EDIT:

Sorry we got off on the wrong foot, I was trying to help really.

Seriously, if you didn't come across like every other numnut, rice-gargling, leet speak spouting, dumbass teenager you wouldn't have been attacked that way. I apologize I assumed that this was the case, hope your build goes well.

^^^^^ yeah its a cool swap but he went ... "F20 N/A... F20 superchargerged... f20 turboed... o wait all this **** sucks, im gunna do a LSX"


could have saved the hastle by just doing the lsx.

I understand the whole "no v8" thing tho, i like high reving small displacement motors myself.

On that note

I think you'd be crazy to pass up the S2000 for 2500.00. If you've got skills and tools, I wouldn't think it too complicated. The usual question on a swap is "will it fit?" and it's already be done (more than once). The lowish torque (relative hp) in that engine is moot when it comes to a 2200# Miata. Add boost later and it's all win IMO.

While there may be better options, using what you have at hand makes sense.

If you attempt it, I seriously hope yours turns out as nice as Alex's. If so, hell, if it runs, I would be impressed.

Thanks for the info im going to look at it all. i do have 2 questions the 6 speed trany wich years and what clutch need to be run and has any one every used the Toga High Volume Oil Pump. if it is not alot of work i might jus got that way and not do the s2000 swap. i could pull the f20c swap but just remembered i have not had the car inspected the car was bought out of state so if i put the f20c motor in it will never pass. the look over test.

we could probably answer that but you need to work on capitalization, punctuation, and sentence structure in general. I know we've already berated you for grammar and spelling, but please come-the-****-on.

Unreadable, try again.

You can use any year that had the 6 speed, unsure of which year they started. They were all 1.8L cars, so will need the 1.8L flywheel, clutch, and pressure plate to work.

Fixed. Seriously, you fail.

Sorry I did not use word to fix spelling. Also talked to a friend who finally called me back he said I don’t need to worry about inspection as long as its obd2. so I think im going to still do the f20c swap still it did not look that hard and I love welding so should be more fun the just a pain in the *** like me.

you need to have a FUNCTIONING obd2 system tho... meaning if you go f20c the whole f20c wiring and obd2 system needs to be working.

That is what I think anyway, so don't quote me.

Yaa all wiring for the motor and ecu need to bee hooked up and work and as long as there is no check engine light and no codes when the plug in the obd port then ill be good.

You shouldn't need MSWord to fix simple spelling and punctuation, tard. This is simple ****, that makes it legible...we're talking about 3rd grade grammar here, 8-year old children. I'm happy someone called you back for the first time in your life, virgin.

Anything in a V with lots of cams up top doesn't fit so well. Measure twice, cut once as they say.

Interface the Mazda dash gauges with Honda/Nissan engine harness may take some time to sort out. depending on year may require K-pro to bypass the security key and ign. to ECU. Unless you want to wire in the honda ign. cylinder also. The Nissan guys got some cool stuff for there ECU also UPREV Osiris big power potential. The project sounds fun and Good luck to you, but personally i like driving my car more then working on it. This sounds like it may take more then a few weekends to complete :( , but again more power to you and good luck on your endevours.
