3.5 qts of 5w30, but it sort of fixed its self, it no longer does the oil dumps. Ive drivin the car up to 110mph and no issues so im happy thus far.

Lol @ OP.

Don't trust used engines = Rebuiling crap 1.6 to break over and over.

Hi guys thus far murphy has been running nicely. Ive washed him and the rims like 8 times and the rims just wont clean up. Im thinking about painting the daisys a white color with a red lip. Im sure many ppl have done this before, is this a good idea or is it just to ricey, and maybe you guys that have done this have any suggestions on how to do it the rite way first.

Im going to upgrade the radiator on my 1.6 and wanted to know if there are any suggestion on a great radiator to pick up for under $400. While im at it ill do a coolant reroute, ive seen so many ways of doing it, any thread suggestions?

I'm running a dual core Civic radiator in mine, it allows room for IC piping on both sides for my RX-7 intercooler.
If you want to stick with the Miata style, get a Mishimoto. They're something like 200-250 I believe. And they're about as good as aftermarket radiators get.
