Hello

Is it hard to fabricate the mounting brackets on your own??


If you put a sr20det do you have to put in a transmission and diff that is with the sr20det?

Which transmision is easier to put in:
a)TII
b)sr20det??


Thanks

another problem with the sr20 is that it fits horizontally, but vertically the oil pan is too low. you need a custom oil pan or another solution...

How much would it cost to fabricate the oil pan by somebody?

Thanks

Well, if you're putting in an SR20DET, then it'd be easier to use the SR20's tranny along with a custom driveshaft than having to make a custom bell-housing adapter plate and a custom driveshaft to get the Turbo II tranny in there.

No clue. Find a race/fabrication shop who's willing to undertake it. My guess would be in the ~$500-750 range. I'm sure it'd be less expensive if you were able to have them just alter and modify the existing pan, but I have no idea if that's feasible or what.

well for the muscle car guy who posted on here i would just like to say, the reason why people lke the imports is becsaue there an actual challenge, you can start out with a 3000 dollar car and put 10k into it over time and then get the satisfaction to smoke some guys v8 car that he bought for 40k or more. Thats my opinion any other thoughts on that.

dharrk- find an FE3 from a Ford Telstar or 626. That'll give you 2.0l that will bolt up to the miata drive line with a Mazda B2000 bellhousing mated to the Miata tranny. You just need to modify the oil pickup, sump, intake manifold and make some motor mount adapter plates. There's probably a thousand other little things- but they are little. - rob

Is it possible to put in a H22a engine from a prelude into a miata and the VTEC will work? also is it possible to put a 2.4l dodge stratus engine in the miata? And if yes how difficult is it and how expensive with out the price of the engine?


Thanks everybody
H22a? more trouble than its worth. the stratus motor im not sure about but if you want my opinion just keep the stock motor.

When did the Gt35R become the right turbo to use to make 400 whp? Someone has been hanging out over on the Honda forums a little too much.
A GT3071R with a .63 turbine housing will do 400+ whp while spooling early enough to have fun anytime. Something tells me though that if you took a ride in a mid 200s whp Miata you would be pretty satisfied.
