Afaik any of the earlier 1.8 engines will work in your car if you swap the 99 head over.

That's a pretty miserable first post. I can't bear to read through the capitalization errors, punctuation errors, and can't really bring myself to deal with this **** right now.

I'm a pretty good mechanic so if you're looking for a poz bottom, I'm your gay.

Welcome aboard, might want to fully introduce yourself in the meet & greet section of the forums. Now for your questions:

Sources for used miata engines (that a quick google search can provide)-
Planet Miata, Parts Group, Craigslist, Ebay, just to name a few.

Yes, your specific engine is harder to find, it is a BP4W and was only in the 99-00 cars in that specific configuration. It's also a higher compression engine than the 94-97, has a better flowing head, and a variable intake system.

Yes, it is possible to run a 94-97 engine in a 99 chassis, just takes time and $$$. You can get your project started using the search box up in the top right hand corner of your screen.
