


We will have final photos of production pieces here on the MT Motorsport Facebook page before we go live on Ecotecmiata.com
Once an order has been placed we will require a 2-3 week build time before shipment.
Again, sorry for the long delay as we wanted to make sure we tested each piece extensively to ensure a very solid product for the end user smile emoticon

I fully support anyone developing motor swaps. I don't expect my (currently 210k+) BP engine to last forever. I love the idea of being able to drop in a modern (and affordable) engine as a replacement.

<p>*** Edit: The below information is a result of insufficient thought and should be ignored..however it shall remain here for posterity&nbsp;***</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Hmm.

If not, then shoot... it's hard to argue with the kswap. That torque in the ecotec is sure impressive though, no doubt.</p>

No exhaust pricing though, so factor that in.

The pictures show a pretty 'simple' header-to-crossover pipe.
