Default Turbo 1.6l in rx7 fc??

I have a 92 turbo miata that got rammed into from behind, but the front end is fine. My question is if i bought a cheap fc shell would i be able to put my engine in the rx7 without spending to much money? Dont 13b's go into a miata without to much hassle? so wouldn't the other way also be true?

Read comment above.
Mind you, someone is doing it/has done it on here. Though is seems pretty silly to put an already small capacity motor into a bigger heavier car...

92 miata drivetrain is not worth ****
not a single drivetrain component in that car is valuable

my advice? part it out and sell it.
$100 for the diff, $100 for the tranny, $500 for the motor

/done

1.6 VLSD diffs - spec miata guys buy them because they are a consumable item. autox guys who blew up their diff buy them

5spd tranny is a 5spd tranny.... I sold like 4 for $100 each

92 motor is long nose so that poor bastard who sheared his crank will pay a bit for it. Ok maybe $400

Arent there at least 2 FC's with 1.6's floating around? The dude with the full AN coolant reroute and the crazy guy with the monster EFR making a crazy track car?

The internals in the FC 5 speed and the Miata 5 speed are almost identical. The cases are different externally.

Popular or not, it can be done.

1 of those, at least the full race car is a FB rx7.

OP: this is an EXCELLENT idea. Motor bolts right in with literally no modifications and even bolts up to the stock transmission! Get a MSPNP for a 1.6 car and it will plug right in! Even a turbo kit for the 1.6 will work with the FC chassis and bolt right up to the stock exhaust. Mazda basically made these 2 cars 100% interchangeable.

I couldn't even give away the running 1.6 out of my 91. Took me two years to get it out of my garage!!! 1.6 parts arn't worth much at all.

yeah, i did the swap, its in my thread here. It's been expensive for me but someone found a stock swap already done in a junkyard so it can't be that hard.


(plus I know a guy who sells adapter plates so you can use the stock FC TII driveline)
