Seriously though, mate that was the WRONG first post. there is no easy conversion and no good reason to even do one.

My advice is to post back here with a well written (correct grammar) explanation of the performance you want out of your car, and THEN listen to the advice you are given.

This 'sr20 would be jdm as **** yo, especially with vtec lolzor' attitude is frowned upon here. This forum is about real performance, so again, post the performance your after then listen to the advice given.

A shockingly poor introduction, but not unsalvegable.

Let's take a look back to your first post.

Hmm. You have no clue about anything, and you want advice.

Here is my advice:

1: Don't attempt to perform an engine swap on any vehicle if you have no clue about anything.

2: Don't attempt any engine swap while you are in a big hurry. If you don't even have time for punctuation and capitalization, it's unlikely you have time to do a thorough job of splicing two wiring harnesses together.

3: If you want to install a Datsun engine in something, buy a Datsun.

4: See #1.

Dad came around the side and opened my door. "Since you like bugs so much, I'm gonna give you MINE," he growled as he pulled me out of the car. He had really long nasty fingernails that were almost like claws, and he literally shredded my shorts and underpants from my *** like he was peeling an onion. Then he threw me up against the car and raped the **** out of me. In the meantime, my mom pulled out her lipstick and wrote "Welcome to the world of AIDS" on the windsheild. To this day, my brother and I still laugh about it. We call it, "the day dad raped the **** out of me ." lolol

You're off to a good start OP, everyone on this board just asks their friends when they want to do an engine swap. The rest of it just works itself out. thank god for friends.

Stop playing with him guys. Everyone knows it's a direct bolt-in. It even bolts right up to the stock tranny.

Don't listen to them - I did this swap last weekend in about 8 hours.

All you'll need is:
An engine hoist
An SR20 (prices are lower after Race Wars)
Stock Miata Tranny - will mate to SR20 motor
A wiring harness off a 2JZ-GTE
Mugen Motor Mounts from an S2000

Remove your motor first - take pictures and I'll help guide you through the install.

Here we go with the "I'm so bad ***, I've even been to jail." Unless you mean that prison sex was gentler than your father.
