Some dude in nocal did an rb26. I'm not sure if he's still around I think he pounded it into a wall like acro 94 does to his boyfriend.

I posted this in the sr20 thread. It's pretty baller advice if I do say so myself (yes I was nice to the noob till he turned into a crying little baby).

If you're going to motor swap fe3 is practical. Anything outside of the fe3 is going to be $$$ and no return on investment in comparison. power to $ ratio.

That said. BOTTOM line. 400+hp deserves a swap look. ANYTHING below is a waste unless you have time and money to burn.

I always think of sweet ideas for swaps.... then realize new platform... or i need to bust out the special helmet and drool bucket.
This applies to all swaps. Unless you're doing it for S's & G's take the above into deep consideration.

Please read first if you are considering any non-Miata engine swap - MX-5 Miata Forum
Think about your project/idea then search. If your lucky,(like me) the ADD will kick in and you'll be on to the next big thing.

Can you still log in to a banned account? I wonder if it's just a ban on your posting privileges.

Either way, good riddance to bad ideas.

He said he was running low on brony images. The internets can't keep up with him.

As far as I know banned users can login and view, they just can no longer post or send pm's and such. I have seen several banned users logged in and browsing the site on several occasions.

I think its still running/etc. Difference is, that guy knows what he's doing and OP wouldn't know how to change the oil in his car let alone do an RB swap.
