You're not going to believe this. I just searched google for "duratec rwd tranmission" and I got a frickin' million results. Oh, and welcome to the internet.

Oh, and there's a Mazda KL06 v6 in the MX6...

I think what they are getting at is....... They don't know, or for some reason want to burn someone. LOL
It sounds like this will be a project that will take alot of research, and trial and error.

Anyway, the ranger and mazda truck tranny will bolt to the miata motor. So if you can put that motor in a mazda truck your good.
There is a swap list for all RWD Mazda's out there on a site. It wasn't too hard to find last time. I think I was linked to it off of Miata.net garage.

Mabe a Rx7 trans will bolt to it.??? That would be better.
Hope it works out for ya.

Good luck.
