Question Any useful parts from other models or makes , RX-7-8 or non Mazda ?

Just wondering if there maybe some threads with something like a list of OEM parts used from other model cars that fit the NA or NB generally interior exterior but mainly engine performance parts etc.

I know the question is very broad ... excuse noobness.

I have been reading up here for about two years & planning to turbo my 92 and grabbing parts.

So far I have salvaged mainly aftermarket bits :
temp boost gauges & sensors , BOVs , some OEM FD RX7 oil coolers an RX8 one , FMIC , Apexi RSM (not sure if this is useful) I will sell the stuff I don't end up using.

Searches so far have led me to only an RX7 lip spoiler , oil cooler & an RX7 diff used in a NA or NB Miata .

I guess there must be many others that will fit or be made to fit.

How about any stock turbines that may be a better alternative to my Misubishi TD04 like the stock Toyota 1JZGTE-2JZGTE , Nissans RB20 RB25 SR20 , Subaru turbos or any others ?

1jz/2jz/rb20/25/26 are not turbos.
<br />
<br />Just sayin'.
<br />
<br />In all seriousness, we don't really use a ton of parts from other cars. Either Master Class Miata parts (NB2) or aftermarket.
<br />
<br />For turbos, it all depends on your goals. Want to pull a house? Cummins swap. Want to track? Leave it NA first. Want to ball hard? Swap it, bro, it drops right in. Want to drift? Buy another car.

Its a a budget build and I'm not after much power 200 would be plenty for a fun daily .
Not being in the US all I would buy online would be lighter parts such as the ECU from the US , I would love to go full ball but can't afford the shipping alone on heavy items , the car so far has cost me under $800 including turbo kit.

</p><p>That's just it. You listed a turbo designation &quot;TD04&quot; and then listed a bunch of engine designations. Those engines have turbochargers. I'm busting your *****, sir.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Your TD04 will easily get you to your 200whp goal. Buy or make a manifold and downpipe and order up a megasquirt form Reverant (since you're already overseas it won't cost you extra because you won't be shipping from the US) and you're golden. Or if you're not totally DIY capable then call FM and order everything but the turbo and electronics.</p>
