Default NSFW boost friendly engine years??!! HELP PLEASE!!!

hey guys im new to miata's but no stranger to turbo 4 bangers, i have a 1991 hatch mustang with a 2.3 turbo ford motor at 648whp. but thats where the fun ends and the research and friendly help of others kicks in and these little matchbox.. i mean miata roadsters... im new to these haha.


i just picked up a running driving slammed 91 miata, 5speed of course. i love it to death.

ANYWAYS !!! which motors in the miata's are more boost friendly than others and how much boost? my friend told me theyre's two 1.6 engines, one being better than the other. i just wanna learn about mine a little before i fab up a quickie turbo set up. just till i save up and 2.3T swap this little guy.

I find that only drift miatas have the best motors. I found that by searching.

The best engine is a JDM 1.6L

If you're looking to swap the 2.3 into a Miata, just go for the gold and do a YBT swap.

Actually no. A JDM 1.9 is the best. The cars here with the 1.9's arent as good

Actually, after doing some research I've come to the conclusion that the Gallo 12 is the best for making the most boost.

As far as the 1.6 goes do a search for the B6T and you will find most of your answers. If I were you I would swap in a 1.8 from a 99, get a megasquirt, and then boost it. Your 5 speed and clutch will probably blow before the motor does.
