Default CAD models 1.8 engine and transmission

Hi, I've been doing some CAD modelling on a zetec engine, practicing modelling exhaust headers and turbo installations in preparation for swapping a 1.8 mx5 engine into my kit car (see photos in my album if you like).

Does anyone have CAD models of the Miata engine, transmission or even just the exhaust flange?

I found some useful models on GrabCAD.com, but no Mazda engines.

Thanks
Here's my first attempt modelling the header for a 2 litre Ford Zetec turbo.

Search, there is a thread that has the exhaust flange for a 1.8 already. In .dwg and .stp. I made the .stp in solid works based on the .dwg that someone else posted.

Hi, I've searched the forum for a few keywords, but I haven't been able to find it. Could you point me in the right direction?
Thanks.

Protip: always always do advanced search, then sort by 'relevance'. Or just search google for site:miataturbo.net <keyword here>.
