i pulled the engine out of mine with 285k on it and it ran perfectly. it didn't burn or leak any oil. i just wanted something newer before i boosted it. my other miata has 235k miles on it and also runs great. Both are 94's

easiest way to test the engine is a leak down test.

run it till you lose compression. I clicked over 150k last weekend at the track and my car probably does more track days per year than most do in their lives.
