Sr is too tall to fit without a lot of custom work. If you want to do a swap 1/2jz or 7m are very good motors and are easier to swap into a miata than sr. I think inline turbo 6's are the best engines, torgue and making tons of power, that's what I would do if I were doing a swap. Dont forget thought that you'll need to swap a rear end to handle all that power and have correct final drive so there more to it and comes out to some very high $$$ amounts

1JZ in a Miata
Definitely much larger in scope- especially when you have your ports swap sides. The FE-DOHC swap is by far the easiest swap I've seen (except for the 1.6 to 1.8). Add an F2T crank ($25), 87mm Wiseco pistons ($500) and you have 2.3 liters.

FE as in FE-DOHC (commonly referred to as FE3 because of the casting on the cylinder head). Mazda's F series of engines are the "big block" 4 cylinders.
Lots of info here.
Pics of a 2.0 installed.

Based on existing swaps, the FE3 loves boost like the BP. The car had a sc'd 1.6 before, so yeah it's a little quicker. Hope to do some more tuning/sorting over the holiday. FE3s sell for no more than $800 (plus freight). The intake manifold is a 1.6 top welded to an FE3 bottom. That's about $200 of fabrication. I did the rest using my scrap metal and parts pile. It's less about money and more about time.

my friend made over 300 hp on miata with the first known FE3 swap and he had a bad headgasket, and exhaust flange at the time.

And that was on his first lowboost completely untuned dyno
