Whoa, slow down.

This is what that should have looked like:

Hi, I recently just bought a 1991 Mazda Miata. It has the 1.6L and a 5spd. I'd like to increase the power, but turbos scare me. I've heard there is a chance to throw a rod or piston.

I'm open to anything, even if it means swapping in a new engine and trans. I plan on putting in a 6spd anyways.

I don't have much experience with foreign cars, so I'm open to suggestions. What would you recommend for the most power.


There now that we have something understandable...

Many people do v8 swaps. The info is out there, you need to do some research though. You can also go the turbo route, it is only as safe as you make it. Ensure you are starting with a good engine, use proper engine management, and with a good tune you will be fairly safe.

However, I am not familiar with foreign cars. I don't know what to do or what swaps are possible.I want to be able to put the biggest engine and transmission I can properly install. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Pull that **** again and we will have issues.

EDIT: Please install a huge V8 so I can rape it with my 1.6

You really need to read the stickies, your questions are answered there. Believe it or not, your not the first person to come here and ask questions regarding what is necessary to turbocharge a 1.6 Mazda Miata.

If you want to go fast, get two magnets. Attach one to the front of your hood. Now get a large pole, and attach the other magnet to it. Now mount this pole on your hood and position it so that the magnet attached to the pole hangs in front of the magnet on your hood. You now have infinite power.

Could someone tell me just what 6 Speed Tranny my B6ZE(RS) 1.6L will hook up too?

I have read where guys are using the 01 miata's 6 Speed I'm just curious if maybe I should just stick with my 5spd?

Newb.

Try making an intro post in the MeetnGreet section so we can get to know you better. It's hard to give specific advice without knowing your technical capabilities, experience, and equipment level.

Then read all of the stickied FAQs and write-ups. They're infinitely valuable.


I'll be nice and give you your first piece of real advice:

Read into engine management first if you don't like picking up chunks of motor off the street.

Everyone that is scared of turbos has one thing in common: They're also scared of proper engine management theory and application (aka tuning).

It's not a direct fit but you can make it work. You may want to buy a 20g adapter so it will bolt on without having to do any custom fabrication.

One from a Miata.

(This isn't a smartass answer, there was only one Miata 6-speed transmission, offered as an option in the '99 and later cars.)

Honestly, the 6-speed is only necessary for the folks making upwards of 250 HP, which is quite a lot in a car this light. The vast majority of us (myself included) are using the standard 5-speed. If it breaks, you'll know that you needed a 6-speed. If it does not break, you'll know that you didn't.
